Mortgage Modification

For many people, owning their own home is a lifelong dream and one of the most significant purchases they will ever make. But what if you fall behind on your mortgage payments?

Home foreclosure is increasingly common in these tough economic times.

However, there is hope. Our attorneys can assist with mortgage modifications for both primary homes and investment properties.

Protecting Your Estate through Probate

Probate is the process of proving a last will and testament, which means verifying that the will is legal and the deceased person’s intentions are carried out. Probate also occurs when there is no will and a probate court must decide how to distribute the assets of the deceased’s estate to his or her loved ones. Careful planning helps avoid your estate going through the probate process. If you are an heir, and a will is in question, engaging a probate attorney helps protect your interests in the estate.

Real Estate Litigation

Fortunately, many individuals and companies never need a real estate litigation attorney, but if you do need one, you will want the absolute best.

Real estate litigation involves high stakes, whether it is a landlord-tenant dispute, zoning issues, boundary issues, title or lien issues, or a wide array of other real estate related issues. These disputes can get messy and extremely technical, so you need an attorney with intimate knowledge of property law.

We have extensive experience in aggressively representing our clients to resolve these disputes in their favor through negotiation, or in court when necessary.

Other Practice Areas

The lawyers at Perry G. Gruman, P.A. can provide you with legal advice and representation in a wide array of other practice areas that include: family law, debt management, debt collection, student loans, guardianships, asset protection, contract disputes, business disputes, and forming corporations.
Frequent family law issues are related to child custody and support, divorce, domestic violence, father’s rights, marital property rights, paternity, post-nuptial agreements, pre-nuptial agreements property settlements, separation agreements, spousal support, and visitation rights.
All of these legal issues can be very stressful and time consuming. You need an attorney you can trust to listen to the details of your specific situation without judgment and provide the knowledgeable, experienced local counsel you need.

Debunking Myths Around Hiring An Attorney

I have a real estate broker so I don’t need a lawyer.

A real estate broker is paid to close deals, not to look out for your interests.

They are not qualified to offer legal advice and may not be too concerned about the finer details of your contract.

Legal advice from an experienced real estate attorney protects your interests and helps avoid significant issues down the road.

If I file for bankruptcy, I will loose everything.

False! You’re likely to keep a lot of your possessions.

The vast majority of chapter 7 bankruptcy cases are no-asset cases, meaning the debtor gives up no possessions.

You can save basic assets, called exemptions, necessary for day-to-day life.

For possessions that aren’t covered under exemptions, creditors may not want them. Due to age, how they may be encumbered with liens, or their value vs. the cost of retrieving them.

Hiring a bankruptcy attorney is critical when protecting your assets in bankruptcy.

Only wealthy people need a living trust.

Not True! The less you have, the more important it is to protect it. A living trust protects your assets and family during your disability and after your death.

Living trust s protect your estate from scams, creditors, divorce, predators, family legal disputes, taxes, bad decisions, and far more.

Most importantly, a living trust with a disability plan protects you from abuse during the years of long-term care.

The question is not how much you have, but rather how much do you love your family? When you love your family and want to protect them, you need a living trust.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I hire an attorney to help with a real estate purchase or sale?

A real estate attorney can help you manage all the complexities of the transaction. They can conduct deed and title reviews, review and explain documents, and protect your legal interests to avoid costly mistakes or unnecessary delays.

I feel my parent was manipulated into excluding his children from his will, is there anything we can do?

Yes, you can file an action to challenge a will. Our experienced probate attorneys can help you evaluate the strength of your case and negotiate prior to engaging in litigation, and if necessary, represent you in any litigation.

So many debt collectors call me since being injured, should I file for bankruptcy?

Bankruptcy is a complicated process and the decisions of whether and when to file needs to be carefully analyzed. For example, if you have a personal injury lawsuit pending, any awarded damages may need to be paid to your creditors in the bankruptcy. However, often bankruptcy will provide the quickest path to a fresh start. Our experienced bankruptcy attorneys can help you plan the very important decision of filing for bankruptcy protection.
