2016 loan mod seminar3I attended the Regs X & Z / Loan Modification Seminar held in Shelby, NC this year with my daughter, Rachel. She is in law school and has heard me talk a lot about the mortgage crisis and how much wrongdoing happens every day to good, hardworking people so she went with me to learn more. It was wonderful! It is very rewarding to save someone’s home and bring to account a mortgage company that seems bent on taking it by almost any means necessary, lining their pockets as they go. 2016 loan mod seminar2

If you are an attorney and you are addressing mortgage fraud, predatory lending practices, and a host of other violations in this arena, attending Max’s boot camps and seminars are a must to keep up to date with the laws and defenses available to aid your client.  If you are reading this and are looking for a lawyer outside of Mississippi to help you with mortgage issues, I encourage you to look at the list of attorneys on his site that have been trained by Max and are keeping up to date.  If you are in Mississippi, call me. I’ll be happy to discuss your situation and the options available to you to get things back under control and save your home. 2016 loan mod seminar4

22nd annual conferenceI enjoyed speaking at the conference this year to my peers. The only thing I love more than taking a bite out of a banker and save someone’s home is teaching other attorneys how to do the same!  The title of my session was “Pulling Back the Curtain…” I compared mortgage companies to the Wizard of Oz – who was no wizard – just a great trickster who hid his activities behind the curtain.  You pull that curtain back and his power is gone! We need more attorneys equipped to fight the good fight and I’m determined to do my part to see that it’s done.

 

 

 

Today I had the privilege of somewhat playing that game in the 3rd grade class of Mrs. Elizabeth Rogers at Northside Elementary in Pearl, MS! I was invited to come and speak to them about being a lawyer (how to become one, what do they do, etc) and also field any questions they had on the law in general.  They have been studying the Bill of Rights and the Constitution in school. They had great questions! Kids that age of course will also ask the funniest things! I was asked if lawyers have lawyers, if lawyers can go to jail too or can you get yourself out of trouble, how much money do you make, do lawyers make the laws, and it was just a great time.  They wanted to know all about going to court, the judge, going to jail…How old do you have to be to be and/or do certain things…Several car accident questions…They were little sponges just wanting to soak in all the details.

The show “Are you smarter than a 5th grader?” is set up differently than what we did today (my wife and I love that show), but it was fun to be under the gun to answer any question that popped into their mind.   I am very appreciative of the opportunity and look forward to doing 3rd grade class_hand up 0910153rd grade class2 091015this again! 3rd grade class_FC hand 091015 Northside Elementary Pearl MS

I have been a member of NACBA (National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys) for quite some time and was able to attend the 20th annual convention this year which was held in beautiful San Antonio, TX. I would strongly suggest that you bookmark the NACBA site as a resource for consumer bankruptcy matters.  Congress, their staff, the media, and the Judicial Branch all recognize NACBA as the lead voice in America regarding consumer bankruptcy law. The Association & it’s member attorneys put their expertise to work by frequently testifying before judicial and legislative bodies against any anti-debtor legislation introduced by an aggressive consumer credit industry. NACBA continues to play a significant role in forming the outcome of policy-related discussion and debates regarding consumer bankruptcy practices.  It truly lives up to it’s goal

To ensure that the voices of consumer debtors and their attorneys are heard in the halls of Congress, the Judiciary and other arenas affecting consumer debtors; and to help consumer bankruptcy attorneys represent their clients more effectively.

Bottom line, attending NACBA conventions provide a wealth of education and keep attorneys up to date on the latest in bankruptcy law – which is a must if you are going to provide the best protection for your clients. Multiple vendors also attend the conference, educating us on the latest available debt counseling programs and a host of other items designed to help consumers before, during, and after bankruptcy.  I’ll be blogging about some of the gems pulled from this conference a little later, so stay tuned! In the meantime, here are some pictures from the convention this past weekend…and yes – I’m the one in the toe shoes speaking with a good friend of mine, Mississippi NACBA State Chair, attorney Pat Sheehan.

Money_TalksI joined the Mississippi Public Broadcasting (MPB) show – Money Talks – on June 18, 2013 to discuss the topic of bankruptcy, what the different chapters have to offer consumers, and how to recover from filing bankruptcy.  We covered a lot of really good information and were able to take a lot of calls from listeners with great questions.  If you are contemplating bankruptcy or even just interested in what it has to offer, I highly recommend you click above and listen to our discussion.

Sadly, this was the last year for the Pink the Town part of the contest…but we look forward to the other activities next year. Visit the Susan G Komen site and get Passionately Pink.

MPB Radio BoothI had the pleasure of being a guest again on the Mississippi Public Broadcasting (MPB) show – Money Talks – on April 02, 2013.  It was “Foreclosure Prevention Week” so we spent the hour discussing the process of foreclosure in Mississippi and the options available to consumers to save their home.
