Elizabeth M. Lynch is a staff attorney in the Foreclosure Prevention Project at MFY Legal Services, Inc. Through representation at settlement conferences as well as through litigation, Elizabeth assists New York City homeowners in modifying their current mortgages in an attempt to keep them in their homes. In August 2011, Elizabeth drafted a white paper entitled “Justice Deceived: How Large Foreclosure Firms Subvert State Regulations Protecting Homeowners,” a study documenting New York foreclosure law firms’ systemic patterns of abuse of the court-based settlement conference process. In May 2012, Elizabeth updated the findings with Justice Unsettled: How the Foreclosure Shadow Docket & Discontinuances Prevent New Yorkers from Saving Their Homes. Following issuance of Justice Deceived and Justice Unsettled, New York's Office of Court Administration proposed legislation that would end foreclosure law firms’ abuse of the process. Elizabeth’s writings on mortgage foreclosure issues have appeared in The Huffington Post and The New York Times. She graduated summa cum laude from the University of Albany (SUNY), received her J.D. from Harvard Law School and was a Fulbright scholar at Peking University in Beijing.
