wrongful foreclosure

Please contact us if you are the victim of a wrongful mortgage foreclosure (or collection action on the note) in Illinois. In many case, homeowners are victims of refusal to honor loan modifications, wrongful refusal to accept payments, excessive or unauthorized fees and charges, failure to comply with prerequisites to a foreclosure action in the note and mortgage or federal regulations, servicing errors by mortgage companies, and other improper conduct.

It is important that we get involved at the outset. Do not delay, as doing so makes it unduly difficult for us to help you. For example, if you have a defense, it may be necessary to get documents and information from the mortgage company to establish it.

We do not charge for evaluating cases and charge modest fees if we take a defense case

Our attorneys have a total of more than 100 years experience handling consumer lawsuits, including both lawsuits by consumers and lawsuits against consumers. One of them wrote the book on defending collection lawsuits. D. Edelman, Collection Litigation: Representing the Debtor (Illinois Institute for Continuing Legal Education 2008, 2011, 2014, 2019 editions), as well as the chapters in Illinois Institute for Continuing Legal Education publications on the Truth in Lending Act, Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, Telephone Consumer Protection Act, and mortgage-related claims.
