Foreclosure Defense

During the real estate frenzy of the past decade, mortgages were sold and resold, bundled into securities and peddled to investors. In many cases, the original note signed by the home owner was lost, stored away in a distant warehouse or destroyed. The Litvin Law Firm is at the forefront of fighting the banks to prove possession of such notes. Persuading a judge to compel production of hard-to-find or non-existent documents can, at the very least, delay foreclosure, buying the home owner some time and turning up the pressure on the lender to renegotiate the mortgage.

Home owners across the country are fighting to keep their homes. The Litvin Law Firm will fight to keep you in your home using all of the latest strategies and concepts. The foreclosure process can involve a judicial process or a non-judicial process depending on the circumstances. We can help during either process.

Personal Injury

When a person is injured in an accident someone is often legally responsible. Personal injury is a branch of law that is designed to protect persons harmed by the careless or intentional actions of others. The personal injury legal system sets out the parameters for compensating victims who have been injured by such careless actions.

Accidents can occur anywhere and at any time, and their numbers are significant:

  • Current statistics show that there are over six million motor vehicle accidents each year.
  • Slip and fall injuries account for 16,000 deaths every year and are the second leading cause of injuries in the United States.
  • Dogs bite more than 4.7 million people annually.
  • There are 11,000 spinal cord injuries per year, 6 people drown in swimming pools every day, and there are 1.1 million burn injuries every year.

Personal injury law encompasses a broad range of claims, including wrongful death, motor vehicle accidents, slip and fall, defective products, work injuries, animal bites, and numerous others.

To establish a personal injury claim the injured person must be able to demonstrate that another party has the legal responsibility for the injuries. To establish responsibility for the personal injuries, two factors must be proven: 1) liability (culpability), and 2) damages (losses).

Liability in personal injury law is largely divided into three categories: intentional wrongs, negligence, and strict liability. Damages depend on the circumstances of the case. An injured person can seek damages for physical injury, lost earnings, impairment of future earnings, lifestyle changes, loss of support to loved ones, property damage, and past, present and future medical care and expenses.

If you have been injured you should recognize that a personal injury action can be a complicated endeavor. It would be wise to consult an experienced and reputable personal injury attorney as soon as possible after any accident that causes injury to you or a loved one.

Bankruptcy, Debt Mitigation and Debt Arbitration

In these extraordinary times of economic hardship, there has been a significant change in the kind of person that needs financial help. For the first time in history the silent majority is having a hard time affording their monthly bills. People who are going through Debt Mitigation or filing bankruptcy are not irresponsible people collecting debt to buy luxury items, but are hard-working people who, because of circumstances unforeseen, find themselves drowning in debt.

If you’re struggling with debt, you’re likely no stranger to contact from your angry creditors—phone calls, mail, harassing collection agents, even threats of repossession. Unfortunately, the stress of dealing with creditors only adds to the stress of watching your bills climb higher and higher.

We have helped many clients that were in financial despair. We will review your current financial situation and draw up a custom tailored plan just for you. Together we will decide if we can negotiate and settle your bills down without having to file bankruptcy.
