Scheduling a Consult with Neil Garfield

So many people have asked questions about the CONSULT that I decided to make a blog article about it to avoid answering the same questions repeatedly.

*
ONLY A COURT ORDER ISSUED BY A STATE OR FEDERAL COURT CAN STOP A FORECLOSURE SALE. THIS IS USUALLY DONE BY PETITION FOR TRO OR BY FILING A PETITION FOR BANKRUPTCY (if you qualify). CONSULT WITH LOCAL COUNSEL ON ALL MATTERS.
*
Failure to challenge the foreclosure in a court of competent jurisdiction will ordinarily result in a sale of your property.
*
Neither this email nor any work performed including any CONSULT should be taken as a substitute for advice from a licensed attorney in your jurisdiction. Anything we prepare must be filed by you. Any deadlines, at this point, are your responsibility. We are not and cannot agree to be your attorney of record nor appear for you in arguing any cause before any court. Sales can also be stopped by the party who filed the notice but it is unwise to rely upon their representation that they have canceled the sale.

You can directly order a CONSULT with Neil Garfield with or without document reviews and analysis. A consult with review of documents is a PDR – Preliminary Document Review.
  1. If you only want a consult without review of specific documents, click the link for ordering and paying for the CONSULT.
  2. You will be directed to fill out at least some information concerning your identity and your location as well as the location of the property. We must know your timezone in order to schedule the CONSULT.
  3. That will take you to Acuity Scheduling in which you can select the time and date of the Consult. Just follow the instructions and select the time and date you want the Consult.
  4. This will automatically put the CONSULT on my Calendar.
  5. It will also automatically send me an email notifying me that you have paid for a consult and you have scheduled the consult.
  6. I will set up a recorded CONSULT on our conference bridge FreeConference.com.
  7. You will receive a confirmation email inviting you to participate in the CONSULT.
    1. The email invitation will contain the CALL IN NUMBER which most likely be 605-475-6333.
    2. The email invitation will contain the ACCESS NUMBER you must enter to join the CONSULT. The ACCESS NUMBER is unique for each CONSULT to maintain confidentiality and privacy.
  8. Having a local attorney on the call is ordinarily helpful for homeowners or borrowers.
  9. Our Preliminary Document Review (PDR) includes a 30 minute CONSULT. It comes in three flavors, each with increasing levels of analysis and scope of review.
    1. Ordinarily it is at least advisable to order, at a minimum, the PDR Basic. We usually suggest ordering the PDR PLUS which includes more review and analysis prior to the CONSULT.
      1. The PDR Basic is designed for us to look at one page or a couple of pages of documents and provide guidance on the content of those pages and perhaps suggest some strategies or tactics that could be employed. 30 minutes of recorded CONSULT is included.
      2. The PDR PLUS is designed for us to look at recorded documents in the chain of title and some documents from either pending court action or recent notices and correspondence. Here our suggestions for strategies and tactics are more definite because we know more about your case. 30 minutes of recorded CONSULT is included.
      3. The PDR PREMIUM is designed to be a short-term abbreviated substitute for a thorough Case Analysis including all relevant documents including documents in chain of title, documents filed in court(s), notices, forensic reports, correspondence and other documents uploaded to our ftp server on Box.com. 45 minutes of recorded CONSULT is included.
    2. If time is of the essence and specific direction and guidance is requested then it is advisable to first order our TERA if you don’t already have a full title analysis with copies of the documentation.
    3. If you do have the title analysis with copies of the recorded documentation in your chain of title and you have pending court proceeding it is advisable to order the PDR PREMIUM.

KEEP IN MIND: Assuming the technology at freeconference.com works properly which is nearly always the case, the CONSULT will be recorded in its entirety. You will receive the link and most likely the audio file itself as an attachment to an email from us. Most people elect to have it transcribed so they can cut and paste what was said or dictated by me. For my dictation and transcription I use www.speakwrite.com but you can use any service or person of your choosing.
*
The reason I mention this is that some people waste their time on the CONSULT with asking me to repeat things during my “brain dump.” That is not necessary if the consult is recorded. Your consult is set for recording.

You will be receiving an invitation from our conference bridge service provider, www.freeconference.com to attend the conference. Please accept the invitation to confirm the date and time.
