Home foreclosure filings in Nassau County continue to be among the highest in New York State. To help Nassau residents caught in the growing mortgage foreclosure crisis, volunteer attorneys will be available to answer their questions at a free clinic sponsored by the Nassau County Bar Association at the NCBA headquarters.
Attorneys have volunteered to provide one-on-one guidance, advice and direction to any Nassau County homeowner who is concerned about foreclosure matters or is already in the foreclosure process involving property in Nassau County.
Attendees are asked to bring their mortgage documents to the clinic.
Bi-lingual attorneys fluent in Spanish, Creole, Korean, Russian, Chinese, Hindi and other languages will be made available upon request when homeowners call to make reservations.
In addition to meeting one-on-one with a volunteer attorney, housing counselors from the Nassau County Homeownership Center and the Long Island Community Development Corporation are on hand to help with loan modifications. Attorneys from Nassau/Suffolk Law Services Volunteer Lawyers Project, which provides pro bono legal services for those who meet certain income guidelines, as well as volunteer bankruptcy attorneys, will participate. Spanish-speaking attorneys and housing counselors will also be available.
