Michigan Bankruptcy Attorney Personalized & Skilled Representation

Michigan Foreclosure Lawyer

Defending Against Foreclosure in Michigan

Financial problems can be caused by many different situations, including the loss of a job, a divorce or an unexpected health crisis. You can also get into financial trouble by using too many high-interest credit cards or simply spending more than you make. Overwhelming debts can have many undesirable consequences, such as creditor harassment, lawsuits and the repossession of your personal property. If you are a homeowner and can no longer make your mortgage payments, you may even lose your home through foreclosure.

Consulting a bankruptcy attorney is the best way to find out about your options under Michigan foreclosure law. A lawyer can review your entire financial situation and give you valuable advice regarding your mortgage. My firm, Hensel Law Office, PLLC, has represented clients in financial trouble for over 12 years. I know how upsetting it can be when you can no longer pay your bills and are facing foreclosure.

When I work with clients, I make sure they understand their rights and provide personalized service when addressing their debt problems. If filing for bankruptcy is the best solution, I will manage every aspect of your case.

Ways to Prevent Foreclosure

In Michigan, a lender can start foreclosure proceedings through either filing a lawsuit or competing procedures outside of court. However, even if the foreclosure process has started, you have several options available to save your home.

Even if your financial situation is bleak, there can by several ways to prevent a foreclosure, including:

  • Loan modification
  • Deed in lieu
  • Strategic default
  • Short sale
  • Filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy

  • Tom Hensel is definitely the right attorney to call!

    “I was referred to Tom Hensel by a friend. My first impression was not only was Tom professional but he's so kind and caring too. He helped my husband and I through an embarrassing, scary situation and definitely made it more positive one. He guided us through our options and helped us make the right decision for us which ended up being a chapter 7 bankruptcy. Tom was so knowledgeable and helped us throughout the whole process. He never once made us feel uncomfortable or dumb when we had questions. He was also very easy to get a hold of when questions would come up and would always return our calls and emails promptly. I strongly recommend Tom to anyone going through this kind of financial nightmare. Do yourselves a favor and call him right away. He will help you get on the right path again. Our only mistake was waiting so long to call him!! When we in court waiting our turn all the other attorneys referred to their clients as "The debtors" Tom on the other hand acknowledged us by our names. Little things mean a lot and that left a lasting impression with us. Tom Thank You again for all your help!!”
