What a Mortgage Lender Wants You To Know About Credit

Guest post by Salina Tornabene, mortgage loan officer with Guild Mortgage

There are subjects rarely taught in schools that indeed, shape our future as we venture into the “real world.” “Credit 101” isn’t covered in our educational system and in the end, albeit an ugly truth, credit has the potential to define our lives. It certainly costs more money to have no or bad credit than to maneuver through your financial world with good credit.

I thought I would break it down just a bit so – so the mystery is dispelled.

What a Mortgage Lender Wants You To Know About Credit

Here are some credit basics you should know.

How to Do A Court Hearing For Your Divorce

Hospitals do not let people show up and do medical procedures on their kids.  If you are closing on a house, your mortgage company will not let you do your own title search; you have to hire a title insurance company to do it.  You cannot drive a car or own certain weapons without training and a license.

But guess what you can do?  Waltz into court and handle the hearing on your divorce without any training much less a license to practice law.  This is something people with years of education and training find challenging.  I am tempted to say, “Good luck with that.”

Except a huge percentage of people do have to do this in order to protect their family, finances and future. Continue reading “How to Do A Court Hearing For Your Divorce”

The Modern Legal Practice: Why You CAN Afford an Attorney

On May 11, 2018, I attended a seminar on Modern Legal Representation.

The AMAZING news is that Andersen Law PC has been practicing these techniques from the day we opened our doors, and I used many of these practices for years before opening the firm.  A few attorneys are trying these techniques of late. Few if any have been doing all of them as long and as consistently as I have.

I think we have modern representation down to a science and know how to make it work for our clients at Andersen Law PC. After years of doing this type of practice, what seems new and different to other attorneys is actually familiar, routine and downright comfortable for us.  We know what works, what does not work, and how to use modern representation techniques to best benefit you. For unbundled representation and some of the types of representation below, the retainer is a lot smaller than you would think.

Here are some aspects of our firm that can save you thousands of dollars as opposed to those traditional firms with huge retainers:
