then found 5 yrs. later the will that named be me as the executor of the will and all the residuals . i was paying
my share of the city taxes but they were not paying there's , one brother sighed his share over and another brother died which left 2 brothers as co owners , but they city would not transfer sole ownership to me until
all back taxes were paid up , now the back taxes are around $12.000 and the city will sell the property if i don't come up with the money . I am a disabled vet and and my credit rating is no good lawyer but can't afford much what can I do?
Before entering Real Estate, I practiced law as a litigator in some major firms in the greater Phila. area.....in larger firms, pro bono work was encouraged (I don't know how feasible it would be for a small firm to do very much pro bono work, as a practical matter).
One firm I used to practice at -- Stradley Ronon -- is based in Philadelphia but has a Malvern satellite office. I recall that several years ago when I worked there, there were a number of attorneys working there who specialized in real estate law. I have every expectation that the office still employs some wonderful real estate lawyers.
Feel free to look up their bios on line (I believe the website is either http://www.Stradley.com or http://www.StradleyRonon.com...sorry it's been a while and I can't remember:) Give them a call....if, for some reason, they can't help you, they very well may know someone who can!
Also, feel free to call me at 610.324.5240 and I can give you a name or two of lawyers that I can heartily recommend.
Once again, good luck on such a worthwhile endeavor!

That would be great if we could team up and figure out solutions on how to help the distressed homeowners. For example, I was able to find an excellent pro bono lawyer in FL for a friend who was in foreclosure. The loan my friend has is a predatory loan, and the lawyer has managed to stave off foreclosure for the passed 6 months. She told him that he might even be able to keep his house if he wins the court case.
I'm hoping that if I can find an excellent lawyer like that in the PA then it wouldn't be difficult to setup some kind of non-profit. Your backgroud seems like it would be very helpful also.
Please call me at 917-301-2333 in the evenings or email me at email@example.com
There are already a number of non-profits that do this. You should visit the website http://www.phfa.org and you will find help for homeowners there.
I have been working with homeowners in distress and trying to help them find solutions to their problems so that they can stay in their homes. Would you like to team up? There are a lot of things to do before getting to the legal part of the issue. Then, perhaps we can find a few different people who will step up to the plate for us.
