You need Bess & Freyberg, P.A. on your side. Do not trust the banks to stop your foreclosure while they are negotiating a mortgage modification or short sale. Either through deceit or incompetence, Mortgage Lenders often go through with the mortgage foreclosure even while they are negotiating with you to pursue alternatives.
Bess & Freyberg, P.A. will not charge you to help defend your foreclosure. Many foreclosure attorneys charge their clients an unreasonable amount to defend foreclosures, and many attorneys charge their clients a certain amount each month to stay in their homes. Still others will charge new fees every few months in order for the attorney to keep representing you. These fees are often based upon the time that you stay in your home, and not on the time the attorney actually spends on your case.
Bess & Freyberg, P.A. believes in finding long term solutions for their foreclosure clients, and will not charge you for what many attorneys call STRATEGIC DEFAULTS. In some cases, these so-called strategic defaults buy time for their clients, but do not resolve the ultimate issue: GETTING RID OF YOUR UPSIDE DOWN OR UNDER WATER HOME WITHOUT FUTURE LIABILITY. We will help you buy time in your home without charge, and look for more permanent resolutions to your long-term issues to restore your peace of mind.
Bess & Freyberg, P.A. can help you even if you are behind on your mortgage payments. If you hire Bess & Freyberg, P.A. to fight your foreclosure, we may be able to keep you in your home, payment free, while we work out an affordable modification with your bank. Carole Bess, along with a few other attorneys, mediators, and the Chapter 13 Trustee, helped put together one of the most successful mortgage modification program in the country. The program has an 86% success rate, while most other programs have a 4-10% success rate. If you hire an attorney to help you with your modification, ask that attorney for documentation of their success rate for modifications. The mortgage modification program in the Chapter 13 program costs $1800.00-$2000.00 in attorney fees, which can largley be paid in the Chapter 13 plan over time. If you want to save your home, make sure you are not paying an attorney too much for their services, and make sure your chances of success are as high as they can possibly be.
SURRENDERING YOUR HOME

Do not simply walk away from your home, or you may face grave financial consequences down the road. Bess & Freyberg, P.A. may help you stay in your home as long as possible without charging you attorney fees, and later can help you avoid a deficiency judgment. A deficiency judgment is a money judgement that's entered against you, for the difference between what you owe on your house, together with attorney fees and costs, versus the amount that your house is eventually sold at auction. Bess & Freyberg, P.A. may also help you avoid any tax consequences to surrendering your home. DO NOT SURRENDER YOUR HOME WITHOUT THE HELP OF AN ATTORNEY!

HIRE AN EXPERIENCED ATTORNEY!
Filing for bankruptcy protection is an important step, and you should not try to "go it alone." You should also make sure your bankruptcy attorney is qualified to file your bankruptcy. Make sure your attorney has the experience you need. Ask any prospective bankruptcy attorney how long they have been practicing bankruptcy law, and ask how many chapter 13s the attorney has filed, and how many chapter 7s, the attorney has filed. If an attorney has not filed very many chapter 13s, that should be a red flag the attorney may not be as experienced as you need.
