The Big Picture: What I’m Fighting For

As I write blogs for this website, I often discuss legal concepts and theories, defenses to foreclosure, and various ideas on how to successfully defend foreclosure lawsuits in Florida.  These posts are important, as I want everyone to see foreclosure court the way I see it – to understand what works and what doesn’t.

Sometimes I worry, though, in the midst of these technical, legal arguments, that some will lose sight of the big picture.  Well, I’d like to think I never lose sight of the big picture, but I want to make sure everyone reading this doesn’t, either.

So what’s the big picture in foreclosure-world?  It’s this.  One short, simple post.  (Read the links inside that post, too.)

Quite simply, a small fragment of our society is hell-bent on redistributing wealth from middle class America to society’s socio-economically elite and uber-wealthy.  That’s what foreclosure is, really – a process whereby houses are taken from lower and middle income families, sold, and ultimately transferred to a hedge fund, big bank, or an individual with an eight or nine figure net worth.  Someone like, yes, Bill Clinton.

My mission, as a foreclosure defense lawyer, is to stop it.  I want to stop the systematic redistribution of wealth that happens every day in our society, the stealing from the middle class for the benefit of society’s elite.

No matter how much time I spend talking about the specific defenses that exist in foreclosure cases – and I know I do it frequently – please never lose sight of the big picture!  And if you agree with me, share what’s going on with a friend or family member.  Significant change won’t happen until more people get involved and join the fight!
