Mineola, NY - July 24, 2018 - As a free community service to help those fearful of losing their homes, the Nassau County Bar Association offers Free Legal Mortgage Foreclosure Consultation Clinics. Held twice a month to meet the demand, the next two clinics are scheduled for Monday, August 6 and Monday, August 20, 2018, 3 - 6 p.m., at the Nassau County Bar Association, located on 15th Street at the corner of West Street in Mineola, two blocks south of the bus and train stations.
NCBA volunteer attorneys meet one-on-one with homeowners to discuss their particular situation. Resources and agencies are available immediately in the same room for additional help for mortgage modifications, loan restructuring, bankruptcy questions and financial planning. Currently, each clinic held twice a month averages 30 - 40 homeowners, signifying that foreclosure continues to be prevalent in Nassau.
