Lakelaw Continues to Lead the Way in Foreclosure Mediation

Posted by Ryan Blay on June 28th, 2011 in Foreclosure - Saving Your Home, Mortgage Foreclosure Defense, Mortgage Modifications, Wisconsin, , , , , ,

     Lakelaw has mediation experience. In 2009, Lakelaw became the only private law firm in Wisconsin to receive funding from the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority (WHEDA) to fight foreclosures. We’ve done so by advising clients across the state about their legal rights and responsibilities, presented training sessions throughout Wisconsin to other attorneys, and attended dozens of mediations in Milwaukee and Waukesha County on behalf of local homeowners.
     When the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin was creating a pilot program with similar guidelines, they asked that Lakelaw appear along with other law firms providing guidance on the language and structure of the program.
Lakelaw focuses on two main avenues of financial freedom: consumer bankruptcy and foreclosure defense. Lakelaw can provide separate guidance on fighting the foreclosures. We can also appear on your behalf at the Kenosha/Racine mediations, providing advice and guidance through a complicated process against local and national banks.

Don't ignore a Wisconsin Mortgage Foreclosure Complaint

Posted by David Leibowitz on January 11th, 2009 in Chapter 13, Foreclosure - Saving Your Home, Wisconsin, , ,

If you live in Wisconsin, listen up!  You cannot ignore a mortgage foreclosure complaint.  If you get served with a summons, you will have 20 days to do something about it.  You need to file an answer or a motion on before those 20 days are up.  You probably need a lawyer like Lakelaw to help you.  If you don’t answer within 20 days, Wisconsin Courts rarely will give you a break.  You will face a judgment of foreclosure right away.  You will lose your house in a matter of months.

These days, there are many defenses available to foreclosure.  Not only that, Lakelaw can help you file a chapter 13 case to protect your house.  And if Congress enacts legislation to amend Chapter 13, you’ll be able to reduce your mortgage to the current value of your house, stretch out the loan for up to 40 years, and possibly reduce the interest rate of your loan to an affordable rate.

So be alert!  If you get served with a summons or a mortgage foreclosure complaint, don’t be scared.  Don’t ignore it.  Don’t delay.  Call Lakelaw at 262.694.7300 and ask for help right away.
