Foreclosure practice has become one of the strongest and most profitable practice areas today. Banks and other creditors have retained record numbers of attorneys to foreclose on loans, repossess property, and obtain favorable workouts. At the same time, there has been a surge of demand for debtors’ counsel to defend millions of homeowners facing foreclosures, stringent modifications, defaults, and pre-ordained workouts. The laws across the country have changed dramatically as the federal and state governments have altered procedures, rules, and practices to curb overly aggressive creditors while simultaneously halting abuses by the defense bar. This seminar covers the latest techniques to equip attorneys with the skills necessary to prosecute and defend the winning foreclosure case. It also covers issues involving MERS, evidence, trial tactics, and workouts.
