Foreclosure Defense

Got Debt? by Sarah Poriss

The new edition has just been released …. because Debt goes on.

How would you respond if a collection agent told you, “You know, debt never really goes away.”

From that conversation, Attorney Sarah Poriss realized you just can’t make this stuff up, and started writing down everything she saw happen while helping hard-working Americans with their money problems. Got Debt? Dispatches from the Front Lines of America’s Financial Crisis examines the way the average person relates to money, how they respond when in debt, and how our society treats those who struggle to pay their bills.

Connecting Cinco de Mayo to foreclosure, Dickens to debtor’s prisons, and credit scores to dandruff shampoo, Poriss guides you through the psyche of the financially-stressed American, giving us a new perspective on what it means to have “good credit” or to be a “dead beat.”

The go to person for foreclosure defense
I'm an attorney in the Hartford area. I was recently appointed as pro bono counsel on a foreclosure case. My client had 24 hours before he was going to be wrongfully thrown out of his house. I immediately reached out to Sarah and she provided me with advice and motions. After I filed them, the lawyers for the bank settled the case in a manner that was fair to my client preventing him from being homeless. Everyone knows that Sarah is the go to person for foreclosure defense but they should also know she is a first rate human who truly tries to help people.

The BEST in her field
Attorney Poriss is a top notch Attorney who is the BEST in her field. Throughout the process of 4 years of dealing with our mortgage company and then throughout foreclosure she has been up front and on top of everything. She is honest and somone who loves helping people in a time of need. You cannot go wrong hiring her on. In the beginning it was advice without cost and she told us she would let us know when she needed to jump in, which she did. Total Honest, Professional, is what she is.

Truly wants to help people
Attorney Poriss is very attentive and truly wants to help people. I reached out on Wednesday afternoon and the next morning I was having a phone consultation with her. She was thorough and I did not feel rushed during the call. She had advice that I had not been given before and she eased my anxiety over the situation. Do not ever hesitate to call her if you are in a crisis.

No question is too small for her or one of her amazing team to answer for you. I couldn't recommend Attorney Poriss and her staff highly enough. Her hard work and dedication has changed my family's life. My only regret is that I couldn't give her more than a 5 star recommendation. Wishing her and her staff much continued success.

Sarah and her team were EXCELLENT! I was in the most stressful situation with my home. I was worried that my home was gonna go into foreclosure. But when I reached out to Sarah, she prevented that from happening! After so many denials applying for loan modification, I almost gave up. Sarah and her team helped me through the process and took care of everything for me. Sarah made me feel like everything is going to be OK. They did what I hired them for and it all worked out! Sarah and her team are very professional, thoughtful, and offers any guidance. I highly recommend Sarah and her team!

OUTSTANDING
An attorney whom I respected a great deal referred me to Sarah for specific issues I was having with unfair debt/collections/foreclosure. Her ability to clearly explain the process and expectations along with her support “team” including Donna Convicer literally allowed my wife and I to sleep at night. Anyone experiencing problems in todays economic uncertainty (and there are many) should not allow themselves to be bullied or intimidated when making important financial decisions by collections attorneys. Do yourself a huge favor and speak to her. You will never regret it. The outcome of our case was exactly what we had hoped for.Thank You Sarah, Donna and team for getting our life back !.Honesty and Integrity to spare !!!

I reached out to Sarah regarding a lender-side foreclosure case. She politely declined but provided me with a referral. While I haven’t used her professional services personally, the fact that she wrote back and provided a recommendation for another attorney indicates to me that she is responsive and professional.
