M Filmore StoryCancer sufferer’s home saved with help from pro bono lawyer found by GLSP

Ms. Filmore was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer and had to have surgery and chemotherapy treatments quickly. She could not work and fell behind on her mortgage payments and other bills. Three creditors got judgments against her, even though she was trying to make payments. But when her mortgage company notified her that her home would be foreclosed if she didn’t make a payment immediately, Ms. Brown contacted Georgia Legal Services Program. Our Albany office found a private attorney to take the case. The pro bono lawyer filed for bankruptcy for Ms. Filmore and was able to save her home, get her mortgage modified and help her vacate some of the judgments against her for the other bills. Her expenses are now more manageable as she continues to receive treatment for her cancer.
