Well, we usually suggest that you consult with a lawyer and eventually retain one (we do come in handy once in a blue moon) but before you do, arm yourself with some knowledge. Click on the title and it will send you to Nolo.com which has a wealth of legal articles, etc. Can you represent yourself without a lawyer? Yes! By now, I'm sure many of you have heard of the Suffolk County case in which earlier this week, a lender's "unconscionable, vexatious and opprobrious" conduct in attempting to foreclose on a Long Island home prompted a state judge to cancel the mortgage on the property, and the homeowners defended the action pro se...without an attorney. Happy Thanksgiving!
