HAMP is Alive

Many in the news are saying that Home Affordable Modification Program is dying. They point to insufficient income as the cause, I submit its insufficient application skills. My firm has many alive HAMPs. I am lecturing attorneys in Nassau this evening on how to navigate the program as well as the rest of Making Home Affordable. The problem is all of the press that says homeowners can do this themselves and that they don't need help. Yes, homeowners can technically submit their own application, but having a lawyer seems pretty important in all other aspects of citizens legal lives (for instance Miranda Rights), why not here? Lets get some really trained attorneys who can fight for our clients in CPLR 3408 Settlement Conferences and you will see HAMP be reborn!
