I didn’t invent the information in this primer. All I did was gather a few things together
for your use. This information is given freely for any use except commercial use. Thisprimer is living document and I upload revisions from time to time. Be sure to checkback now and then.
This primer is for people new to the whole idea of foreclosure defense, not the old-timers. If you are an old-timer and want to contribute, correct, or comment then pleaseemail me, and I'll incorporate your input. I'll do it with or without attribution to you at your option and in the manner you specify.This primer places high importance on self-education. I want you to get very welleducated about the specifics of YOUR case and how those facts are interpreted byYOUR courts, and on foreclosure defense in general.
I can’t educate
you, but maybe Ishow you a few things.I've decided to work on this primer because there is way too much wrong, misleading, or just plain stupid information
being spewed about or even sold. I don’t w
ant to see youget ripped off, or end up on the street by pursuing an edgy new theory or a basicallydumb argument.
Pro Tip: If you can’t find case law to back it up, then ignore it.
This isn't legal advice:
This isn't legal advice because I am not a lawyer and can't substitute for a lawyer. Goget a lawyer if you want legal advice. There are lots of ways to hire a lawyer. You canretain them to fight your entire case. Be sure to ask them how far your retainer takes
you, so you don’t run through your legal budget too quickly. You can hire them ala carte
to do a single thing for example pleading review, or simple coaching, while you do allthe work. You may even hire one on a contingency basis where they get a cut of your winnings, but until you win they work for free.
I can’t stress enough
that even if you have a lawyer, nobody cares about your casemore than you do, and it is your job to make sure your attorney is doing his job. Thisprimer might help you understand what his job is, which can help you arm him with thebest information and arguments.Pro Tip: Free advice is worth exactly what you paid for it.
