Bill Ponath, the only conservative running for Justice of the Peace in the Desert Ridge precinct, helps people rescue their homes from foreclosure as a bankruptcy attorney. When someone files bankruptcy, an automatic stay goes into place. Bill has helped countless people on the verge of foreclosure file bankruptcy sometimes within minutes of their house going up for sale at a foreclosure auction. Last week, Bill helped someone who had filed Chapter 13 save their home within minutes of the sale. He found out about the foreclosure at 9:30 am, just half an hour before the home was to go up for sale. Bill was able to work within bankruptcy rules to stop the sale by 10:00 am, giving the homeowner a month’s reprieve to try and work on getting a loan modification to save his home.
