Facing foreclosure is an overwhelming prospect. Put an experienced advocate on your side.

At Advocate Legal we offer the benefit of a high-priced litigation attorney specializing in Wrongful Foreclosure and Quiet Title without the cost.  When you need to sue your bank, mortgage servicer or trustee, when you have a title dispute over property and need to Quiet Title, partition, or force a sale, when you are having difficulty retrieving your surplus funds from the trustee after a foreclosure sale, or when you need to retain possession and avoid eviction after foreclosure, we can help you and you can afford it.

I mean to help as many people as possible and have them spend as little as possible.

Use Litigation Support to stand up to banks and fight for the justice you deserve.

The intent of Advocate Legal has always been to educate homeowners about foreclosure whether they were clients or not through free consultations and informational videos. Our challenge has always been that the cost of an attorney, even one as good as Susan, was too much for some clients to pay, especially while they also had to pay their costly mortgage. Although she wanted to provide as much help as possible to as many people as possible, many people with winnable cases had to be turned away.

The solution to this dilemma is Advocate Legal Litigation Support which allows you to become your own attorney with Susan’s help. With Litigation Support, Susan opens her computer server (think bank vault) to give you access to all her “workflows” as well as the pleadings, briefs, and templates she uses to: file a Quiet Title, get a Lis Pendens, sue for Wrongful Foreclosure and other causes of action, retrieve a surplus after a foreclosure sale, reverse a wrongful sale, and fight eviction after foreclosure. To ensure you succeed, Susan makes herself available on an as-needed basis. See How Litigation Support Works.

SUSAN M. MURPHY, ATTORNEY

Creator of Litigation Support, located in West Hollywood, California.

Susan began practicing strictly in the field of foreclosure litigation in 2010 because she was passionate about the harm that banks were doing to homeowners through the securitization of subprime mortgages acquired between 2004 and 2008 in the run-up to the mortgage crisis. She worked for two other firms that specialized in Quiet Title, Foreclosure and Eviction before forming Advocate Legal in 2013 with the help of Marketing Director Phillip Hamilton.

From the beginning, the goal of Advocate Legal was to provide free consultations and informational videos to everyone facing foreclosure, but to only take actual litigation cases where they believed they could be successful. Their founding principle was “Do God’s work and get paid.”

MY GOAL HAS ALWAYS BEEN TO BEAT THE BANKS
AND MAKE SURE YOU STAY IN YOUR HOME.

There’s a reason you’re at war with your mortgage servicer — it’s called securitization.

Securitization allowed Wall Street Firms to originate your mortgage by selling stock to investors. Since the Wall Street model of “originate and sell” did not include servicing your mortgage, the business of mortgage servicers was born and banks like Wells Fargo and Bank of America became servicers. To take more power for themselves, these servicers created a shell company named MERS and a new kind of mortgage– the MERS mortgage - that named the shell company MERS as a beneficiary.

Securitization was the cause of the financial collapse of 2008 and the MERS mortgage is the cause of the ongoing war between borrowers and servicers. Because the MERS mortgage names MERS as a fake beneficiary, it splits risk and reward. The investor, your actual beneficiary, gets no reward from foreclosure, only the risk. The mortgage servicer, represented by MERS the fake beneficiary, has no risk by foreclosure but only reward. This is why it feels like your servicer wants you to fail; because they do.

Become your own attorney, but do it with our help.

Client Testimonials

FIGHT THE BANK FOR YOUR HOME

You can do it. Let us help.

A lawless battleground was created when the mortgage servicing business sprang up to service mortgage debt on behalf of real estate investment trusts. These servicing companies promote the fiction that you are their client, that they want to help you avoid foreclosure, but the opposite is true. You are an obstacle between them and their foreclosure fees. You are not their client.  

Once your mortgage servicer pushes you into foreclosure, there’s a gauntlet of other bad guys eager to profit from your distress.  Clients have come to Advocate Legal after spending thousands of dollars on attorneys and paralegals with only a horror story to show for it. Sometimes a weak complaint was filed to “scare the bank” with no plan to follow through. Sometimes no complaint was filed at all. Many times clients complained they were sure their attorney was working for the bank and we believed them.

No good foreclosure attorney will advise you to stop paying the bank and start paying them, but this is also a story we constantly hear. Neither will a good foreclosure attorney take a case “on contingency” since foreclosure rarely results in large financial payoffs that the attorney can take a piece of.  In the best case, a foreclosure attorney that takes a case on contingency is naïve or new. They may also plan to do very little work. In the worst case, they may plan to profit from your foreclosure.

Advocate Legal is proud to serve the West Hollywood and Greater Los Angeles area with expert legal counsel in Wrongful Foreclosure and Quiet Title issues. If you have questions about your rights, we can provide the legal guidance and support you need to move forward with your case. Reach out today to schedule a free consultation and learn how our experience can work for you.
