“My goal is to help Arizona homeowners”

The Law Firm of Ellen K. Lawson Attorney at Law PLC was founded in early 2009 when Arizona’s housing market was experiencing a major downturn.

Ellen Lawson established her firm to directly assist Arizona homeowners and help them save their homes from foreclosure whenever possible.

Attorney Ellen Lawson takes great pride in helping Arizona homeowners with all of their residential real estate needs in the areas of loan modification, purchase and sales contracts, excess proceeds, 2nd mortgage/HELOC debt settlement, HOA debt settlement and foreclosure avoidance.

Short Sale Experience

Ellen was referred to us to assist us with our short sale - land investment. Arizona has very unique laws to the vacant land short sale process, so we were very pleased to meet someone who not only understood these laws and nuances, but actually had significant experience in successfully working with lenders to close the transaction. Ellen is extremely knowledgeable in this niche area of real estate and I would highly recommend consulting/ engaging her firm to assist you.
