One guy that stands out is attorney James Felton. I have been lucky to have the support of several industry attorneys but in the past Mr. Felton has elected to stay low key, he gave me permission to use him in this post.
It started when he needed some assistance with a particular case, As always (and still will be) I was happy to assist anyone I can in any way, particularly when they are working to right a wrong. Whenever I have needed advice Mr Felton has always been generous with his assistance, like I do so many other readers here I consider him a friend.
Attorneys are the butts of jokes and what not but James Felton is not the kind that gives them a bad name, he is the exact opposite. If anyone should need an attorney who is familiar with the industry, fair and honest and non judgemental I HIGHLY recommend him. he isn’t an attention seeker, he puts his nose to the grindstone and he gets results. He has never once steered me wrong, matter of fact I have a ton of respect for him, so much so that if he were on The FSC Board of Directors I would happily work with him, but I don’t think that will happen because I don’t see him as being comfortable in The FSC, that’s just my opinion of course but if he were I believe he could make The FSC worthy of a second chance….That is how much I respect him.
Thank You brother for all the help over the years and for allowing me to point it out.
Another is Sabrina Deep, we sometimes disagree but I hold her in very high regard, like me she speaks her mind and doesn’t back down, I respect that. She stands her ground with me yet I have never thought of her as anything but a friend, and I know the feeling is likewise. More girls like Sabrina in this biz would be a game changer. She was offered an authors login to this blog but declined, I understand her reasoning but like Rodney If I could hand pic my successors Sabrina would be among them. When the lawsuit happened she made an INCREDIBLY generous offer, one that actually brought tears to my eyes, that is not easily done. Sabrina you know what I am speaking of, Thank You.
Thank You for allowing me to say how much you guys have meant to me. and you all know it isn’t just Sabrina and James, it’s all of you but I have written about y’all before…again though Thank You all, I have been blessed with so many friends that I have never met yet I know they are true friends, it may be a new idea thanks to the internet but real friends can be real friends even without having met face to face. Most of you get it, prolly all of you….That is what I will miss most…please stay in touch I treasure you guys, If anyone sets up an open forum I will participate.
But I digress, James and Sabrina…this one’s for you!
