Gregory Nordt

Negotiation is an integral part of foreclosure intervention. A successful foreclosure negotiation often involves an element of persuasion accompanied by a presentation of the facts.


If you are faced with a foreclosure action on your home, you must consult with a knowledgeable attorney and be prepared to fight the foreclosure lawsuit, all with an eye toward inducing the mortgage lender to restructure your mortgage loan. You may have legally cognizable Motions To Dismiss, Affirmative Defenses, and other legal rights, which may delay the foreclosure action and your ultimate eviction, and place you in the light most favorable to renegotiating your mortgage with your mortgage lender. There are many possibilities and outcomes in the foreclosure arena, and you must consider exploring all of them with the advice of a qualified attorney.
