For years, being a foreclosure defense attorney was a relatively simple affair. Foreclosure meant helping the homeowner through a rough patch then they’d be back on their feet and along their way. A few years ago, that started to change. Things got worse for my clients and solutions were harder to come by.
Over the last two years in particular I noticed that things became much, much worse for my clients and their families…..and the banks offered no help or assistance. Right about that same time a few pioneering attorneys began to dig deep into foreclosures and the whole process and in doing so they began to expose major, systemic flaws that permeated the entire mortgage lending and foreclosure process. As we dug deeper and deeper into the whole foreclosure morass we’ve uncovered problems at virtually every step in the process.
The questions of the not so distant past have led us all into a full blown examination of our entire system of government….from the regulators and legislative, straight up to the executive branch and their failed bailout programs. Today the foreclosure fight is a full blown battle to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. We’re fighting to ensure Due Process under the 14th Amendment, protecting against unreasonable seizures recognized in the 4th Amendment and fighting to ensure that our press and members of the public are able to speak freely, challenge their government and seek redress of the injustices being visited upon them, a right protected by the 1st Amendment.
This fight has exposed the very best qualities in some of the best lawyers in this country. It has brought together neighbors, communities and people from every walk of. The ethical, principled and dedicated attorneys who live and breathe this fight will tell you that serving their clients and fighting this fight is the high point of their careers…it certainly has been mine.
I’m going to keep fighting…for you. For the Constitution. For all of us. It’s what I do….I’m a foreclosure defense attorney. I’m honored to serve all of you and thank you for all your support and encouragement….we’re in this together.
