Finding the right attorney to defend a foreclosure lawsuit can be challenging. There are a plethora of foreclosure attorneys from which to choose. Many will try to entice you by offering lower prices as a flat-fee defense attorney. One of the more popular offers is to represent a foreclosure case for a one time flat-fee payment. However, it is not possible to provide thorough representation through this payment method because meticulous defense work takes time, experience and a lot of legwork. If you receive an offer that sounds too good to be true, it very likely is. Sometimes it’s okay to take chances, but in this case it’s your home that’s at stake.
Here, at Graham Legal, we have seen many people come into our office complaining because they hired an attorney that didn’t provide the kind of service they expected. Attorneys aren’t always as transparent with clients as they should be. The fact is that if they take a case for a flat-fee, it’s probably because they only expect to do a few basic things for the case; it would probably include filing an answer and requests for production. Depending on the circumstance, this could be just what a client needs. However, we usually find that clients want to stay in their homes as long as possible and find a solution that will allow them to keep their home.
An attorney that charges a flat-fee will not take the steps needed to get your case dismissed or file the paperwork needed for a loan modification. Loan modifications are very difficult for a client to process on their own because they require a lot of follow through with the bank, consistently updated documents, and detailed record keeping of conversations and correspondence. Additionally, we keep a close eye on the court docket, for each of our clients, to ensure that the banks’ attorneys don’t get anything past us without proper notification.
