!!! 4/8/2013 - Doucet & Assocaites wins summary judgment in favor of a foreclosure client because Wells Fargo failed to follow the FHA rules of setting up a face-to-face meeting before filing foreclosure. We regularly raise this defense against the big banks, including Bank of America. Read our most recent news here.
The foreclosure attorneys of Doucet and Associates, Inc strive to fully understand your goals from our first meeting, and we work hard to develop a course of action to meet your goals. We value conducting complete and thorough discovery during our court work (litigation), and generally believe no stone should be left unturned. We charge reasonable rates, and can structure minimal monthly payments for foreclosure clients, especially when it appears the company or bank will be obligated to pay for attorney’s fees and costs.
We are regularly involved in lawsuits against most national lenders and servicers, including Bank of America (and BAC), Wells Fargo, Deutsche Bank, Citi, US Bank, GMAC Mortgage, HSBC, Flagstar Bank, JP Morgan Chase, Union Savings Bank, American Home Mortgage Servicing, Inc. (AHMSI), Ocwen, Aurora Loan Servicing, Select Portfolio Servicing, OneWest, Homeward, Beneficial and others. We fight foreclosure in both state and federal court, and have many claims and defenses we can bring against lenders and servicers. Our foreclosure claims range from questioning the lender’s right to file the foreclosure (produce the note), to suing the lender under a variety of consumer laws that include: Truth in Lending Act (TILA), Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA), Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO), and others. We welcome client calls about Safeguard and other companies that may be involved with "lock outs" or "trash outs" of people's belongings before the court has rendered a verdict. We are also always on the lookout for claims that we can file as a class action, including for robo-calls to cell phones by mortgage companies trying to collect money (cell phone collection calls can be illegal if a recorded message is played or they call using an autodialer).
Most of our clients call us after the bank has filed foreclosure, but it can be very helpful for us to talk with you when you feel that you may be at risk of foreclosure. Talking early gives us more options to help you, including giving us the ability to craft a plan for you before the bank forces you to act. We have many clients who were deceived by their lender into believing they did not need to respond to a foreclosure. Please call us immediately if you receive any foreclosure papers from your bank. Even if you are not at risk of foreclosure, but would like help with securing a loan modification, we can help.
