Whether buying a home or losing a home to foreclosure everyone should have an experienced attorney looking out just for them. I tell many clients that attorneys are like plumbers, when you try to do the work yourself and then decide you need to hire the expert, the expert costs more but unlike a plumber an attorney may not be able to fix what you did. This is true in litigation and contracts.
I started practicing law in 1989 or towards the end of the last "up" economic cycle handling real estate/construction/general litigation. During the previous "down" cycle of the early 1990s I represented lenders in several thousand foreclosure actions. Then in the most recent "up" cycle I primarily represented buyers and sellers of property handling over 5,000 real estate closings. Throughout my career I have represented purchasers of foreclosed properties at the courthouse steps and homeowners in foreclosure in all aspects of the foreclosure process. Now that we are again in a "down" cycle my practice has shifted primarily back to real estate litigation and representing homeowners faced with foreclosure. I continue to represent buyers and sellers of real property and in today's complex real estate world an attorney has become a necessity in a real estate closing.
