  • Approximately how long??

    Approximately how long do we have until we have to move out of our home if we are in foreclosure, and if we have an attorney. (And this is after the Lis Pendens) We do not want to keep our house, but just need time to save up to move. Thanks in...

    Christopher’s Answer

    I agree with my colleague. The answer depends on so many things- the lender- the servicer- the plaintiff's firm.. As well as the attachments to the complaint and the owner of your Note. Hiring an attorney that is familiar with Foreclosure Defense will allow you to keep your thumb on the pulse of the litigation and have an idea of what is going on, as well as give you more opportunity to attack the deficiencies that may be present in the plaintiff's case. I practice in New Port Richey. Call my office for more information if you would like.

  • I was recently charged with a dui in Hudson, Florida. I was parked with the engine running while I was asleep

    I was drinking with my neighbor and a friend at my home, in my garage when my neighbor cut his hand open. We couldn't stop the bleeding so I drove him to the hospital which is where I stayed parked once I arrived. I do have a dui from NJ that ha...

    Christopher’s Answer

    First, do not post any more about the arrest on this public forum. You bring up some decent points to attempt to negotiate a reduction in your charge. I prosecuted DUI in West Pasco County and now defend them. You need to hire an attorney to go through the arrest report and discovery, then negotiate. This is a case where hiring private counsel can help you. Feel free to call my office for more information if you'd like.

    Best of luck,

    What are the possible penalties being charged. This would be a 3rd DUI but my first one was over 18 years ago when I had no counsel and plead no contest. My 2nd DUI I had counsel back 7 years ago where I was ajudicated guilty. Could this mean t...

    Christopher’s Answer

    I agree with Mr. Katz, except that you already indicated that it is being charged as a misdemeanor. So, now you need to look at the charging document, (information) to determine how exactly they are charging it, you also have an elevated blow, so it appears that you need to begin mitigating with an attorney as soon as possible.

    Christopher’s Answer

    Unfortunately, as of right now, the banks are allowed to proceed to foreclosure while negotiation a loan modification. I know the answer you do not want to hear is: Hire an attorney.

    Truth is, now that you have had a foreclosure suit filed against you, an attorney can help you successfully enter into a loan modification. The attorney can look at the law suit and determine whether it is legally sufficient, and to attack and use its inadequacies as negotiating tools when it comes to obtaining a loan modification.

    If you do not respond to the complaint, the plaintiff will have a default entered against you and will most likely have a smooth sailing to a foreclosure sale. You can respond on your own, but you could potentially be waiving defenses available to you.

    Many times consumers save money by hiring attorneys to fight for them, you should at least speak to one. Most offer free consultations.

    Best of luck.
