June 28/Philadelphia: Mortgage Foreclosure Defense for Low-Income Clients: Ethical Considerations #probono #MCLE

This seminar is appropriate for attorneys that work in mortgage foreclosure defense or have completed
Philadelphia VIP’s Mortgage Foreclosure Negotiation or Litigation trainings. In the first half hour we will
discuss updates and changes to the Residential Mortgage Foreclosure Diversion program, including new
federal modification options, as well as how to best advise clients who are not able to remain in their homes.
After this brief refresher, we will move into an hour ethics discussion. This will include an interactive poverty
simulation, as well as a discussion on the ethics of advising low-income clients on how best to handle their
mortgage foreclosure matter. We will address the difficult question of guiding clients who want to remain in
their homes despite serious affordability or safety concerns as well as other challenging situations.
This seminar will be taught by Bob Lukens, Staff Attorney at Community Legal Services and Consultant to
the Office of Housing and Community Development, Stefanie Seldin, Managing Attorney at VIP, and
Susan Wysor Nguema, Homeownership Advocate at VIP.
