  • Where can I find a lawyer to help me get a loan modification.

    I recently lost my job and am on unemployment insurance,

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    There are a lot of lawyers out there in NYC doing foreclosure work so it won't be hard for you to find one. You can go online, check the local court house for a list of agencies of free legal services or bar association referral services. Since you are out of work at the moment, you need to see the free legal services agencies or befriend a private lawyer who can do you a favor and help you out. Most private lawyers will charge several thousand dollars up front.

    Doing a loan mod can be easy but daunting because the bank will require a lot of paperwork to get a snapshot of your financial situation. You need to find work right away or get a family member or friend who has a good job to help you show the bank you can pay the mortgage going forward. Google search HAMP Home Affordable Modification Program. It's best to find a lawyer to help you navigate it but all in all you might be able to self help yourself.

    Good luck!

    I agree write to the hospital but also send a FOIA request to the police but they may still charge you a reasonable amount. 75 per hour might be excessiv e? Talk to a lawyer in confidence for a consultation.
