Collecting a Debt: To Certify or Not to Certify

In my previous post, I discussed the what documents are necessary to properly protect your money and then how to ask for the money back upon the loan’s maturity. In this segment, I’m would like to touch on a topic that vexes my client time and time again: do they send the letter certified, by mail, or by email. Certainly, sending the letter by email is the quickest.  What’s more, there is usually metadata that ensures that the parties know that the letter was received (i.e. a read receipt). The nice thing about email is you know the message was

Collecting A Debt: The Anatomy of the Lawsuit

I’ve provided three separate posts about the things you can do, short of a lawsuit, to attempt to get paid.  However, in the event you cannot get paid, the courts often act as a place where you can complain and seek relief from the person that is not paying you.To file a lawsuit, you have to meet the standard notice requirements.  You have to serve the defendant and put them on notice of the lawsuit.  You have to make sure you are in the right court to bring the cause of action, and you have to make a claim for

Tax Lien Investing: An exceptionally effective passive income investment

The key to “passive income” is to allow your money to work for you.  Tax liens are an effective way to do this.  In Arizona, an individual may buy tax liens and gain up to 16% on their investment if they are redeemed.  If they are not redeemed, the investor may foreclose upon the home after three (and up to 10 years).The process is relatively straightforward.  After a property owner fails to pay its taxes, an individual may “buy” a tax lien by paying the property taxes for the property owner.   The Government is entitled to 16%.  As such,

Arizona Supreme Court limits the “show me the note” defense

One of the more common defenses in a foreclosure actions is the “show me the note” defense.  The defendant is effectively saying “I may be guilty of not paying my loan, but you can’t prove that you own it.”  For a while, this defense might have worked, due to poor record keeping or some other reason.  However, as more courts address that defense, it is becoming very limited. In Hogan v. Washington Mutual Bank et al, CV 11-0115-PR (Ariz. 2012) the Arizona Supreme Court granted review to determine “if Arizona’s statutes require the beneficiary to prove its authority or ‘show the note’ before

Arizona Supreme Court Rules that Damages Differ in Negligence and Wrongful Death Cases

The Arizona Supreme Court was asked to consider whether a jury may decline to award damages in a wrongful death case. Walsh v. Advanced Cardiac Specialist, Chartered, (2012). It can. Facts: A doctor replaced the plaintiff’s heart-valve.  The valve became infected, and the Plaintiff died.  Plaintiff’s family filed a wrongful death complaint for failing to “diagnose and threat the infection.”  At trial the jury awarded $1,000,000 to the mom and nothing to the children.  The children sought a new trial based on the precedent sent forth in White v.

Appealing A Failed Bar Exam in Arizona

On average, 77.3% of first time bar takers pass the Arizona Bar Exam between 2000 to 2009.  This means roughly 22.7% of first-time takers do not pass the bar.  Of course, those people have the opportunity to take the test again, but statistics show that second (and third) time test takers are less likely to pass the  same exam.  As a result, some bar takers may choose to appeal their score.  If you choose to appeal, keep the following in mind: 1.  Great Legal Briefs Are Short; Yours Should Be Too:  Make your point and move on.  If your brief is too long, the reader may start to
