Oppenheim Law a Fort Lauderdale foreclosure firm is offering free legal services to federal employees during the government shutdown until they receive their next paycheck.

Ellen Pilelsky and Roy Oppenheim, co-founders of Oppenheim Law, announce today that due to the historic government shutdown, their firm will assist government employees and their families affected by the government shutdown with their foreclosure and housing needs, deferring payment until the government shutdown is over and government workers return to work. 

Roy Oppenheim was interviewed by WSVN Channel 7 News Miami who said:

“There are going to be a lot of folks who are now going to be facing foreclosures, they’re going to be facing evictions, they’re going to be facing the inability to close on a home,” said Oppenheim, “and what we’re going to do is, we’re going to help these folks and make sure that their rights are properly represented.”

Fort Lauderdale Foreclosure Defense Attorneys Provide Relief and Hope

Ms. Pilelsky, Managing Partner, stated that “Regardless of one’s feelings about the Wall, we, at Oppenheim Law, believe that it is our civic duty to assist those individuals and families that have patriotically chosen a career in public service.”

Simply put, payments for services rendered in defending a government workers home will be deferred, until such individuals are paid by the government. Mr. Oppenheim, a well-recognized Fort Lauderdale foreclosure attorney added, “No one really thought that the government shut down would continue so long. It now appears that a number of these folks will not be able to meet their rent and mortgage obligations due to the protraction of this historic crisis.” Further Mr. Oppenheim stated, “As our family recently traveled during the holidays, I took the time to thank the TSA workers who I knew were working and not getting paid. It was at that moment that I realized that we, as a firm, could help mitigate the current crisis in some small way.”
