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…

By Donald L. Swanson “Lending to the most highly indebted companies in the U.S. and Europe is surging.”— Wall Street Journal [Fn. 1] When a large business files for bankruptcy, there is one group that almost always suffers.

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.

Is a Neg-AM Note a Negotiable Instrument? — Livinglies’s Weblog

The UCC is not ambivalent about protecting both the maker of a negotiable instrument and the party seeking to enforce it. The maker does not assume the risk of double liability except for instances where the note is purchased for value in good faith and without knowledge of the borrower’s defenses. In all other circumstances […]

By: Donald L Swanson Many people live the American Dream. They’ve started a business and are succeeding. They’re what makes the U.S. economy work. But bad things can—and do—happen to them: things like product obsolescence, economic downturn, health problems, a costly mistake, bad luck. Such things can destroy their Dream and can destroy the entrepreneurs themselves. […]
