Civil Justice, Inc. has launched the Foreclosure Mediation Brief Advice Project, a new initiative offered in partnership with Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service. Homeowners facing foreclosure, who do not have legal representation, may obtain free, brief legal consultations on Mondays and Wednesdays from 8:00am to 4:30pm at the Office of Administrative Hearings Administrative Law Building in Hunt Valley. The address is 11101 Gilroy Road, Hunt Valley, MD 21031.
The Foreclosure Mediation Brief Advice Attorneys will answer questions about foreclosure mediation, provide legal advice regarding the homeowner’s foreclosure, and help homeowners understand any court papers and documents received in relation to the foreclosure.
Individuals are served on a first come, first served basis, and there are no appointments necessary. There are no income limitations, and attorneys will meet with any homeowner facing foreclosure who is not represented by an attorney. If a homeowner would like to meet with an attorney the same day as their mediation, they should plan to arrive early; Judges will not delay a mediation to provide time to speak with an attorney.
Homeowners facing foreclosure are strongly encouraged to get assistance as early in the foreclosure process as possible. Housing counseling resources are available through the Maryland HOPE Hotline at 877-462-7555, or www.mdhope.org. The Foreclosure Mediation Brief Advice project is one of several initiatives offered by Civil Justice to assist people facing foreclosure.
