Supporting, Informing & Connecting People in Foreclosure
April 2010 -
Is the Florida Bar retaliating against Florida foreclosure defense attorneys who are exposing the putrid underbelly of the foreclosure mills' malfeasance & rocket docket robo-judges' practices?
I personally know of at least four good foreclosure defense attorneys who have been or are currently being investigated for nonsense and/or unfounded charges.
While foreclosure mill attorneys continue with conduct unbecoming, unprofessional, unethical, and in direct opposition to the standards set forth by the legal profession, foreclosure defense attorneys fend off time consuming and spurious attacks.
One well respected Florida foreclosure defense attorney wrote, "One of my gravest concerns is that foreclosure defense lawyers and homeowner advocates now fear disciplinary investigations or otherr retaliatory actions when they speak out against injustices in our court systems or try to shine a light on fraudulent practices. These are dangerous times for lawyers of conscience. To quote Benjamin Franklin: "We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately."
If you are a Florida foreclosure defense attorney, I welcome you to share your story, anonymously or not, here on this public page or by emailing me. The more light we shine on this developing evidence of professional intimidation of foreclosure defense attorneys the better for all concerned. If you are under attack, know you are not alone. Others are also experiencing this intimidation and might have advice to share.
We are also interested in hearing from attorneys with expertise in defending against this type of professional witch hunt.
Without our excellent foreclosure defense attorneys, we would not have come so far in exposing the entire cradle to grave fraud seen in all securitized mortgages and all Florida rocket dockets. We all owe them a great deal of gratitude.
For historical reference, read To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, a classic American story about a white lawyer whose young daughter narrates the tale of how her family was subjected, in Depression era South, to intimidation tactics after her father choose to excellently defend a black man falsely accused of raping a white woman.
