There are very few events in life that simply should not be missed under any circumstances.  In my opinion, for attorneys practicing in the Western U.S. and perhaps even others who are engaged in the battle between homeowners and their banks and servicers, this is unquestionably such an event.  Max Gardner is bringing OPERATION STRIKE BACK to Law Vegas on February 18-21.

Why do I feel so strongly, that I would make such a statement?  Because I’ve been there… and back.  This past fall I made the pilgrimage back to Shelby, North Carolina to spend five very intense days at Max’s 160 acre ranch in the Western mountains of that beautiful state.  Cell phones don’t really work, and there’s no internet connection handy, but on the other hand who would have time to use either of those conveniences when you’re in classes 12 hours a day, and when you’re not you’re either eating or sleeping.  He doesn’t call it boot camp because he has a fondness for boots, let’s just say that.

While I was there, trying to absorb the voluminous amounts of incredibly valuable information and tools being laid out before me, all I kept thinking was that I had to find a way to get all the attorneys and other experts I knew back home in California, Arizona, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, et al,  to somehow come to North Carolina to spend a week without their phone or internet tether in Shelby.

Not only that, but it’s not an inexpensive journey to make either, Shelby that is.  So, not only do you have to invest the time, but there’s more than just a few bucks to shell out as well.  Not that it’s not worth literally ten times its price, but I know roughly what the lawyers who are representing homeowners against their bank and servicers are making, and it’s not that much, let me assure you.

And then it happened… Max sends me an email and he’s is bringing OPERATION STRIKE BACK to Las Vegas!

I once asked Max how he did it… what was his strategy… and he replied: “Well, Martin… I just keep sending them shovels, and eventually they bury themselves.”

Here’s why no one should even consider missing this:

1. Max Gardner, besides being one of my favorite people on the planet, is also the smartest, most experienced and I would venture to guess most successful attorney in the country as far as fighting for the rights of consumers against banks, servicers, and creditors in general.  I don’t think any of that is debatable or requires any further explanation.  Read About Max Gardner here. Read About Max’s Bankruptcy & Litigation Model here.

2. I’ve been there, and I’m here to tell you that there’s no professional education program like it anywhere in the country, and I would have no trouble expanding that statement to include the world.  In a matter of days, and in this case just three days, Max basically gives all attendees his thirty-year practice in a box with easy assembly instructions and ongoing support.  There’s nothing theoretical about what you’ll gain, in fact, you’ll likely learn things that you’ll put to work during one of the breaks by calling your office and giving new instructions.  This is a lot like visiting my in-laws who are of Greek descent, for Christmas… no one leaves hungry.  Read what OPERATION STRIKE BACK is going to teach you here.

3. You’ll save more than 60% as compared with what it would cost you to go to Shelby for the better part of a week… and actually a lot more than that because you won’t have to fly to Shelby… which is not a major hub, by the way.  And I know that money’s no object when the education is so clearly worth its weight in gold.  But missing this would be like a college basketball player at UNLV missing a chance to train with Michael Jordan while he happens to be staying at Caesar’s Palace.  Pricing for the event is shown below, about $2500 if you book before January 19th, and suffice it to say that an attorney could reasonably assume to break even on the first post-event client engagement.

4. Max practices in North Carolina, a non-judicial foreclosure state, and he does things there that I’ve never heard of anyone doing in California, Nevada, Arizona, or any other non-judicial foreclosure state.  Every time I bring something up to an attorney out here having to do with using the courts in foreclosure defense, I always hear how it can’t be done here because we’re not a judicial foreclosure state.  Well, horse pucky!  Max Gardner does things on behalf of homeowners that I never hear about being done out here, and it’s clear that we just don’t know enough, or we’d be doing it out here too.

5. It’s intellectually stimulating and a whole lot of fun… even in Shelby, North Carolina, but when you consider that you’ll be saving more than 60% over attending in North Carolina, and that you’ll be getting everything that Max offers in three days instead of five, and you get to stay at the Paris Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas or Bally’s at a special discounted rate with five-star dining and a spa that’s to die for… well… I can’t imagine how you could possibly make the whole package any more compelling.

Need more?  Well, I’m going to be there, how’s that? And I’m not just going to be there… I’m attending the whole thing.  That’s right… I found Max’s Boot Camp in North Carolina so valuable that the day I was leaving I knew I wanted to come back and do it again… and since Max is coming to Las Vegas, I’m going to attend AGAIN!  And I cannot wait, truth be told.

So, please… read on… click around on the various links and get your arms around the idea that Max Gardner is bringing OPERATION STRIKE BACK to Las Vegas, February 18-21… because for attorneys representing homeowners who are up against the banks and mortgage servicers… this changes EVERYTHING.  And you’re going to want to be there… there’s no question in my mind. Want to talk to me further about why I think this is so important… email me at

Just don’t put it off, and don’t pass it by… forward this to your peers… Max is coming here and it’s your opportunity to take things up a couple of notches when fighting for the rights of homeowners against creditors, banks and mortgage servicers.
