In addition, “Stern Parties” will also hold equity interests. Kerry Propper, Chardan’s chief executive officer said, “The acquisition should generate significant value for our shareholders. David J.

So, Mr. Stern, how does the ‘foreclosure mill” of the David J. Stern law office net $49 miilion in 2009 when you bid on and obtains”bundles” of foreclosures from Wells Fargo Bank or Deutsche Bank and process’s each foreclosure for a flat fee of $1,400 which covers the cost of an associate attorney, processing, service of complaint, office help etc.? I know for a fact that the cost of processing a Foreclosure Complaint has increased since 12th Judicial Circuit Chief Judge Lee Haworth stopped Attorneys “calling in” on Foreclosure Complaints in 2009 and forced Stern Associates to actually drive from Plantation Fl to Bradenton or Sarasota to appear in person.
“The area’s top judge has lost patience with so-called foreclosure mills so he’s ordering them to appear in court. Non-local law firms that specialize in mass foreclosure filings have ignored local court procedures, filed incomplete or inaccurate court documents and “widely abused” the privilege of appearing at court hearings by telephone, 12th Judicial Circuit Chief Judge Lee Haworth said. He’s cracking down, requiring lawyers in foreclosure cases filed in Manatee, Sarasota and DeSoto counties to attend all foreclosure-related hearings in person”.
