A: Realistically to provide you with meaningful advice and determine what your options are more information and an in person consultation will be necessary. I am not a legal malpractice attorney, so I cannot comment in that area of the law. However, my practice includes, but is not limited to mortgage foreclosure defense, including tax lien foreclosure and negotiation, and bankruptcy. You need to act fast to consult with an attorney who can tell you what your options are in a realistic fashion, but more facts are required to know that. Good luck.
