See what Martin Andelman has to say about how hard it is to hire an attorney for modification help in California.
This is a tricky business. Consumers who represent themselves often get a good modification. However, there a lot of pitfalls, such as knowing when you can reapply for a Making Home Affordable modification and when you can’t.
I encourage bankruptcy attorneys to do more modifications.
The attorney fees I charge are typically less than what a mortgage company would charge for a refinance but the interest rate is a lot better.
