An Open Letter To President Obama

Wed Jun 13, 2012 by on Florida Law News

Dear Mr. President: As you know historically, since the great depression, refinancing mortgages has been this country’s exit strategy when it comes to pulling us out of the economic ditch. So it’s nice to see that you are now pushing Congress to pass refinancing reform. It’s the most effective and efficient way to craft a bailout that actually helps everyone. […]

The American Dream — Alive and Well

Thu Jun 7, 2012 by on Florida Real Estate

I had the pleasure to speak to a spirited group of homeowners a few days ago in Delray Beach. I was invited to address a group of homeowners associations, but the group of 70 plus could easily have fit in with the people who walk through my doors every day. They were frustrated, tired of hearing excuses, and they wanted […]

Tue Jun 5, 2012 by on Florida Foreclosures

We’ve all heard by now of the unbelievably grizzly story out of Miami about Rudy Eugene, the man so off his gourd that he ate a man’s face off.

You will hear how it has further eroded confidence in Wall Street and American style capitalism, which it has. The Facebook IPO only reaffirms what many smart, wealthy and Main Street investors […]

Facebook IPO: Why It Went Wrong and Why It Matters

Wed May 23, 2012 by on Florida Law News

I foolishly hoped the Facebook IPO might actually bring some confidence back to Wall Street. What was I thinking? Turns out it’s just another example of how the soulless Wall Street culture is destroying American style capitalism. We have barely gotten past JP Morgan Chase’s $3 billion catastrophe, and the outrage over their foolish decisions, but here we are again. […]

How Some States Are Spending Foreclosure Settlement Money Is Far From Settling

Fri May 18, 2012 by on Florida Foreclosures

It’s pretty hard to find a single housing advocate or foreclosure defense attorney, myself included, who didn’t find the national mortgage settlement to be, at the very least, flawed. It may have been a necessary step to getting the housing market back on track, but we know that it didn’t come close to compensating homeowners who had been illegally kicked […]
