As a partner at Denbeaux & Denbeaux Law, I serve clients in legal matters related to foreclosure, loan modification, and debt collection defense as well as the prosecution of cases related to predatory lending, false credit reporting, and illegal debt collection practices. I only represent people, not businesses, to represent the underrepresented.

First and foremost, I work to protect homeowner rights and empower my clients going through a tough situation. With over 20 years of practice, I have been able to help New Jersey residents by mitigating financial loss, negotiating for a loan modification, suing mortgage servicers for fraud, stopping foreclosure, and more. 

I have been at the forefront of the fight for consumer rights and I have paved the way for other attorneys. I've helped my clients get more time in their homes with options they didn't know were possible. I've held predatory lenders accountable for defrauding customers. I've helped average homeowners stand up against banks and mortgage servicers to save their homes and maintain their homeowner rights.

You can learn more about the foreclosure process with our free guide on our website or watch educational videos about foreclosures and loan modifications on our Youtube channel, all available on our website.

I give good, solid, honest information. All you need to do is to let me know when is a good time for us to talk. Call Denbeaux & Denbeaux Law today to schedule a free consultation to learn what options may be available.

PHH FORECLOSURE
I called regarding help in New York with a foreclosure. Josh was driving and turned his attention to my request for a referral without hesitation. He provided two potential resources to locate an attorney or assistance through the National Association of Consumer Advocates. I truly appreciate his time and expertise.

A uniquely wise attorney
I have been a licensed attorney for nearly three decades, but I found myself caught in a lending dispute for which I was wholly unprepared. I am very grateful that I found an attorney who was both remarkably knowledgeable and incredibly considerate to contact me the same morning I submitted a request for a consultation. This attorney was Joshua Wood Denbeaux. When we spoke, Josh succinctly laid out the issues I was facing and presented a plan to deal with things that did not rush to send me and my family into bankruptcy. Other attorneys with whom I had spoken reflexively told me I had to play the bankruptcy card. Josh provided far more effective alternatives that included not only affording protection from foreclosure, but taking on an unscrupulous lender with an aggressive offense designed to turn the tables on them. He is a dynamic advocate who chooses the most beneficial path for his clients rather than simply marching lockstep down the easiest, least advantageous road.

A Class Act
I called Joshua with a foreclosure issue that was a bit out of the ordinary, he answered my questions and even formally introduced me to another attorney that he felt could be a better fit for my situation. Joshua Wood Denbeaux is truly a Class Act.

Call Josh 1st!
I highly recommend attorney Josh Denbeaux! You've hit the jackpot in attorney Josh Denbeaux IF you're looking for a bankruptcy attorney who is knowledgeable, competent, and responsive. Timeline in my case bears this out: ~ 1/22/2022: Via email received same day referral to local attorney. ~ 1/22/2022: Same day follow-up via email from local attorney. ~ 1/26/2022: Free phone consult with local attorney who gave me the comfort and clarity I needed to understand where I am in my bankruptcy process, and what my options are as far as keeping my home of 24 years. BTW, clarity I had sought in writing and by phone since 12/8/2021 (documented), and did NOT receive from my own bankruptcy attorney of 3 years. I highly and wholeheartedly recommend attorney Josh Denbeaux. He's the bankruptcy attorney, I 100% believe, you want in your corner for the best outcome in your situation!

Response from Joshua Denbeaux January 27, 2022
This is the good that comes from taking a call, and helping someone even though you are never going to be able to see a fee. This reviewer contacted me even though she was out of state. I was able to identify the problem and get her to the right attorney with an email of thoughts on the scope of the case. And from that, I get a happy consumer, a wonderful review, a new follower to my Youtube channel and a new friend! All is good in this weird, weird world today.

I did an initial consultation with Josh and it was clear that he was super knowledgeable, strategic and helpful. I’d done pretty extensive research about my particular issue, and Josh was the only attorney I found that I felt would bring additional value to help find a positive outcome. Highly recommend

Call Josh Denbeaux to consult about a complicated RE issue going back over 20 years. He listens…he thought about what was said….he commented and the clearly knew which way to go as he’d need down this path before. I have spoken to several attorneys who claimed to know about RE. Josh didn’t claim…. He knew!

A top-notch lawyer
I consulted with Josh about a foreclosure matter and was very impressed with his depth of knowledge, candor and practical approach. He took the time to research the circumstances of my complex case and answered my questions thoroughly. What I most appreciated was Josh's honesty when retaining him would not have made sense. Josh is a very smart lawyer and I highly recommend him.

Helped me avoid foreclosure
I went to see Josh Denbeaux when my foreclosure seemed to be coming to fruition after 7 years of trying to save my home. I saw 3 attorneys before I went to see Josh. They all charged me a high consult fee and all recommended bankruptcy to save my home. I didn't get a good feeling with any of them. It was so discouraging that I came close to not driving 1 hour away to see Josh for his opinion. I expected more of the same shady advice. I'm so glad I pushed my depressed self to go. First of all, Josh took the time to see me at no charge and he made sure I brought the necessary docs so our meeting would be productive. Let me say that Josh was so encouraging and uplifting to me. He was honest enough to tell me that bankruptcy would not save my home, (after our meeting he referred me to see a colleague that specialized in bankruptcy/accounting who confirmed that fact, no charge to me), that there was nothing in my loan docs that was illegal and it wouldn't make sense for me to hire him. He instead encouraged me to go to court and fight (I had my court date in a few days). He said I was doing a great job for 7 years and I could do this! He advised me to tell the judge that I never had mediation, that I had completed 2 forebearance plans, that I was told my income was too high, too low (all true information that I told Josh at our meeting), basically to fight back against the BS excuses the bank was giving me for denying me a loan modification. I did just that and the Judge sided with me!!!! She cancelled the foreclosure proceedings until my mod app was reviewed (bank was trying to push it through before the app was reviewed, bums!!!) Two days later I got an offer to modify my mortgage and I saved my home!!!! I want to thank Josh Denbeaux for encouraging me when I was so close to giving up. I will always be grateful to you!!!!!!!! You showed care and concern for my plight, a genuine want to help me in my battle, which was so unlike the other attorneys I went to. So glad I took the hour drive!!!!!!!!

Professional and straight forward
I would recommend Josh Denbeaux 100%. He is straight forward, honest and pulls no punches. Having to contact an attorney is stressful enough, but having one that listens, and doesn’t waste your time with pie-in-the sky ideas is invaluable. He has a strong understanding of NJ law and will give you his opinion - I have found him to be only professional and honest.

Josh is a great guy. He spent an hour & a half with me on a free consultation. He reviewed my case and discussed it with me in an honest & concise way. I would also like to thank his staff. They all went out of their way to be helpful.

Joshua Denbeaux was extremely helpful
I first went to see Joshua Denbeaux 5-6 years ago when we were threatened with foreclosure. I didn't feel hiring him at that time was our strongest position because we were in no position for attorney's fees. It's five years after our loan modification. I misunderstood the bank speak of the terms of the loan. He clarified it all for me, explained what will happen in the future and assured me I still have a good deal. All this in the free consultation session. I highly recommend him because he has drive and is not afraid to stand up to the banks.
