Simply put, payments for services rendered in defending a government workers home will be deferred, until such individuals are paid by the government. Mr. Oppenheim, a well-recognized Fort Lauderdale foreclosure attorney added, “No one really thought that the government shut down would continue so long. It now appears that a number of these folks will not be able to meet their rent and mortgage obligations due to the protraction of this historic crisis.” Further Mr. Oppenheim stated, “As our family recently traveled during the holidays, I took the time to thank the TSA workers who I knew were working and not getting paid. It was at that moment that I realized that we, as a firm, could help mitigate the current crisis in some small way.”
