AmStar Prepares Florida Lawyers for Foreclosure Defense

Florida was hit hard by foreclosures in 2009, and a predicted increase in foreclosures in 2010 has prompted many attorneys to add foreclosure defense to their practices, according to Sarasota, Florida-based ""AmStar Litigation Support"":AmStar Prepares Florida Lawyers for Foreclosure Defense, a provider of continuing education and legal process outsourcing (LPO).


In 2009, the Sunshine State had the second-highest number of foreclosure filings in the country, according to market researcher RealtyTrac, and it doesn't appear that this trend will fade in 2010. Analysts believe unemployment and adjustable rate mortgages scheduled to recast this year will push a massive supply of delinquent loans into the foreclosure process.

An increasing number of Florida homeowners face the prospect of losing their homes, and as a result, AmStar says the expertise of attorneys skilled in foreclosure defense remains in high demand. As a provider of continuing legal education and LPO, AmStar is responding to this increased demand with an expanded course schedule for its foreclosure defense seminar.

The seminar will be offered in seven Florida cities from January through March 2010 and is designed to provide attorneys with the fundamental knowledge and resources in foreclosure defense law. Topics of the seminar will include ethics, securitization, pleading and procedure, substantive mortgage loan law, and loan auditing.
