Tampa, FL (PRWEB) November 15, 2010
Two prominent foreclosure attorneys, each of whom handle several hundred foreclosure lawsuits, are joining forces to put on a free foreclosure seminar for Florida homeowners.
Mark Stopa, Esq. of Stopa Law Firm and Matthew Weidner, Esq. of The Law Offices of Matthew Weidner, P.A. are conducting the free seminar on Saturday, November 20, 2010 at the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa, Florida. Mr. Stopa and Mr. Weidner intend to speak about a myriad of foreclosure-related topics, including loan modifications, strategic default, short sales, bankruptcy, and other “hot button” foreclosure issues.
Mr. Stopa, whose Stopa Law Firm is sponsoring the event, envisions the seminar as a way for Florida homeowners to learn about foreclosure-related issues from the perspective of a foreclosure defense attorney.
“There is so much misinformation out there,” said Mr. Stopa. “I’ve seen banks hold foreclosure seminars, and even some realtors, and I’m concerned that many Florida homeowners are unaware of the legal rights they enjoy or how the foreclosure process actually works.”
“It sounds hard to believe,” continued Mr. Stopa, “but banks are often the ones that cause this misinformation by actively misleading homeowners. Many homeowners think they can trust the banks, and they don’t retain counsel, so they don’t realize what’s actually going on until it’s too late.”
Mr. Weidner views the seminar as a way for homeowners to exchange stories, support each other, and seek widespread change in the foreclosure process. “The American people have become too passive in the foreclosure crisis,” said Mr. Weidner. “This seminar gives all of us a chance to ensure that our voices are heard.”
The seminar will begin in Ballroom “A” of the Tampa Convention Center at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, November 20, 2010 and will proceed until late afternoon. Ballroom “A” seats 700 people, and it is anticipated that homeowners from all across Florida will attend.
