  • Richard Scot Shuster

    For homeowners is Sarastota / Bradenton area Chris Forrest is a lawyer who should be on their short list. Foreclosure lawyers in the know, recognize Mr. Forrest for taking some outstandingfvideo depositions of robo-signers and putting them on the web. Mr. Forrest's YouTube videos so infuriated several lenders that they sued to take the video deposition off YouTube. The videos were cross posted so many times that even after Mr. Forrest took his video down.... other YouTube versions are still up. See one of them at this link http://www.creditwritedowns.com/2010/11/videos-depositions-of-alleged-robo-signers-nationwide-title-clearing.html As one of the few foreclosure lawyers who take depositions, I know that it takes time, money, and planning to take depositions in foreclosure cases. Most lawyers to not take this important step in foreclosure cases. Chris spent extra money to video the deposition and extra time to post it online. This helped other lawyers and home owners.
