Nassau residents caught in the growing mortgage foreclosure crisis can have their questions answered by attorneys at a free clinic at the Nassau County Bar Association at the NCBA headquarters, 15th and West Streets, Mineola, NY funded in part through the NYS Attorney General Homeownership Protection Program. 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.
Our attorneys (volunteer) will review individual foreclosure issues with Nassau homeowners, help them sort things out, and give advice or refer them to agencies and programs, right in the same room, that may be able to help. This is not legal representation. The attorneys will help the homeowner find out if indeed, they need a credit counselor or a lawyer, and get them in touch with available resources. There is no reason for you to pay any organization to help you negotiate a loan modification or repayment plan.
After meeting one-on-one with a volunteer attorney, homeowners can speak, housing counselors, bankruptcy attorneys and representatives from Nassau/Suffolk Law Services and New York Legal Assistance (NYLAG) — which provides free legal services for those who meet certain income guidelines — are on hand to provide assistance.
Reservations are required by calling the Bar Association at 516-747-4070. Please bring your mortgage documents and any notices and legal documents received connection with any missed payment. Attorneys fluent in other languages are available upon request when reserving.
All clinics are 3-6 p.m. and are held at the Nassau County Bar Association in Mineola twice a month. Call for next scheduled clinic.
