Hiring the Right Foreclosure Attorney


As a part of Sulaiman Law and Associates, Ahmad Sulaiman has represented dozens of homeowners who could no longer afford to pay off their lenders because of the current state of the economy and housing market. If you’re searching for a foreclosure lawyer in Chicago, Sulaiman is just the type you need.  


Sulaiman knows that most homeowners who find themselves in financial squalor have been dealing with banks that have given them the runaround for months, and that homeowners have grown leery about investing their time and money into another person to help them get out of debt. And according to him, hiring the right attorney could make all the difference. Here, he gives his opinion on how you can locate a qualified foreclosure attorney in your area.


Meet with Multiple Firms

When faced with foreclosure, it can feel like it’s you against the world. But it doesn’t have to be that way. In fact, there are lawyers in your area who have devoted themselves to helping people facing your same dilemma. Although lawyers who specialize in foreclosures are not as common as say a DWI attorney or a divorce lawyer, they are out there.



Since foreclosures are all too common these days, there is a good chance that there are online forums where people in your area have written about their own experiences. Get references and make as many appointments as you feel necessary. Since many lawyers offer free consultations, you can meet with multiple firms before deciding which one you feel most comfortable with. In fact, at my firm, we require that all our clients meet with another lawyer first for credibility purposes. You should feel certain that you’ve obtained the best representation possible.


Know about the Lawyers

Only two other firms in the country are as experienced as Sulaiman Law and Associates, but it doesn’t mean that you can’t find an adequate attorney in your area. Besides Internet ratings and personal references, I also suggest that you read what lawyers in your city have published about foreclosure, lending and real estate. It will give you a good indication as to their opinions on the subject, and their experience in negotiating with persistent lenders.


Question Possible Attorneys

When you are searching for a foreclosure lawyer in Chicago, or in a city near you, make sure that he can educate you on which laws your lender and mortgage broker were required to abide by, and which laws were violated during the sale of your home. He should also be able to give a fact-based response as to whether you should look for ways to surrender your home, or if you are in the right situation to fight back and retain ownership of your house.


Chances are you have already been taken advantage of by too many people once you find yourself dealing with the foreclosure of your home. So it is important that you don’t settle for an under-qualified lawyer who is looking to profit from your situation as well. It may take time to locate the perfect attorney for you, but if it means that you will be able to keep the home you have always dreamed of, then it is surely worth it.
