Fell behind on my home mortgage payments and in danger of losing my home. I had a very bad experience with the first lawyer I hired to assist me in getting a loan modification. Someone I trust recommended Mary. My situation was both complex and difficult. She was honest with me about the challenges but she was undaunted and knew what had to be done. I knew I was in very capable hands. Mary was able to negotiate a favorable loan modification, far better than I had hoped. I will be eternally grateful and would recommend Mary to anyone needing help with home mortgage problems!
I was extremely impressed with Mary Anderson for all the work she did on my bankruptcy. She was able to get all of my debt discharged. As a single parent, I fell behind in some bills and needed quick relief. I thought filing bankruptcy would be very intense and a long process. However, there was not a lot of back and forth since Mary was very thorough and precise with her directions making it easy for me to comply.
I recommend Mary for anyone who is thinking about filing bankruptcy. If you are looking for an attorney to get the job done the fist time around, Mary is your answer. I thank her for a job well done.
From start to finish I have been amazed with Mary. I have sold real estate for over 10 years and the big crash began in 2008- with this being my only source of income I fell behind on my mortgage payments. I hired Mary to help me receive a loan modification. I did not feel it was possible as I had not made a payment in over 5 years. I am forever grateful for Mary. She called me and told me that I had received a loan modification and the arrears of over $140,000 may be forgiven and that my monthly payment decrease by $1000. I continued to enjoy my home and so grateful that I hired Mary to help me save my home.
Fell behind on my mortgage payments, thought I was going to lose my home and requested that my loan be modified. After several months back and forth with the lender-Lender declined my loan modification request. Then I hired Mary and her firm and GUESS WHAT!!! I was offered a loan modification that cured my default of almost 2 years and received over $40,000 in loan forgiveness--I HIGHLY recommend Mary for all your real estate needs.
I met Mary Anderson through a recommendation. When Mary took my case I was in a very bad situation. I had explained to Mary that I was trying to get the bank to help me modify my home for months and I kept getting turned down, and that I was getting very frustrated. The moment I spoke with her I knew I was in good hands, she was full of information and was able to answer all of my questions, she walked me through the process of what was going to happen and what to expect from the bank.
As we went into the second mediation Mary fought for me and asked the right questions. I felt I was in the middle of a movie plot, I've never seen anything like that, it was unreal. In the mediation we were unable to come to an agreement due to the fact the bank submitted all the paperwork late to all the parties involved. So the mediator decided to reschedule another mediation. In the third mediation we continued to discuss and dispute banks claim about the numbers being used and the way they were trying not to approve me for a modification, again we were unable to come to any agreement. To my disbelief both parties agreed to a forth and final mediation. I believe this was rare. By this time things had changed for me financially and going into the 4th and last mediation, I thought this time around my chances of a modification were better but again i was denied for all modification including hamp tier 1, hamp tier 2, in-house, etc. Mary was shocked that i was not considered for anything because according to her numbers we did qualify. The fight was on. Mary brought her "A" game and calm toughness. She knew this was our last chance to make her case, but by the end the bank resisted and could not give any reason for the denial so the mediator had to close it and certify that the bank did not work with us in good faith. It was a small victory because we knew the bank did not have a reason to deny us. I still did'nt have a modification and now i was closer then ever to losing my home.
It really started to weigh me down, trying to come up with all the options, should I sue the bank, bankruptcy... or just walk away. I began to get over whelmed with what to do. Never really giving up and putting all my trust in Mary, knowing one way or another she'll pull through.
About a week later I received a call from Mary and she asked me where my wife was, she wanted to talk to both of us.... unsure what news she had, good or bad.... she told us, "CONGRATULATIONS!, we were approved for Hamp Tier 2... we got the modification!" I was speechless... after months of submitting paper work, re-sending and re-sending, modification after modification, feeling there was no hope, uncertainty.... WE GOT APPROVED!!!!
As for those in the same situation plain and simple... DON'T GIVE UP!!!! There is always HOPE!
I was blessed to have Mary Anderson as my lawyer, she fought and never gave up on the situation.
Thank you Mary... YOUR AWESOME!!!!
I had been working on a loan modification with Chase Bank for around four years. I had documented over 100 phone calls with them and was getting nowhere. I hired Mary to handle my case. She took complete control and now I have a modification in place. I do not believe it would have happened without her oversight. She saved our home and our retirement and I would hesitate to recommend Mary if you need some good legal work in this area.
I was one of the people hit really hard back when the economy took a turn for the worst. I tried to refinance but was unsuccessful. I then tried for a modification on my own before seeking legal guidance. After being disapproved for the modification, I was in danger of losing my home. Therefore, I decided to seek legal counsel through Mary Anderson. She was extremely knowledgeable and knew exactly what to do in order to get my modification approved and to keep me out of foreclosure. Not only did she help to get my mortgage lowered by a substantial amount per month but also was forgiven a debt in the amount of $42,000.00 dollars! The process was easy and smooth and I was confident in her ability to get things done for my benefit. I am very thankful to her and will definitely hire her again.
