Many people find attorneys through referrals from their friends and relatives. It is sometimes
helpful to check with the local bar association or legal aid service. There are many fine attorneys
that advertise in the Yellow pages and Internet. A client should always be careful to understand what
the fee arrangements will be, whether the fee is open – ended or has a fixed amount. You should also
inquire as to whether an attorney will help you defend the foreclosure and help you with a loan
modification and/or short sale.
