Philip Kramer Weighs in on New NBC Nightly News Report on Foreclosure Crisis

Kramer & Kaslow

NBC Nightly News is running a multi-part series detailing the foreclosure crisis in America ( The series examines how the mortgage crisis began, its effect on homeowners, and why, according to NBC, it is worsening, not getting better. The series begins with a vignette about Garrett and Laura Holmes of Vermont and tells the story of how the couple almost lost their home by seeking help through the government HAMP program.

Philip Kramer, a well-known consolidated plaintive litigation attorney who is suing a number of lenders on behalf of aggrieved homeowners observes, “The Nightly News series demonstrates how deeply flawed current system is. Without resorting to the courts, it is very, very difficult for a homeowner to get a fair shake.”
