Jacksonville, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/14/2013 -- The McCann Law Group provides additional access to bankruptcy and debt management help for financially distressed individuals in New York after attorney Mark Lewis became a partner in October. Lewis brings to the McCann Law Group’s national bankruptcy team over two decades worth of bankruptcy experience having filed thousands of both chapter 7 and chapter 13 bankruptcy cases.
Lewis currently works at the Law Offices of Mark E. Lewis which he founded over 22 years ago. His primary practice areas include bankruptcy, debt consolidation, criminal law, real estate law and foreclosure defense. Over the course of his legal career, he has helped thousands of people reduce or eliminate millions of dollars in debt.
Lewis attended law school at Akron Law School and was admitted to practice law in New York in 1990. He is also currently admitted to practice in the Federal Bankruptcy Court and the Federal District Court.
Prior to attending law school, Lewis graduated from SUNY Buffalo. He received a bachelor’s degree in psychology and sociology.
Recently, the McCann Law Group experienced an increased demand for help with filing bankruptcy in the New York area. One potential factor that may have contributed to an increased demand for bankruptcy assistance could be New York’s adverse foreclosure statistics.
According to RealtyTrac, a website tracking foreclosure statistics in the United States, New York experienced an increase in several foreclosure statistics when compared with the previous year. Pre-foreclosures are up 26.6 percent from the previous year, foreclosure auctions are up 1.2 percent from the previous year and bank owned properties are up an astonishing 123.2 percent from the previous year.
The McCann Law Group hopes its recent designation of Lewis as partner may be able to help more financially distressed individuals and homeowners recover in the New York area.
