The Firm has an active practice in the institution of foreclosure proceedings. Over the past 4 years the Maryland General Assembly has continuously toughened and lengthened the residential foreclosure process, especially for owner-occupied properties. Due to Mr. Piel’s significant experience with foreclosures, several trade organizations have asked Mr. Piel to teach others the continuously changing residential foreclosure rules and ways to avoid the most common pitfalls. The Firm has handled commercial and residential foreclosure throughout the State of Maryland.
