A new foreclosure defense attorney is on the block in Massachusetts. In fact, there's a whole crop of them, with the nation's top law school branching out to deal with the local foreclosure issue.

The Legal Services Center of Harvard Law School officially launched a new anti-foreclosure and eviction defense program to focus on homeowners and renters in the Mattapan neighborhood. The Boston community was hit hard by the post-2008 foreclosure crisis.

As for the services offered to homeowners, the Bay State Banner says:

“Legal assistance includes review of mortgage documents for predatory characteristics, loan modification counteroffers, assistance with loan modification principal reduction offers, and representation to defend against post-foreclosure eviction proceedings.”
