Attorney James Steele This Week at REI ~ Convicted Felon Rights… The new protected class.


Hello Everyone,

Several people contacted me last week wondering why I didn’t write the agenda. And that was because I was in extreme mental distress. I had to take my German Shepherd to the vet to be killed. She died in my arms.

I’m one of those crazy animal lovers... That dog was like my child. There aren't many things on this planet that I loved more than her. She had really aggressive bone cancer and her pain got so bad that I had to give her my morphine to get her through the weekend. The Quellen and Tramadol that the vet prescribed no longer worked. Having to have her put down hurt me pretty bad. I’m just now, a week later, able to talk about it.

This week we have a great meeting lined up that you don’t want to miss. Our special guest speaker will be attorney James Steele. I met James a few months ago in a case where he was helping my tenants defend themselves against me. Not an easy thing for him to do considering the fact that I have been to court for Unlawful Detainer proceedings far more than most attorneys have. Fortunately we came to an agreement and the tenants ended up getting themselves caught back up. Since then they have been a pleasure to do business with.

James was a real nice guy as well.

I’ve been told that he will be coming to our meeting to discuss the new Virginia HUD mandate that requires you to rent to murders, child molesters, rapists, etc. If you don’t you can be charged with Fair Housing Violations. And if you do you will get sued by your neighbors when the child molester rapes the neighbors kid next door. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.

I wrote an article about it a couple months ago here.

This is going to be an interesting meeting. Come on out and hear James Steele’s take on this law and lets find out if he sees any angles that can be used to protect the neighborhood and your property while staying within the scope of the law.
