The Coalition to Save Our Homes will present attorney Adam Deutsch of Denbeaux & Denbeaux at its meeting of Dec. 3, 2012. The location will be the Meeting Room of the Irvington Public Library at 7:30 PM.
The purpose will be to begin a joint community-legal campaign to hold banks and Wall Street accountable for the harm they have done the Irvington community by their predatory and often criminal lending policies. The government has done everything possible to rescue the banks. It has done almost nothing for the millions of distressed homeowners whose problems are solely due to predatory lending.
While the specific focus of this campaign is Irvington, it is a people’s initiative of interest to every aspect of the people’s struggle for economic justice nationwide.
Denbeaux & Denbeaux is law firm in Bergen County, New Jersey whose principal focus is consumer rights litigation. The Firm has represented more than two hundred homeowners facing foreclosure, and has brought plaintiff actions against banks, brokers, realtors, title agencies, and credit reporting agencies for injuries arising out of the mortgage crises. Since 2011 the firm has obtained dismissals of 54 foreclosure actions and has helped to modify dozens of loans.
Denbeaux & Denbeaux will join The Coalition to Save Our Homes by setting up an intake process in Irvington to interview distressed homeowners at no cost. If you need personal representation the firm can be retained. The Firm will be looking to see if there are common injuries to homeowners that may lead to a class action case on behalf of a broader group of citizens. The more people involved, the greater the likelihood that a lawsuit can be built. Please help by spreading the word.
The Coalition to Save Our Homes will reach out to other community organizations in Irvington to join in the campaign. We look forward to wide participation of homeowners, activists, labor organizations, and other grassroots people’s efforts wherever they are located.
Among other things we will hold protests at banks, marches against foreclosure, and demand real action on behalf of distressed homeowners from local, state, and federal officials. Community action will support the legal action. Legal action will support the community effort.
This is no small undertaking. It will require many people acting together. The authorities have failed the people in theforeclosure crisis. We must rescue ourselves.
