I appreciate the feedback and debate on this most important topic. Please understand, I am NOT disregarding the work of everyone….only those that are breaking the law and putting consumers in harm’s way!
I recently had very powerful results working with one researcher that translated into real results in three different cases. I am happy to share my experiences with other attorneys about the value and quality of this work. But no one who is attacking this discussion has provided credible evidence…or any evidence for that matter…of real results.
This discussion (and the challenge) was also recently picked up over at MarketTicker, another great site….
My position is simply this: If you have a track record then let’s see it. If you don’t then stop leading people to believe you have something valuable to sell them, because on an objective basis you either can’t or won’t back up your claims.
I have long held that there’s plenty of fraud to go around in mortgage origination and securitization, from notes not transferred to loans sold more than once to various other irregularities, and that they probably include your mortgage.
But none of this means a thing as a matter of law unless you can get your claimed evidence into a courtroom, have it heard and get a judgment. Whether the inability to do so is due to judges being stupid, obtuse or actively corrupt is immaterial to the outcome. And what I keep hearing from real lawyers trying real cases is that judges will not permit this evidence into the record irrespective of what it suggests or even proves! Without being able to get the evidence into the record its value is zero!
