Bankruptcy

Overwhelming debt can leave you feeling helpless, but it is comforting to know that there are numerous options available that can clear the past and steer you into financial freedom. Bankruptcy may be the perfect choice for you and your family, but it you may not be sure if you should file Chapter 7 or Chapter 13. Let us guide you through this process and help you get out from under your financial burdens.

Foreclosure Defense

Even if you are willing to give up your home, foreclosure is not a good option. In some cases, your creditor could sell the house and then sue you if the final sale amount is still less than your mortgage debt. You could also be forced to pay income tax on any discrepancy between your loan and the sale price. If you are being threatened with foreclosure, retain an attorney who can help you make an informed choice about what to do. Our Winter Park lawyers understand foreclosure law and defense methods, and we are prepared to help you.

Residential Real Estate Transactions

Some people think that they do not need an attorney when buying a home. For many people, however, the purchase or sale of a home is the biggest financial decision they will ever make. What better time to ensure that you have the legal help and service necessary to make a wise and informed decision about your investment? We can help ensure that your transaction is as profitable as possible. Whether you are buying or selling, a real estate attorney from our firm can make all the difference.
