Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) April 09, 2013
Laraine Ryan became of counsel to the legal network at Consumer Attorney Services in April to help more Delaware homeowners avoid foreclosure. Consumer Attorney Services appointed Ryan of counsel to their nationwide foreclosure defense team because of her tremendous experience as an attorney, having practiced law for 29 years.
Ryan owns a general practice in Delaware, and works on cases pertaining to foreclosure defense, bankruptcy, debt settlement, immigration and nationality law. She worked at three law firms in California before deciding to open her own practice in Delaware in 1994.
Ryan first attended school at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill where she received a Bachelor of Arts. Later, she pursued law school in California at Pepperdine University School of Law, and received her Juris Doctor. She is licensed to practice law in Delaware and California.
Consumer Attorney Services seeks to add experienced attorneys, like Ryan, to their national foreclosure defense team in order to address rising foreclosure activity in 2013.
According to a March 2013 RealtyTrac report, 1.5 million U.S. properties were actively in the foreclosure process or bank-owned in the first quarter of 2013. This is a 9% increase from the first quarter of 2012. RealtyTrac attributes the annual increase in foreclosure inventory at a national level to the 59 percent jump in pre-foreclosure inventory.
The vice president at RealtyTrac, Daren Blomquist, speculated as to the cause of the 2013 foreclosure inventory increase, “Delinquent loans that fell into a deep sleep after the robo-signing controversy in late 2010 are gradually coming out of hibernation following the finalization of the national mortgage settlement in April 2012.”
Consumer Attorney Services trusts their addition of Laraine Ryan will help more homeowners in Delaware avoid foreclosure. Consumer Attorney Services plans to continue fortifying their national foreclosure defense team to ensure homeowners across the country will have access to the legal representation they desperately require.
