I have a couple of brothers who are attorney's, one practices and one doesn't. The one who does practice works at a firm that specializes in home owner association contracts. Basically what there job consists of is hunting down people who are losing their homes due to bankruptcy, and taking whatever equity they have in their property away to pay various fees in the contract that they may not have been aware off, because they didn't have a lawyer revise the contract or didn't understand the ins and outs of the contract itself. Well, my brother texted me today laughing about families who didn't have any equity left in their property, and that they would be paying it though their garnished wages. This gesture was kind of a kick in the gut, because I am going to be engaging in the bankruptcy process soon, and I feel like if Wall Street can get bailed out gambling on the economy, still get paid hefty bonuses with tax dollars, while hundreds of thousands go homeless, how come these fees can't at least be discharged, so whatever equity is left can be used to try and start fresh? Something just seems very off to me that your wages will be garnished after falling on hard times, and to laugh at people who will be getting their wages garnished after the fact kind of bothered me. You know some of these owners have children as well. Pretty funny, eh? Or maybe "They signed the contract" just needs to be looked at objectively, and we shouldn't take into any consideration all the other variables that play a role in a suffering humans life. Screw it if they got laid off from their job, fell on hard times, and are losing their home. We still need those fees! Or maybe I am just a giant pussy? I get it, some people don't care. That is there right, I guess. Who cares about people and society when you're a lawyer just thinking about collecting those fees so you can buy a new Lexus at the end of the month. Thanks for reading.
