Every few months I must issue a declaration that I am not endorsing people. Some claim it just because I am in contact with them. Even where I have referred business to a particular entity or lawyer, that does not constitute an endorsement unless I say it does.
For example, I do endorse Bill Paatalo and Dan Edstrom as forensic analysts. This of course does not mean that they are always right anymore than I am always right. But it does mean that I believe that they perform their work in a very professional, logical and focused manner.Their work product is equally useful for lawyers and pro se litigants.
I also fully endorse Patrick Giunta in Fort Lauderdale as one of the best attorneys known to me, because I have been in court with him where he has won difficult cases or motions.
And I endorse Charles Marshall in California because I have seen a lot of his work and I have had long extensive conversations with him that revealed a deep understanding of the foreclosure mess and litigation techniques and strategies.
I do not endorse any other forensic analyst or lawyer. Several people have used the Internet as a means to leverage my name and reputation for their own gain. Worse, some of them are pushing things like quiet title as an effective means to defend foreclosures. I specifically disclaim that strategy and I can report no instances in which quiet title has been successful as a defensive strategy to foreclosures.
The fact that I may not have endorsed a particular person or company does not mean that their services are worthless. It only means that I don’t yet feel familiar enough with their services to be comfortable with an endorsement.
So if somebody tells you that I have endorsed their strategy, ask them to prove it. And the best proof is to call our main telephone number 202 838 6345.
