If you are thinking about dealing with this Jimmie L. J. Brown, Jr., run.  He is not only incompetant with atrocious spelling probems, but morallly bankrupt.  Get this:  The guy has bad credit and needs a house.  I help him and coordinate having an investor buy his house for him.  I did him a great favor and helped him when no one else would.  When it comes time to refinance the house he decides I am responsible for a $4,300 prepayment penalty and sues.  I hire an Attorney named Luro Taylor to defend me.  Jimmie Brown becomes real friendly with my attorney.   A hearing come up on my case and my attorney does not notify me of the hearing.  Jimmie Brown gets a default judgement and inflates the $4,500 to $32,000.  My attorney feels guilty and wants to be square with God and tells me that Jimmie Brown bribed him and offered $5,000 not to tell me about the hearing as there is no way Jimmie Brown could win the case.  I asked Luro Taylor to put it in his own handwriting if it's the truth.  I have the letter in Luro Taylor's own handwriting where he admits he didn't tell me about the hearing because he was bribed by Jimmie Brown.  I showed the letter to judges and attorneys - everyone is disgusted.  Taylor would up losing his license for admitting wrong doing.  But Mr. Jimmie Brown of course denied it and so he still runs around.  I know of many people Jimmie Brown has cheated with his "Trust Work" which is appalling.  I recommend that you file a report on Ripoff Report dot com.  If enough people do we can bring him to justice or at least slow down the rate at which he cheats people.  This guy is really bad.

Barry P**** Should Be Jailed!

AUTHOR: James - (USA)

This guy is a scam artist of the worst kind. He uses other people to scam money from his victims and the State of Texas does nothing but watch the complaints and let him steal more! TREC did nothing to him after he acted as broker and lender on the same deals. The Feds did nothing to stop him from stealing people's credit and savings and the Harris County DA is worthless! So Go Barry, keep stealing because you found a State where you can pull all the scams you want with no reprisal.

Jimmie Brown the Broke Attorney

AUTHOR: Barry - (U.S.A.)

Jimmie Brown is so broke that he has nothing else to do with his time other than harrass people.

Mr. Brown you don't have to find me.  You know where I live.  You know you are wrong.  You were broke when I hired you ad you are barely getting by now.  May the world know that you are in very poor financial condition and hoping that you can harrass people and make money by being a leach on society.  Good luck.  
You're not getting any money out of me.   I financed you house for you because you had bad credit.  I have already helped you enough.   You messed with my secretary; you blackmailed my clients; get over it.  You already did enough damage.   Research Jimmie L.J. Brown on the internet and see who all he has cheated.

Barry Powell - No Matter Where You Run I Will Find You

AUTHOR: Jimmie L. J. Brown, Jr. - (United States of America)

Mr. Powell,

As of this date, August 21, 2012, you have not paid the judgment against you.  You can besmirch my name, change homes and addresses - but Barry, I will always find you.  Please look to your mail and answer the discovery being sent to you.  If you fail to do so, I will not hesitate to seek to have you held in contempt.

You can hide in property under someone else's name Barry - but eventually, I will get my money back from you Barry.

Jimmie Brown Attorney Is a Crook

AUTHOR: Barry - (U.S.A.)

Plain and simple.  My attorney confessed in writing and swore that Jimmie Brown bribed him into not telling me about a scheduled hearing date so that Jimmie Brown could get a default judgment.

Telling the truth cost Luro Taylor his license.  Jimmie Brown is still ripping people off  End of Story.

Response to Barry Powell Complaint

AUTHOR: Jimmie L. J. Brown, Jr. - (United States of America)

Mr. Powell was sued for breach of contract, violation of the DTPA, and for having committed acts of fraud and misrepresentation and negligence.

Review of both the Harris County County Clerk and District Clerk web sites will evince several lawsuits filed against Mr. Powell.  Some did not go to fruition, while others did.  I did not stop.   Unfortunately, I found out AFTER DEALING WITH MR. POWELL, that he was not an honest person. 

Mr. Powell's history with Texas Real Estate Commission shows:  Agreed reprimand of broker license, entered June 15, 1999; Agreed administrative penalty of $1,250.00, entered June 15, 1999.

As of this date, Mr. Powell, who recently recently returned to 'active status' as of June 25, 2011, had an 'expired' real estate license read 'expired' since June 30, 2011.  In recent post judgment discovery, he represented he was not doing business, while his website and current records show that he is (1) doing business as "First Capital Realty" with a business address:  9704 Fair Brook Way, Pearland, Texas 77584.

In Cause No. 824,790 - County Court at Law No. 1, the Court granted judgment Defendants, Barry Powell and Guaranteed Approval Program, Inc., jointly and severally, in the sum of TWENTY-SEVEN THOUSAND EIGHT HUNDRED EIGHTY-THREE DOLLARS AND 35/100 ($27,883.35), as well as prejudgment interest on $27,883.35at an annual rate of 8.5%, and post judgment interest on the entire sum at the annual rate of 8.5%.

The following facts are relevant:

 a.  On or about November 8, 2004, Luro Taylor, for Defendants Barry Powell and Guaranteed Approval Program, Inc., filed to the lawsuit filed.

 b. On July 11, 2005, this matter was set for hearing and a copy of same was mailed to  Luro C. Taylor.  This order was mailed December 27, 2004.

c.  Due to Mr. Powell's failure to respond to discovery and admissions, filed, on or about January 26, 2005, a motion for discovery sanctions and Motion to Deem Answers Admitted.  Please note, once admissions are overdue and no response has been served, it is not necessary for the requesting party to file a motion to ask the court to deem unanswered requests for admissions admitted.  TRCP 198.2(c), they were automatically deemed.

d.  No response to interrogatories, production and/or admissions were ever received or filed in this cause from Mr. Powell, which has been his consistent problem.  The admissions were deemed as a matter of law on December 29, 2004.  As such, by the date of the hearing, February 10, 2004, 43 days later, the admissions were already deemed.

 e.  At hearing on February 10, 2005, Mr. Powell agreed to pass the hearings on both motions to pursue Alternative Dispute Resolution, requested by Petitioners.  Mr. Taylor, for Mr. Powell, requested that Respondents agree to undeem the admission.  Respondents refused.

 f. Per the agreement of the parties, this Court ordered ADR to occur within 30 days from February 10, 2005.  At ADR Petitioners were again informed that their discovery responses were overdue and that their admissions had been deemed.

 g.  Mediation proved unsuccessful and both the motion for discovery sanctions and Respondents Motion to Deem Answers Admitted were set for March 31, 2005.

 h. On March 30, 2005, neither of the Mr. Powell, nor his attorney, appeared for hearing and default orders compelling discovery and deeming admissions.  As a result of Mr. Powell's failure to produce the interrogatories and production by April 15, 2005, the pleadings of Mr. Powell were ordered struck.

 i.  Mr. Powell never appealed, this, but tried ta petition for bill of review - which was denied.

 j. On July 11, 2005, this case was called for trial.  Mr. Taylor requested a continuance due to conflict, he was in a criminal trial in the 232nd Judicial District Court, Harris County, and this matter was re-set for July 18, 2005.

 k. On July 14, 2005, the undersigned attorney and Respondents caused notice of the hearing to be sent to Mr. Taylor for July 18, 2004.  In another case in which Mr. Powell was a witness and attended hearing, Mr. Taylor represented an associate of Mr. Powell.  The undersigned, an attorney, caused notice of the hearing to be given to Mr. Taylor for July 22, 2004, 11:00 a.m on July 14, 2005.

l.  On July 18, 2005, this case was called for trial.  Neither Petitioner Barry Powell nor Petitioner Guaranteed Approval Program, Inc., appeared.  However, Mr. Taylor made an appearance for both.

m. On July 18, 2005, this Court entered judgment for Jimmie L. J. Brown, Jr. and LaRita V. Lockhart-Brown, to recover from Petitioners, Barry Powell and Guaranteed Approval Program, Inc., jointly and severally, in the sum of TWENTY-SEVEN THOUSAND EIGHT HUNDRED EIGHTY-THREE DOLLARS AND 35/100 ($27,883.35), as well as prejudgment interest on $27,883.35at an annual rate of 8.5%, and post judgment interest on the entire sum at the annual rate of 8.5%. 

n. The court directed that an order to be prepared and entered by the parties for July 22, 2005.

o. On July 22, 2005, the undersigned appeared and presented the judgment to the court.

p.Neither  Barry Powell, Petitioners Guaranteed Approval Program, Inc., nor their attorney, Luro C.         Taylor  appeared. 

q.  This Court entered judgment against Petitioners July 22, 2005.

r.   On July 22, 2005, in the Court, the undersigned attorney delivered to Mr. Luro Taylor and to Mr. Barry Powell, each, a copy of a certified copy of the July 18, 2005, judgment which had been signed by the court that morning.  Mr. Barry Powell took the judgment, read the judgment and placed the judgment in his pocket.  This occurred on July 22, 2004, slightly before 11:00 a.m.
Again, Mr. Powell learned on or about September 8, 2005 of the judgment against him.

s.  During the month of September,  2005, (September 30, 2005) the undersigned made written request for payment from to Barry Powell and Guaranteed Approval Program, Inc. regarding the July 22, 2005 judgment.  A response from Mr. Powell was received October 3, 2005.

t.  On October 3, 2005, Petitioner Barry Powell responded to the demand and judgment indicating that the judgment was illegitimate, obtained  as a result of no notice and that he was not provided with notice or opportunity to appeal October 3, 2005, and demanded that Respondents remove their judgment.

u.  In response to this demand for payment, Barry Powell called the my office and threatened to report the undersigned to the State Bar of Texas for bribery.  On October 4, 2005, the undersigned responded to the threat indicating that he should do whatever he felt necessary, hence the undersigned was not interfering.

v.   On October 20, 2005, I received notice from the State Bar of Texas that a complaint had been filed by Petitioners Barry Powell October 7, 2005, that same did not allege any professional misconduct on the part of the undersigned and had been classified as an inquiry and dismissed. 

w.  As part of Barry Powells complaint with the State Bar of Texas, he provided the sworn statement of Attorney Luro Taylor, which alleged that the undersigned: 1. had an agreement with Petitioners attorney; 2. that there was an agreement concerning the admissions; and 3. other misconduct on the part of the undersigned attorney.  (It should be noted that I denied ever having any agreement with Mr. Taylor, other than to proceed to ADR, which was reduced to a motion, order and filed with the Court.)

x.   On or about November 7th, 2005, the Constable Precinct #4 gave notice to Mr. Powell of the judgment and intent to levy against certain properties of Mr. Powell.  Unbeknownst to me, Barry Powell had allowed the properties to go to foreclosure to avoid payment on the judgment. 

y.  On December 21, 2005, I received notice from the Board of Disciplinary Appeals, that Petitioners Barry Powell had appealed the decision of the State Bar of Texas and that they have affirmed the dismissal by the State Bar of Texas.

z.  On December 29, 2005, Petitioners Barry Powell re-asserted his grievance with the State Bar of Texas, which reaffirmed its previous position and dismissed the complaint of Petitioners Barry Powell.

aa.  On January 5, 2006, Petitioners Barry Powell re-asserted his grievance with the State Bar of Texas, which reaffirmed its previous position and dismissed the complaint of Petitioners Barry Powell.

Mr. Powell has consistently avoided discovery and truthful disclosure.

While I encourage the First Amendment, the admissions entered against Mr. Powell (as between us forever) refute the assertions of Mr. Powell.  I request that the defamatory and libellous statements be detracted.
