Attorneys needed for foreclosure events

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Attorney volunteers are needed for free borrower outreach programs around Indiana hosted by the Indiana Foreclosure Prevention Network Sept. 1.

At these events held at National Guard Armories, borrowers can attend a free workshop, speak with a counselor, and begin preparing to work with their lender. IFPN would like to have attorneys on hand to answer general legal questions, most likely in a small-group setting. The shifts last for 2 ½ hours.

Attorneys don’t need to be experts in foreclosure law and can help by explaining the basics of going to court and related areas of law like bankruptcy or child support. To volunteer, contact the team leader for that location. There will be a PowerPoint presentation posted on the Indiana Supreme Court’s website with more information about the basics of foreclosure law, and a webinar at the end of August for those who would like to learn more about foreclosure law. More information about these outreach events is available at www.877gethope.org.

  1. Hail to our Constitutional Law Expert in the Executive Office! “What you’re not paying attention to is the fact that I just took an action to change the law,” Obama said.

  2. What is this, the Ind Supreme Court thinking that there is a separation of powers and limited enumerated powers as delegated by a dusty old document? Such eighteen century thinking, so rare and unwanted by the elites in this modern age. Dictate to us, dictate over us, the massess are chanting! George Soros agrees. Time to change with times Ind Supreme Court, says all President Snows. Rule by executive decree is the new black.

  3. I made the same argument before a commission of the Indiana Supreme Court and then to the fedeal district and federal appellate courts. Fell flat. So very glad to read that some judges still beleive that evidentiary foundations matter.

  4. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.

  5. During a visit where an informant with police wears audio and video, does the video necessary have to show hand to hand transaction of money and narcotics?
