In this week's episode of the Crushing Debt Podcast, I get away from interviews for a bit and talk about Usury Laws.
Usury Laws protect consumers from lenders who charge an excessive rate of interest. I had a usury issue come up in one of my cases and I thought it would be interesting to explore the issue in the podcast.
The issue is whether unpaid late charges on a mortgage can be "captured" as interest to drive up the interest rate on a residential note and mortgage to a level over 18% (which is usurious in Florida).
Welcome to the first Crushing Debt Podcast of 2018!
In Episode 95, I interview Gordon Firemark, an attorney for the past 25 years, who helps artists, writers and producers achieve their dreams.
Gordon is also a podcaster. His show is The Entertainment Law Update Podcast.
Gordon and I discuss Entertainment Law and Intellectual Property Law (copyrights and trademarks).
Gordon also has The Law Podcasting Podcast - how to help attorneys create manage and promote their own podcast (I was a guest on that show).
Finally, Gordon has a course on how to protect your online course and seminar, as well as a ton of other material on entertainment law and intellectual property law.
