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. Major social engineering imposed by judicial order well in advance of democratic change, has been the story of the whole post ww2 period. Contraception, desegregation, abortion, gay marriage: all rammed down the throats of Americans who didn't vote to change existing laws on any such thing, by the unelected lifetime tenure Supreme court heirarchs. Maybe people came to accept those things once imposed upon them, but, that's accommodation not acceptance; and surely not democracy. So let's quit lying to the kids telling them this is a democracy. Some sort of oligarchy, but no democracy that's for sure, and it never was. A bourgeois republic from day one.

  2. JD Massur, yes, brings to mind a similar stand at a Texas Mission in 1836. Or Vladivostok in 1918. As you seemingly gloat, to the victors go the spoils ... let the looting begin, right?

  3. I always wondered why high fence deer hunting was frowned upon? I guess you need to keep the population steady. If you don't, no one can enjoy hunting! Thanks for the post! Fence

  4. Whether you support "gay marriage" or not is not the issue. The issue is whether the SCOTUS can extract from an unmentionable somewhere the notion that the Constitution forbids government "interference" in the "right" to marry. Just imagine time-traveling to Philadelphia in 1787. Ask James Madison if the document he and his fellows just wrote allowed him- or forbade government to "interfere" with- his "right" to marry George Washington? He would have immediately- and justly- summoned the Sergeant-at-Arms to throw your sorry self out into the street. Far from being a day of liberation, this is a day of capitulation by the Rule of Law to the Rule of What's Happening Now.

  5. With today's ruling, AG Zoeller's arguments in the cases of Obamacare and Same-sex Marriage can be relegated to the ash heap of history. 0-fer
