So after much consideration, I have finally decided to start a blog. It took me a while to get to this point, but there is so much important information the consumers of Florida need to know about their rights that I felt it imperative to start this blog and do my part to get the word out.
Yes, I’m a young lawyer, but I’ve already seen a lot and am in the trenches fighting for the consumers of Florida every day, in and out of the courtroom. I’ve seen the homeowners basically begging for an opportunity to just make mortgage payments again and save the home they love, to find nothing but disorganization and disregard by the bank. I’ve seen the folks making a good faith effort to settle their debts, to only be taken advantage of by purported debt settlement companies that took their money and never settled their debts. Through my practice, I have learned a good amount of information and gained important insight that I truly believe could prove useful for the consumers of Florida.
We have a civil justice system where unless you are poor enough to qualify for legal aid or a generous attorney takes your case pro bono, consumers are often relegated to defend themselves against wealthy entities without the aid of a lawyer. In a perfect society, all consumers could have their own advocate too. Unfortunately, life isn’t perfect and I’m not sure what the solution would be. In the meantime, I can at least do my part in educating the consumers of Florida about what I’ve learned through my practice, and what I will continue to learn going forward. That’s what this blog will be all about. You.
If just one consumer is able to defend herself or himself a little better when their rights are violated because of information they obtained on this blog, it will have all been worth it. I may not be able to blog as much as I’d like due to my schedule, but I’ll do the best I can.
So please, check in every once in a while. You may just a learn a thing or two.
All the best,
Ryan C. Torrens, Esq. Consumers Rights Attorney
