About Foreclosure Defense: A Practical Litigation Guide

The United States is in the midst of an unprecedented foreclosure epidemic, and there are things that lawyers must do for homeowners that they cannot do themselves to help save their homes. Foreclosure Defense will assist you in navigating alternative dispute resolutions to hopefully avert a foreclosure action from even being filed against your client; but if an action is filed, the book offers many possible litigation strategies and defenses.

Citing the most recent and developing cases, Foreclosure Defense focuses on a number of issues raised in recent law and news, as well as the predominant recurring issues. In three parts--Ethical Considerations, Trial Basics, and Summary Judgment and Beyond--the book walks you through the basics of loans, the applicable federal laws with a look at different state regulations, what loan modification programs are available, unscrupulous bank practices, affirmative defenses, getting summary judgment dismissed, and everything else you need to know to protect your client's home, as well as what to counsel when you cannot. The book also includes a comprehensive CD of sample forms, motions, notices, etc.
