I am an experienced Bankruptcy Attorney and Litigator. Given the current state of the mortgage securitization market and foreclosures we have pursued Federal and State Court actions to defend against improper foreclosures and collection activity. We offer the debtor and homeowner a full array of services, including mortgage modifications, short sale representation, foreclosure defense and Bankruptcy representation.
We also have a practice dedicated to helping the disabled secure their Social Security Disability benefits.
My professional background includes acting as an intern and then Clerk for a State Supreme Court Justice, an Assistant District Attorney, a Special Assistant United States Attorney, and in-house counsel to my alma mater,CornellUniversity.
We serve the communities surrounding Westchester and Onondaga counties in the State of New York.
Hourly ($250-450/hour), Fixed (Always), Retainer (Always), Free Consultation (60 minutes)
Mr. Araujo has gained a reputation in New York State as one of the best, if not the best Bankruptcy lawyer in the region. His knowledge of the bankruptcy code is immense. I personally would send friends or family members with debt issues to Mr. Araujo without hesitation.

I have had the pleasure of meeting Ted Araujo at 4 day seminar and having in-depth conversation with him. In addition, he is a colleague in the Max Gardner Bootcamp, and so I have had extensive interaction with him through that medium as well. Ted is a knowledgable and aggressive atttorney. If you have bankruptcy or mortgage problems and are in his geographic area, you coud not do better than to have Ted as your attorney.
