LSNV News
         LSNV Provides Comprehensive Foreclosure Assistance

LSNV's Foreclosure Legal Assistance Project is designed to provide holistic legal assistance for those who are facing foreclosure on their homes. Northern Virginia has experienced some of the highest rates of foreclosure in the nation. In response to this crisis, LSNV’s Foreclosure Legal Assistance Project provides legal advice and housing counseling to low-income homeowners facing foreclosure. Traditional housing counseling programs typically do not provide legal advice to clients, and legal services organizations generally focus on the legal aspects of foreclosure. By contrast, LSNV offers services that address the full range of a client’s needs. In addition to assistance with the foreclosure itself, LSNV also offers clients services addressing related issues such as public benefits and employment disputesand bankruptcy. Potential clients seeking to make an appointment with the Foreclosure Legal Assistance Project (FLAP) should call LSNV at (703) 778-6800.



Our Clients

Jake is an 11 year old child with a history of severe anxiety. Over a period of time, his behavior at school became increasingly erratic and hard to control. School officials removed him from school and advised his mother that he would have to receive his educational services at home. LSNV investigated the matter and ascertained that the school division's action in removing Jake from school violated his rights under federal and state disability laws. In addition, Jake had been subjected to illegal restraint and seclusion at school, which was a factor in the escalation of behavior issues. Following LSNV's demand for immediate reinstatement to a safe and appropriate public school, the school division re-admitted Jake to school, and he is now performing well at a regular middle school.
