| Albertelli Law Firm who is Under Investigation by the Florida Attorney General Could Profit from Legislation Designed to Move Foreclosure Notices Online

Also complicating the debate is Tampa-based Albertelli Law Firm, which owns, which is under investigation by Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi. Bondi’s office confirmed they’ve received at least 16 complaints against Albertelli alleging everything from “foreclosure fraud” to “nothing short of racketeering.”


A Tampa law firm under investigation by the Florida attorney general could also profit from legislation designed to move foreclosure notices online

TAMPA, Fla. — Two state lawmakers want home foreclosure notices to go online – not in your local newspaper. A law firm in the Bay area stands to make big bucks off the switch, but that firm is under investigation by the Florida attorney general.

Even if you don’t read them, foreclosure notices show up in most local papers multiple times each week. However, State Sen. Steve Wise (R-Jacksonville) and Rep. Dennis Baxley (R-Ocala) want to move those legal notices to the digital world with two bills filed at the state capitol.

Rep. Baxley told 10 News, “Newspapers need to be aware they’re in the information age and compete for these opportunities…I think it’s one step forward to unclog the whole foreclosure pipeline.”

    It is agreed that the the expeditious method of processing froeclosures was incorrect. But that doesn’t mean that every idea that Albertelli comes up with is wrong or deceitful. The monoply certain newspapers have over public notices is unconscionable. If you add them up the Daily Business Review in Broward, Dade and Palm Beach counties makes over $10 million from foreclosure notices … virtually all of it is profitable. It makes no sense that a publication with such a small circulation should monopolize the public notice market.

    These bills are a good idea whose time has come. Piling on additional astronomic publishing costs for those who have lost their homes, to place notices in a newspaper nobody reads, instead of on line is unfair and regressive. Move the notices on line but not to Albertelli’s site.

    I have a potentially damaging letter written by John Lippincott an attorney that works for Albertelli from 2008 when he worked for Taylor Bean & Whittaker. I turned this letter over to the OIG/FHFA. If anyone is interested in seeing it I’ll redact personal information and send it along. email me at shha2002 at The letter was in response to a QWR.

    Gee, whiz, we can yank Occupy protesters off the streets and into jail with NO PROBLEM, so why the hell can’t we prosecute ONE SINGLE SOLITARY shyster lawyer??

    All law firms that had anything to do with Fraudclosure need to be investigated and pursued to the fullest extent of the law.I feel it is safe to assume that where one has done this others have followed and still do as it is a money making proposition.Most lawyers are like sharks circling in the water that has blood they don’t leave until the blood has cleared.Not a pleasant thing to say but true none the less.
