The team at Codilis & Associates helps clients facing foreclosure, but not just in the courtroom. Founder Ernie Codilis has donated time and money to help Chicago area homeowners who may be at risk of foreclosure through the Attorneys’ Title Guaranty Fund.

The Attorneys’ Title Guaranty Fund, in partnership with Neighborhood Housing Services of Chicago, set up a series of Fix-Your-Mortgage events to educate those nearing foreclosure, and to help them apply for loan modification. Mr. Codilis and other attorneys donated their time to help at these events.

Fund managers also contribute to various organizations that help homeowners. The Chicago Bar Foundation, for example, offers not-for-profit foreclosure defense. The Center for Conflict Resolution also got support from the fund; it offers pro bono mediation services and helps more than 5,000 clients each year resolve foreclosures and other disputes.

The Attorneys’ Title Guaranty Fund has also represented consumers before the Illinois Supreme Court. Several members testified before a special committee, warning of the dangers of short sale negotiations and the impact of delays during foreclosures. Members encouraged the state supreme court to add regulations that allow for faster sales.
