The Alabama State Bar and Legal Services Alabama have joined to form a unique partnership with a plan to help Alabama homeowners remain in their homes.

Both groups announced a public awareness and education campaign today.  If you’re facing foreclosure, you can call a toll-free hotline (1-877-393-2333) and get free legal advice.  You’ll be connected with a legal aid attorney who will advise you about the various stages of the foreclosure process.  Such assistance can take the form of limited representation, negotiation or litigation, if necessary.

“Help is available.  Homeowners need to know there are options, but the key to a successful outcome is early intervention and I can’t stress that enough,” said Thomas J. Methvin, State Bar President-elect.  “If you are having a problem making your monthly payments and believe foreclosure is imminent, you must act now.”

The campaign will have a staggered rollout throughout the state.  However, the Huntsville/Madison County area will be targeted first because of the high number of reported foreclosures here.

“We are very concerned about people losing their homes,” said Methvin, of Montgomery.  “We are also concerned about other related effects of foreclosure such as reducing property values, creating blight with vacant and abandoned properties in neighborhoods, diminishing the local tax base which often supports important services, and straining court dockets.”

The state bar worked in cooperation with the state Broadcasters Association to produce a series of broadcast messages that will begin airing on radio and television stations in Huntsville and surrounding areas.  In addition, the bar has a public information pamphlet available that provides answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about foreclosure.

A positive manner

Several years ago my brother and sister -in-law were in a terrible car accident. My sister in-law was paralyzed from her neck down. Beasley Allen handled the case for my brother to see to it that my sister-in-law received the proper and necessary care she needed. I appreciate the attorneys and staff of Beasley Allen in handling this matter quickly and in a positive manner. Good job Beasley Allen!!
