Legal aid helps Mr. Thomas and his daughters stop a faulty foreclosure and save their home

Bruce Thomas, a single father from Riverside, California, and his two daughters faced homelessness when a bank foreclosed on their home after 18 months of loan negotiations. Determined to save his home, Mr. Thomas turned to Inland Counties Legal Services (ICLS) for help. Attorneys at ICLS were able to gather crucial evidence that the foreclosing party was not the originator of the loan and, after two years of litigation, the bank dropped the case against Mr. Thomas, and he and his family were able to keep their home.

Attorneys at ICLS gave Mr. Thomas and his family the opportunity to restore stability and a sense of certainty to their lives. “(ICLS’s) assistance definitely changed my views about the legal system,” said Mr. Thomas, “and helped prove to me that the injustices happening because of the banking system’s rush for greed could be stopped... If it happened to me it most certainly happened to others too who were not as fortunate as I was to have Inland Counties Legal Services catch this issue.” Donate now to help people like Mr. Thomas and his daughters obtain critical legal aid.
