Help is Here.
Our lawyers help families like yours save their home from foreclosure. We enter appearances in court to defend the foreclosure. While the sale process is delayed, we work to save your home with the bank. When necessary, we sue to protect your rights.
Friendly, Smart Lawyers
Our firm hires friendly lawyers who graduated at the tops of their classes. Firm owners Troy Doucet and Andy Gerling graduated from Capital Law School with high honors. They, and their team of attorneys, fight everyday for people like you.
Troy started our foreclosure defense law firm in Columbus immediately after law school, and has grow it into the force it is today with friend and fellow classmate, Andy Gerling. With a team of smart and caring Ohio foreclosure lawyers, Doucet & Associates Co., L.P.A. is known for fighting hard and getting results that few others can match.
Troy worked in the mortgage industry before becoming a lawyer. He also experienced foreclosure first hand when his business collapsed in 2005. That experience prompted him to go to law school and dedicate his legal career to helping people. You can read his story here.
We have been helping people in foreclosure for years. Troy Doucet got his start in the mortgage industry before becoming a lawyer. He has published three legal books, including "23 Legal Defenses to Foreclosure: How to Beat the Bank." Troy regularly speaks on consumer law and consults nationally with other lawyers.
We know what gets results for our clients. The key is hard work, hiring very smart lawyers, and thinking several moves ahead of the other side.
The banks hire very expensive lawyers to fight to take your home. That is why we fight back. We have learned that developing a reputation for hard work and going the extra mile makes a difference.
We believe we regularly get deals that other lawyers cannot obtain. This is because the other side knows we will go to the Supreme Court if necessary for each and every one of our clients. That kind of reputation means good deals for our clients.
