At Myers & Eichelberger, we believe a loan modification should include a reduction in principle, not just a lower interest rate.
-J. Owen Myers
We acknowledge that a principle reduction may not be possible in every case, but we do work hard to help you obtain the best possible loan modification that you get. We are not looking to help our clients simply negotiate a short-term solution. Myers & Eichelberg always strives to provide our clients with an agreeable long-term fix that will allow them to keep their house until they are ready to move.
Above all, the ME Law Firm is not interested in an receiving an upfront fee for a year only to sell you a bankruptcy or a short sale. Instead, we want to aggressively defend your foreclosure and, if need be, to take it to trial. Our experience and innovative approach to foreclosure law allows us to provide you a vigorous yet economical defense.
Our goal is to keep you in your home and we want you to stay right where you are. We will review every possible approach to help you and your family enjoy the peace of mind that comes along with knowing your home is secure from irresponsible creditors.
