“A Doer of the Work of Law”
But who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and continues being not a hearer, but a doer of the work of law, this man or woman shall be blessed in his or her deed. James 1:25 (paraphrased)
Regarding banks and paper by Thomas Jefferson….
"Everything predicted by the enemies of banks, in the beginning, is now coming to pass. We are to be ruined now by the deluge of bank paper. It is cruel that such revolutions in private fortunes should be at the mercy of avaricious adventurers, who, instead of employing their capital, if any they have, in manufactures, commerce, and other useful pursuits, make it an instrument to burden all the interchanges of property with their swindling profits, profits which are the price of no useful industry of theirs."
If you are outside of Indiana where our offices are located, you may hire
Westerfield & Associates
as counsel in your case and the firm will enter an appearance in what is called, "pro hac vice" (the term when a state recognizes a licensed attorney from another state) AND you WILL need to retain a local counsel on your behalf. You are allowed to hire any attorney in any state to represent your interests HOWEVER, LOCAL COUNSEL MUST FILE THEIR APPEARANCE IN COURT CASES WITH US, thus it can be very expensive with no guarantees. We can fight your foreclosure not only defending it, but also pursuing an action against the banker for quiet title (clear title) and for a cash settlement and restoration of your credit. We do and must charge a retainer (sorry, we are for-profit) and for all traveling time and costs and expenses. A sample retainer in our our "Retain Us" page. Please enter your information on the first page of our website and someone will contact you if you are interested.
Best case scenario as a result is a free and clear property, BUT THIS RARELY HAPPENS. Due to time commitments, Westerfield & Associates will necessarily pick and choose what properties can be helped. A normal settlement scenario may be a negotiated settlement of LESS than current market value, We do represent many investors that have many homes.
If the property is vacant, we encourage you to rent the property and have the rents defer Your costs.
