So there I was in a foreclosure rocket docket today when another attorney went before me to make his argument. This guy was more prepared than about any attorney I’ve ever seen. A binder full of cases and tabs of documents and just loaded for bear. He was dead on solid correct in his position, and his Motion should have been granted, but the judge just couldn’t see his way to do that. Now this attorney didn’t lose…..like so often happens in those situations…the judge punted and continued the hearing, but let me tell you something…this attorney knew his foreclosure defense.
NOW HERE’S THE BOMBSHELL- The attorney arguing for homeowner’s rights was none other than Florida House Representative Kevin Ambler. Now you might remember that Kevin Ambler met with members of the homeowner’s rights group when we traveled to Tallahassee. We should never forget that he was very instrumental in defeating the non-judicial foreclosure bill. What is most impressive is that Rep. Ambler is fighting the fight just like good defense practitioners and homeowners all across this state.
Now this post will be short and I will include quite a bit of additional information later, but here is the deal. Kevin Ambler is running for Florida Senate
AND WE ARE GOING TO MAKE SURE HE GETS ELECTED TO THE FLORIDA SENATE.
For those of you in the Tampa / Pasco area, I am absolutely imploring you to log onto his website, sign up and volunteer.
I will be meeting with Rep. Ambler in the immediate future and I am absolutely convinced that he will be a powerful force to stand up and protect our courts and consumers. Ambler was absolutely aghast when I shared with him stories of judges limiting access to courtrooms. He was shocked, appalled, in disbelief. That really got his attention so I would very much like to have some of your stories to share with him.
Representative Ambler was one of the key architects of the funding for the senior judges and he was likewise deeply concerned with reports of how the programs are being implemented. As the senior member on the House judicial committees, he is a very powerful voice that we need to share our stories with.
MORE LATER, BUT PLEASE DO YOUR PART…..LOG ONTO AMBLER’S WEBSITE AND GET INVOLVED…I’M CONVINCED WE HAVE AN OPEN AND FAIR MINDED EAR IN THE FLORIDA LEGISLATURE.
