U.S. Bank, N.A. “as Trustee” Facing Sanctions In Miami — Livinglies’s Weblog

“It’s unusual that we’re in this position, but it’s unusual that any bank would dare do what they’re doing and think they are above the law like this.” – Bruce Jacobs, Miami Foreclosure Defense Lawyer. Kudos to Jacobs for doing some real lawyering. It is all in the details. Just assume they don’t have the…

That is good news that at least one judge is sick and tired of the big banks acting like they are above the law and can ignore court orders.  More judges need to do what this judge is doing.

Cal. 3d DCA: WRONGFUL FORECLOSURE — You Can Cancel the Assignment, Notice of Default, Notice of Sale and Reverse the Sale. — Livinglies’s Weblog

This decision “Not for publication” takes one more step toward unravelling the false claims of securitization that resulted in millions of fake foreclosures over at least 15 years. The pure nonsense being peddled by Wall Street investment banks still remains as the underlying basis for assumptions and presumptions that are contrary to fact and contrary…

What should I pay my attorney?

You only get what you pay for may be an old saying but it is the absolute truth when it comes to hiring an attorney or any other professional.

Livinglies's Weblog

Like all professions the practice of law mostly involves activities that the client never sees. And it is the quantity and quality of work by the attorney that is the largest factor in getting a good result.

The best result is having the foreclosure dismissed or vacated with findings of fact that make it virtually impossible for the foreclosing party to try again. To get that result you need experienced trial counsel who does all the work he/she thinks is necessary to achieve the goal. Those are at the top of winning food chain.

If you must pay less then you must lower your goal or buy a winning lottery ticket.

Conflict of Interest: Foreclosure Mills

Livinglies's Weblog

Despite warnings from Bar Associations and CLE courses that have been reported on this blog going back to 2008, lawyers routinely come into court and say “Good Morning your Honor, my name is John Smith and I represent US Bank.” That is not exactly true. In fact, it is a misrepresentation. In most cases the foreclosing party is named as a Trust, not a bank.  And the real client paying attorney fees is the CURRENT named servicer, who is taking instructions pursuant to some indemnification agreement with the named Master Trustee stated in the “trust instrument” (Pooling and servicing Agreement).

Not one of those parties has any interest in preserving the value of the collateral and in fact they all make a great deal of money when the foreclosure sale is “completed” and if the property is subject to a “credit bid” the proceeds of liquidation of the property to…

Contingent Fees or Success Fees for Mediators: Why Not? — MEDIATBANKRY

By: Donald L. Swanson I have a new LinkedIn friend, Mark Winters from the U.K., who’s developed a mediation practice within an unusual context. And he’s making it work. Since the practice arose from his own creativity and out of unusual circumstances, he’s unbounded by common norms and can do creative things. One creativity is this: […]

Interesting article. I agree with the author that contingency fees should be allowed in mediation as long as all of the parties involved have agreed.

Modification or Refi? Which is it? — Livinglies’s Weblog

Just because a document bears a title doesn’t mean that it accurately describes the nature of the transaction. A modification of any agreement requires both sides to agree. Here again we have the identity of the creditor being changed — expressly eliminating any claim that the “servicer” is a legal representative of the creditor to […]
