AN UNEXPECTED REWARD

It is Tuesday evening; almost midnight.  Already passed my “I need to get to sleep” time.  I finished watering the garden, have finished the start of a “fire and brimstone” brief (they always get watered down some)  And now I’m finishing the blog I started last night.

So a lot of cool things happened last week.  But the most touching occurred the Monday morning before yesterday.  I drove down the mountain, parked my car, and entered the thrift shop next door to the ST office.  I often say hi the owners of the neighboring thrift store on Mondays while I check out some of the treasures they have found over the weekend.

That morning, Jeff says “Hey, Scott.  I want you to look at something.”  When Jeff or his wife, Becky, tell me they want me to see something, this immediately gets my attention.  I smile and ask “what you got?” Jeff reaches behind the counter and shows me a piece of art he’s drawn.  “I wanted you to have this”.

As my eyes focus on the image it is clear that the picture was designed to tell a story. I am drawn into the etching.  There is a short silence.  Then Jeff begins to speak.  He tells me the drawing began with the cross.  And at that point I felt shivers.  I remember him showing me the empty teller, the gavel banging into a toilet, and the money shooting into the air.  I heard what he said, but was dumbstruck, humbled, and honored all at the same time.

About Scott . Stafne

Mr. Stafne is very experienced in property rights, including banking wrongs and foreclosure prevention; Constitutional Law (under the United States and Washington State Constitution); Appellate law; land use law; personal injury law. Scott has recently become a media focal point as his win record of foreclosure defense cases against the largest financial institutions, servicers, trustees as well as MERS have blazed the trail toward ending the foreclosure crisis and representing the rights of the homeowner above the profits and secret dealings of corporations.   Scott sees law as a foundation for establishing a system of twenty first century liberties for the people; and for removing that corruption of power within our government which makes the achievement of real purpose beholden to only money.   Scott Stafne has been an attorney since graduating from the University of Iowa in 1974. He worked for a large law firm in Indianapolis (Baker & Daniels) for two years. Thereafter, he moved to Seattle Washington in order to obtain a Masters of Law degree from the University of Washington, which he obtained in 1977. Scott practiced law while going to graduate school and has practiced ever since.   This is a personal blog, and does not constitute legal advice in any form, and is not necessarily reflective of the policies or opinions of Stafne Law Firm.
