Attorneys Learn Loan Law to Help Homeowners


Lawyers nationwide are learning about foreclosure law to help new clients keep their homes, NPR reports. Housing attorneys are even teaching seminars to lawyers, who accept cases pro bono, knowing homeowners can't turn to swamped legal aid offices. Some find it "incredibly rewarding to help someone save their house as opposed to help protect a company's intellectual property,” one lawyer said.

Case in point, personal injury lawyer Liz Quick. She decided to help bakery cleaner Haji Mirkab keep his two houses. But navigating housing law meant learning a dense web of rules. "I almost feel more like a lender and a banker than I do a lawyer at times, because we're really just trying to put a deal together," said Quick. BofA finally approved Mirkab's loan modification, so he's avoided foreclosure for now.
