Client review: We were very impressed with what you did and the knowledge you had in getting the job done.

“It didn’t take me long to realize there are a lot of swindlers out there offering to do the same thing,”

Over the last several years our office has delivered almost $800,000 to our clients in the form of excess sale proceeds. These are proceeds left over after a lender foreclosed on Arizona property.  There are rules who can apply for the funds so it is important to talk to someone experienced in that area of law.

During this time I have found hundreds of scams from folks offering to “help” people obtain those proceeds. Some of these folks were attorneys, such as Ingrid Joy Warrick (3 year suspension for money laundering, in addition to prior suspension).

The following is a thank you we received from a client who received almost $40,000 in the excess sale proceeds.

We are very blessed to have clients take the time so say “thank you”.  This means everything to Jay and me because it solidifies why we take additional time to help.  In this situation Jay took his own time to drive from Phoenix to Mesa (twice) in order to obtain signatures from a client in a nursing home.

Pat and I would like to thank you both, especially you Jay, for all the work you did in obtaining our Excess Funds cheque today. You somehow managed to get this done between January and June and I know how persistent you were. Pat and I would like you to know that you can use us a a referral for Excess Funds clients anytime you need to. We were very impressed with what you did and the knowledge you had in getting the job done. It didn’t take me long to realize there are a lot of swindlers out there offering to do the same thing, but when I talked to you back in December,2013 Diane, and had read your many articles on Excess Funds, I really felt I could trust you. That was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made and we will always be grateful for how you’ve helped us. When you’ve had to walk away from the home you love, being able to secure the Excess Funds through a firm you can trust makes all the difference in the world. Great job!

Please be careful about hiring anyone to help you without first checking our their reputation and credentials. Certainly I would not hire anyone who contacts me.  Instead, I would do as my clients did – do your own research and find someone your are comfortable with.  Last note – never contract with anyone who you do not meet in person.  Do not assume that a lawyer is licensed; check them out with the state bar where they are licensed.  Here is the link to the State Bar of Arizona.

Please feel free to call if you have any questions.
