A free Loss Mitigation/Mortgage Modification training workshop for paralegals and new attorneys will be held at the J. Bratton Davis U.S. Bankruptcy Courthouse on Thursday, February 25, 2016 at 1:30 p.m., with broadcast by video to the Charleston courthouse for attendees in the Charleston division. A limited number of spots to attend by telephone will be offered for those located too far to travel to the Columbia or Charleston courthouses.
The one-hour program will cover best practices and tips and will be hosted by Judge Waites and presented by paralegals with experience in the loss mitigation/mortgage modification process, who have achieved a 70% success rate for their bankruptcy clients.
Those interested in attending should sign up on or before 5 p.m. on Monday, February 22, 2016, by sending an e-mail to Sarah_Kistler@scb.uscourts.gov. Questions regarding the loss mitigation/mortgage modification process and use of the DMM Portal may be submitted in advance to the same email address by the same deadline. Those who are unfamiliar with the DMM Portal may view a training video in advance at https://defaultmitigation.wistia.com/medias/nhd9q9lbh2. Much effort has been made to make this session as informative as possible, and Judge Waites encourages those who are interested in learning more about the loss mitigation/mortgage modification process in his cases to attend.
