where the court finds in your favor but the results don’t match the outlay
Yes!! There is a saying in legal circles.. 'lawyers will fight for your principals to the bottoms of your pocket'. Sad but true and learned from a lived experience.. so don't go hunting down another lawyer until you know exactly why the administrative ruling went the way it did. Your lawyer isn't just giving up bc they're feeling lazy.. there is a reason and you need to find out exactly what it is and where you stand.
ps. :sorry: not all lawyers are like the saying... but it's good to remember that before considering litigation.
As for your house - absolutely agree with @IceQueencop - first stop is the bank! There are so many options that will keep you in your home aside from foreclosure so explore them all.
