Earlier this week, on November 18, 2015, the Law Library hosted its monthly Foreclosure Clinic! Thank you Shikha Parikh, Ellyn Riedl and the Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service (MVLS) for providing this much-needed service to Maryland’s self-represented litigants. Two people met with our volunteer attorney to discuss their ongoing foreclosure matters.
The next clinic date is scheduled for Wednesday, December 16, 2015 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Individuals are served on a first-come, first-served basis, and these consultations are usually twenty minutes. Please sign up, in-person, at the Law Library’s service desk on December 16, 2015.
We recommend that you prepare for your meeting with the attorney. Here are a few suggestions.
- Bring all your paperwork or other information related to the foreclosure.
- Write a list of specific questions.Organize your paperwork from most recent on top to oldest on bottom.
- Write a list of specific questions.
- Prepare a timeline of your matter, including any deadlines.
