Attorneys who speak Haitian Creole and Spanish will be on hand during a foreclosure help clinic next month to help borrowers facing foreclosure or trying to get a mortgage modification.

The free, one-on-one consultations are part of the Nassau County Bar Association’s monthly clinic for struggling homeowners. The next one has been set for 3 to 6 p.m. Feb. 7 at the bar’s headquarters at the corner of 15th and West streets in Mineola. Reservations are required by calling the bar at 516-747-4070.

These attorneys will also translate for homeowners who wish to take advantage of other free consultations at the clinic.

Other groups coming include the Community Development Corp. of Long Island, a housing counseling nonprofit that can also help on loan modifications; the Nassau County Homeownership Center, which can detail government help; the Nassau/Suffolk Law Services Volunteer Lawyers Project, which can provides free legal services for those who meet certain income guidelines; and bankruptcy attorneys, who will provide free guidance.

The bar began organizing the clinics in early 2009 in response to the waves of struggling homeowners who had little idea on how to save their homes.
