This clown Mark Stopa is a criminal, the typical “stall” attorney, who made five million ripping off homeowners with useless arguments; the outcome for his clients–foreclosure. Now after getting disbarred, he wants to blame the courts for his incompetence and illegal activities.
He claims he tried over 7000 cases over a 7-year period, which is impossible. According to him, he won 2000, which is a lie and is easily provable. And what about the 5000 homeowners who lost their homes. If he was such an expert why did he lose so many. Oh, that’s right the courts are corrupt.
Expert attorneys win 90% plus of their cases not 20%. The truth be known those so-called wins were dismissals, where the banks came back and re-foreclosed. Guaranteed, almost every homeowner that hired him eventually lost their home!
Moreover, he was ripping off homeowners another way by talking clients into giving their property to him for a couple of thousand, and then renting out those properties for tens of thousands.
We have more evidence, not in the Tampa Bay Times article, of other fraudulent and unethical activity by Stopa and other “stall” attys in Florida basically doing the same things Stopa was accused of doing equity skimming, which is a crime.
What is truly sad is that gullible people believe the lies of these frauds and perpetuate the lies by taking up for such scammers without knowing the truth.
