Join Attorney Stephen Foondos from the United Law Center this and every Saturday from 3-4:00 p.m. for the Ask Steve radio program on NewsRadio KFBK 1530AM when we discuss what questions do you need to ask a Bankruptcy attorney before hiring them Make sure and check out Stephen’s new legal challenge series that runs every weekday morning at 7:30am on KQCA-MY58 TV. These weekly topics will extend into the radio show where we explore them in more depth. This week’s show will cover:

What questions should you ask a Bankruptcy attorney if you are considering filing? This is a great way to figure out if your attorney is the RIGHT attorney. Questions to consider are:

  • How many years of experience do they have in the area of law?
  • What kind of result should we expect?

Here’s a great checklist of ideas on how to evaluate a good attorney from Forbes.com.

Of concern this week is the fact that President Trump has announced that he is developing a bill to loosen bank regulations including lessening the power of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) to go after banks that have violated homeowners’ rights. We are hearing that these could be the highlights based on an article by USA Today referring to a memo by Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas), chairman of the House Financial Services Committee and a critic of the banking law:

  • Turning the director of the CFPB into a political appointee. The CFPB is an independent agency, funded by the Federal Reserve. Richard Cordray, the current director, is serving a 5-year term, set to expire in 2018. Lack of independence could make yet another oversight group partisan.
  • *Weakening CFPB’s reach. Hensarling is also looking to remove the CFPB’s authority to bring cases against financial services companies and individuals that it deems to have committed “unfair, deceptive, or abusive acts or practices.” He also wants to remove the CFPB’s databases containing consumer complaints. The agency has received more than 1 million complaints since 2010. What? Not OK.
  • *Loosening banks’ requirements. Hensarling’s bill would remove the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation from a review process to determine banks’ readiness in case of a recession.

  1. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

    Hello There. I found your blog using msn. This is a really well written article. I will make sure to bookmark it and return to read more of your useful information. Thanks for the post. I’ll definitely return.

    Thank you for the sensible critique. Me and my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research on this. We got a grab a book from our local library but I think I learned more from this post. I’m very glad to see such excellent info being shared freely out there.

  4. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
