David and Goliath: How a Young Lawyer Took on Wells Fargo and Saved a Family Home from Foreclosure
28 year old California lawyer Wajahat Ali, fought an epic battle for a home loan modification against Wells Fargo and won…Eventually.
His story is a well-written and terrifying look into the financial crisis, the state of America’s megabanks, and how homeowners in need seemingly stand no chance against the towering indifference, incompetence and confusion of those megabanks.
It is also a piece about how the passion and tenacity of a young lawyer (or any lawyer) can make all the difference in the lives of his or her clients — to empower the powerless and not the powerful.
For lawyers, Ali’s epic struggle to save his client’s home is an inspiration.
