How Can We Help

The Law Office of Ronald D. Weiss, P.C. Helps With Consultations and Representation in the Areas of Bankruptcy Law, Foreclosure Defense, and Mortgage Modification.

We can initially engage in a free phone and/or office consultation as to a potential client’s legal options. You can obtain a free consultation by calling us, or by filling out and sending via e-mail the form attached to this website (see link below). If we can help you, we would be available to meet with you at our Melville, Long Island law office and further discuss with you your situation.

Our consultations are free, the advice may be invaluable.

If you decide to retain us we would review with you in detail your circumstances and the documents that apply to your situation. Based on such information we would prepare legal documents for your case for your review at a follow up visit. After your review and approval of such documents we would be able to file such documents with the court and initiate our legal representation. In most cases we represent a client throughout a matter for a reasonable flat fee that is quoted to the client prior to our representation.

The Law Office of Ronald D. Weiss, P.C. consults with and represents individuals and businesses undergoing financial hardship in the following areas:

Bankruptcy Solutions

Bankruptcy Solutions utilize federal bankruptcy laws and courts to immediately protect individuals and businesses from their creditors and to eliminate debt in Chapter 7  or to reorganize debt under both Chapter 13  (primarily used for individuals) and Chapter 11 (primarily used by businesses). We often use Bankruptcy Solutions when our clients are overwhelmed by unsecured debts such as credit cards, medical bills and personal loans and/or need time to cure secured debts such as mortgage and car loan arrears. The automatic stay, which stops all creditor activities including bank restraints, garnishments, and foreclosure sales goes into effect immediately upon the filing of a bankruptcy case. Bankruptcy Solutions are often the most certain and efficient method to resolve problematic debt and to eventually restore our client’s financial well-being and credit.

Foreclosure Solutions

Foreclosure Solutions utilize the laws and courts of the State of New York to engage in Foreclosure Defense which protects a client and their home from foreclosure litigation by their mortgage holder through answers, discovery, conferences, and opposition to motions. Orders to Show Cause give our clients emergency relief in the state court system. We also often use Bankruptcy as a Foreclosure Solution, to immediately stop foreclosure sales and other litigation against our client where our client can potentially cure their debt over time. Foreclosure Solutions are intended to provide our clients with time and leverage in their foreclosure situation so as to give our clients a greater likelihood of resolving their mortgage difficulties.

Modification & Negotiation Solutions

Modification & Negotiation Solutions are direct negotiations with a client’s creditors to reduce and extend debts such as mortgage debt, credit card debt and tax debtMortgage Modifications allow us to resolve our client’s mortgage loan arrears while seeking to restructure the note to allow for improved payment terms. Other methods of mortgage negotiations involve Short Sales and Voluntary Sales and Refinancing to Stop Foreclosure, which allow a homeowner to engage in an agreed upon “short payoff” to the lender. Credit Card Settlements are negotiated agreements with the client’s unsecured creditors to give a drastically reduced lump sum to settle past due credit card debt.  Modification and Negotiation Solutions are intended to give our clients a negotiating advantage which drastically improves their chances of obtaining a satisfactory modification agreement or other negotiated settlement with their creditors.

Landlord-Tenant Defense

Landlord-Tenant Defense is usually in the local Landlord Tenant Courts and is often necessary if a house is lost to foreclosure and more time is needed by the former homeowner before they need to vacate the house. Also, commercial tenants often are in need of representation where they are struggling to avoid eviction.

Litigation Defense

Litigation  Defense is more general defense of our clients in the state court system against various collection actions, including litigation over credit cards, personal loans, business loans and other obligations.
