About the program
As a result of the fiscal crises and the inordinate number of real property foreclosures in New York State, legislation was enacted which now requires that most residential foreclosure matters proceed through a mandatory court settlement conference procedure.
While the foreclosure process is long and complex, it was hoped that this legislation would lead to settlements through various work out arrangements and modifications without having to resort to full-blown foreclosure trials.
The Suffolk County Bar Association and its Pro Bono Foundation have recognized that many of the home owners may not be in a financial position to hire private legal counsel. While our organization cannot provide free legal counsel throughout a full foreclosure proceeding, we are able to provide Suffolk County Homeowners with the limited legal assistance they will need throughout the foreclosure settlement conference process.
If you are the subject of a residential foreclosure, you should have received a communication from the court, which also included a letter from our Foundation which directed you to this website. If you wish to take advantage of this free legal assistance, you may sign up below. This will allow you to schedule a free consultation with one of our volunteer attorneys who will review your situation and if required represent you in court at the Settlement Conference.
