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

However, the financial side of things still seemed to keep that past linked, which makes this an enormous weight lifted. I just can't believe the impact it's made on my outlook with...everything.I will be sure to keep your business cards handy to distribute along with highly favorable words of recommendation should the needs arise.Thank you again for your time and professional guidance.”

    Christine and John

  • Tom was the most professional.

    “I researched 3 attorneys before signing with the Hensel Law Office for my bankruptcy proceedings. Tom was the most professional and he explained all of my questions without trying to make a quick buck on me. I would recommend Hensel Law Office to my friends or family going through a similar difficult situation.”

    Jerry

  • Mr. Hensel walked me through every step.

    “I would highly recommend the Hensel Law Office!! Mr. Hensel walked me through every step, got my garnishments stopped very quickly (even got garnished wages returned to me!) and told me what to expect along the way. He answered all of my questions in a very timely manner- no matter what time I sent an email or gave him a phone call. Also, I felt his price was very reasonable compared to some of the other places that I called. Mr. Hensel answered plenty of questions that I had before I even became a client.”

    Carl

  • Professional, competent, empathetic attorney.

    “My husband and I were forced into a position to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. We were devastated and mortified that we had to choose that route, but Tom eased our stress about the filing and court hearing process, as he thoroughly explained what Chapter 7 entails, as well as exactly what to expect during and after the filing process; he was accurate on each point that he advised us on. Tom also kept in frequent contact with us and responded quickly to any questions or concerns that we had while we worked with him. Tom's expertise and tact was invaluable for us, and we will absolutely recommend him to any of our friends and relatives that may find themselves in similar positions to ours. Thank you, Tom, for your dedicated help during this process.”
