Older Queens residents, especially in communities of color, have been targeted and victimized in deed theft and foreclosure rescue scams. Clinic students, under the supervision of Professors Ann Goldweber and Gina Calabrese have represented several victims in civil actions to recover their homes while the District Attorney’s Office has pursued criminal charges and felony convictions.
