Foreclosure defense lawyers are not the bad guys in this fight. We have been screaming for years that systemic problems throughout the foreclosure process will have severe consequences in the years to come. The breakdowns in this process represent real and critical breakdowns in our entire justice system.

Unfortunately, the relatively fair practice environment is not found all across the state.
Too many judges believe the most important part of their job is to push through foreclosure cases….at all costs. As we will all learn in the months and years to follow, “at all costs” is going to add up to one massive bill. Title claims, fraud claims, due process claims. Fraudclosuregate is the civil rights movement of our generation because it exposes profound faults within our justice system. Our justice system has been systematically hijacked by corrupt and out of control business interests with a long established track record of abuse.
