Pete Barry and Pat Helwig successfully completed a seven-day course focused on depositions and trial in September 2017. They completed intensive training in openings, closings, direct and cross examinations, and jury selection. The week-long training was done with 32 attorneys from across the nation by the National Institute for Trial Advocacy.
Pete Barry will speak at the National Consumer Law Center’s Annual FDCPA Conference in New Orleans, LA on March 27-28, 2017. Pete gave a keynote luncheon address, as well as covering 3 hours of legal seminar materials on effective case screening, depositions, settlement, and the Electronic Funds Transfer Act.
The FCC denied the Mortgage Bankers Association the right to robo call its customers without penalty. This was a major blow to the mortgage banking industry which sought to exempt itself from a federal law, the TCPA, which prohibits robo calls to a consumer without their prior express consent. In its order denying the Mortgage Bankers Association exemption request, the FCC repeatedly cited to a letter submitted by Consumer Lawyer Pete Barry in reaching its decision. This is a huge victory for American consumers who do not want to be harassed with phone calls by the big banks. The FCC’s denial order is here. If you’re getting robo calls that you don’t want, from anyone, call our office today and we can help.
