AmStar CLE Prepares Florida Lawyers for Growing Demands in Foreclosure Defense

Predicted Increase in Florida Foreclosures in 2010 Prompts Attorneys to Add Foreclosure Defense to Their Practices

Jan 18, 2010, 11:11 ET from AmStar Litigation Support

SARASOTA, Fla., Jan. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- One in 17 homes fell into foreclosure in Florida in 2009, giving the Sunshine State the dubious distinction of having the second-highest number of foreclosure filings in the country, according to market researcher RealtyTrac. The trend does not appear to be fading in 2010, either. Analysts believe unemployment and adjustable rate mortgages scheduled to recast this year will push a massive supply of delinquent loans into the foreclosure process. As more Florida homeowners face the prospect of losing their homes, the expertise of attorneys skilled in foreclosure defense remains in high demand. That is why a growing number of attorneys and law firms are finding it advantageous to add foreclosure defense to their practices.
