Foreclosure Clinic Wrap-Up

mvls-logoOn Wednesday, March 16, 2016, the Law Library hosted its monthly Foreclosure Clinic. Four people were able to talk to an attorney about their foreclosure matters. Thank you Fani Kantartzis and the Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service (MVLS) for providing this much-needed service to Maryland’s self-represented litigants.

The next clinic date is scheduled for April 20, 2016 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Individuals are served on a first-come, first-served basis. Consultations usually last twenty minutes. Please sign up, in-person, at the Law Library’s main service desk on April 20, 2016.

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.
