Foreclosure filings, bkoth judicial and non-judicial, continue with no end in sight. The Barnes law Firm together with its network attorneys have recently been retained on new foreclosure cases in New York, New Jersey, Oregon, Washington, Tennessee, and Florida for both trial court and appellate level representation.

Several of these cases involve situations where homeowners attempted to represent themselves, which we have historically cautioned against as foreclosure defense is a complicated area of the law involving issues from contract law, constitutional law, real estate law, and, in securitization cases, securities law as well, in addition to a working knowledge of the applicable procedural rules. A non-attorney who attempts to defend a foreclosure action in this climate is literally stepping into a legal mine field.

We encourage all homeowners who are subject to a foreclosure to seek competent counsel who is familiar with the issues and who practices foreclosure defense on a regular basis. This area of the law is not something one should “dabble” in or attempt to learn over the weekend on the internet.

We wish everyone a happy and safe July 4 holiday.
