Reverse Mortgage problems… the issues are ongoing

I posted about Reverse Mortgages two weeks ago. We received some excellent and helpful e-mails in response, as well as several comments here on the Legal Examiner. One of those comments suggests that our information is old and outdated. Actually that is simply not true….. Further, I am certainly not alone in my concerns. I […]

Reverse Mortgages and Mortgage Servicing: What we continue to learn is disturbing

Last September, I posted about reverse mortgages here. We agreed to represent our client, Mrs. Gravlin 4 days before the trial was scheduled in the foreclosure action.  She had a reverse mortgage, they were foreclosing on her (despite what you might have seen on TV commercials, you can lose your house…..) Mrs. Gravlin had been […]

Ruminations on advertising and being a fiduciary

I’ve been doing a lot of driving lately, to Jacksonville, Orlando, Miami, Tampa… and it seems that in every major city, there are the same billboards, showing some smiling individual with the tag line that their lawyer got them X number of dollars!  Of course the lawyer is different , depending on which city the […]

Honor and Mendacity, the yang and yin of doing things right

If you haven’t taken the time to go and watch “The Big Short” movie, you really ought to. It is thought provoking, true, informative, and it will make you angry. (The acting, and the directing are beyond top notch). Like many folks, for me, this time of year is one of both reflection and planning.  […]

Medical Bill balance billing

Here’s the scenario: You get healthcare, you give the healthcare provider your insurance card (automobile insurance after an accident, or health insurance/HMO otherwise). The insurance company/HMO pays the provider what it wants to pay (that determination is another subject completely!) Now you get a bill from the healthcare provider or a bill collector telling you […]

Does safety sell?

When anyone purchased or leased a 2014 Cadillac CTS Sedan prior to the spring of 2014, the vehicle had a new car sticker, (called a Monroney Sticker), that indicated the 2014 CTS sedan had been tested, and had a 5 Star Crash Rating, all around.

No trial lawyer is an island, you just can’t do this stuff alone

We are rather heavily involved in class action litigation of all types.  Very rarely do we handle a class action without teaming up with other experienced law firms.  The amount of work, paper, and expense involved in most class actions require a level of sophistication, expertise, and commitment that requires a team of law firms.
