Excellent Representation for a Fair Fee
Did an outstanding job explaining our options. The outcome from our short sale was better than I could have ever hoped. I have gone from agony to relief thanks to all the good people at the Lit Group.

Understands how to help homeowners in distress
After my husband's hours were cut almost in half I was losing sleep thinking about how I would be able to keep paying on our mortgage with our son just starting college. After finding out my options, Mr. Lit guided us to a very fair resolution. Our whole outlook has changed. Thanks.

Tells it like it is...Straightforward
I respected the fact that Mr. Lit told me the truth, no sugar coating. He then took control of the situation and the result was better than he told me it would be. He is a great Attorney.
