Helping Clients Explore All Options for Keeping Their Homes
The rate of home foreclosures has reached crisis level in Illinois and nationwide, with more and more people falling into default on their mortgages every month. If you are facing the threat of foreclosure, you should waste no time contacting a lawyer to discuss your options.
At Forkan Law Offices, with offices in Homer Glen and Chicago, we are committed to helping clients throughout the Chicagoland area find solutions to foreclosure. Joliet foreclosure defense attorney Michael Forkan helps clients pursue a variety of legal options, including the following:
- Foreclosure defense: If the bank's paperwork is not in order and it cannot prove its case, we may be able to avoid or delay the foreclosure by defending your case in court.
- Loan modifications: The loan modification process has many pitfalls. Mr. Forkan can diligently advocate for your interests in negotiations to reduce your monthly payment.
- Short sales: If you are prepared to give up your home but your mortgage is underwater, we may be able to help you negotiate a short sale so you can walk away with no debt.
- Bankruptcy: Filing for bankruptcy may help you keep your home by eliminating other debts or by putting your mortgage arrears (missed payments) on a payment plan.
Mr. Forkan has an extensive background in real estate law and the real estate industry, giving him a great deal of insight into foreclosure situations. We do not claim to offer one-size-fits-all solutions. Instead, we will work with you to come up with the right strategy for your situation.
