UPDATE: With the recent change in politics in DC, the one thing that both sides of the isle may agree on is helping people save their home. Currently only a chapter 11 can change a mortgage value, but it is expected that Congress will find a way to modify Chapter 13 to allow people to reduce principal due on their mortgage. However, the Local Courts have taken action to allow a modification in Bankruptcy

The Tampa Bankruptcy Court has created its own mediation and modification process. The process starts by setting the mortgage payment to 31% of the household income and working with the bank for approval through mediation. The Tampa Bankruptcy Court is counting on pressure from the Court to compel the bank or mortgage lender to push the modification through.

Creditor Inquiry

Creditor and Bankruptcy Litigation Did you know: Short Sale Attorney Tampa Short Sale Lawyers at the Galewski Law Group have been involved in over 1,000 cases this last decade, but we take a personal approach to each case. When we work to help someone or a family save their home or save themselves from the deficiency in a mortgage, we put our heart into making sure that your interest, your family, and your future are protected. We start with a discussion of your immediate needs, short and long term goals, which may include: fighting a foreclosure or a lien foreclosure from a Home Owners Association. We move from there to a series of avenues to reach your goals, including: assisting with all avenues of foreclosure defense, negotiating with the bank or their attorney to obtain a modification, short refinance or a short sale with deficiency forgiveness. To help obtain your goals, rebuild your life and move your recovery, we reach beyond a typical law firm and have relationships with industry leaders,mortgage lenders, realtors, and investors, and simply good hearted people that are there for you and your family. At the end of the day, your home is more than your castle, your family needs to focus on recovery, and not on legal details. We can handle the details while you move your recovery along. There is no substitution for competent legal counsel. The decisions that you make now can have a long lasting impact on you and your family. I often say that everyone gets their day in court. There is rarely a second chance to come back and change things with the judge or in a settlement agreement. The same is true in cases where you cannot always anticipate future needs and where legal documents are drawn in the best interest of the bank and not you. You need someone familiar with these documents to help assure that your interest is protected and you are free from any future claim. This means that you should do things correct the first time. Just because a friend went through a similar situation, does not mean that they have had the same case or that they know your situation. There is just no substitute for hiring the right law firm the first time. Call the Galewski Law Group at 855-Stan-the-Man or 813-222-8210 now and get a free consultation. Remember,in most cases, we do not get paid unless we recover for you.
