When financial circumstances puts property at risk, protecting the home or other property from foreclosure becomes on of the most important legal concerns an owner can have.

If you are behind on your mortgage payments and worried your home will be foreclosed on, we're glad you found us. You may not be aware of your rights or of how the process works but that doesn't mean you should rush into a decision or fail to get the expert assistance you need. We can explain your options to you clearly and provide you the help you need to move forward.

Some major concerns which can be prevented from the start of this process are: failure to answer the summons and complaint, raising important defenses such as standing in the answer, failing to attend court appearances and submitting the requisite documents that the Court requires which can help in obtaining a loan modification.

At The Law Offices of Melvin Monachan, PLLC, we begin to work on your case immediately. The Answer is prepared and all appropriate counterclaims are presented to protect interests of homeowners. We stop foreclosure and ask the Court for a Settlement Conference where Foreclosure Defense Lawyers from the firm will present your foreclosure defense.

In most cases, our clients do have to sit at Mandatory Foreclosure Settlement Conference and wait for their name to be called. We make all court appearances, submissions to lenders, and prepare all necessary legal documents for the Court.

Please call our NYC, Nassau and Suffolk Foreclosure Lawyers at 516-714-5763 or contact us online to arrange an appointment.
