Get to know Ronald Houchins
I am a former attorney with over 30 years in legal practice at several small law firms, including, but not limited to, Kaufman & Houchins, Kaufman, Houchins & Ferdinand, Houchins & Stewart, P.A. and Ronald W. Houchins, P.A. In addition to my litigation duties, I was the managing partner in the firm responsible for the recruitment, hiring and supervision of all firm employees. Prior to going into private practice, I worked as the head of the consumer law unit for Broward County Legal Aid Service. In that role I also had recruitment and supervisory duties for the consumer law unit. I have also had substantial experience as a Human Resource Manager first for Ameridebt, Inc. and later for the American Consumer Credit Alliance. In those positions I was responsible for the hiring, firing, orientation and training of all consumer credit counselors. While with Ameridebt, Inc. I increased the staff from less than 35 employees to almost 100 consumer credit counselors and increased monthly revenues five-fold, from $50,000.00 per month to over $250,000.00 per month in just a 90 day period. I have excellent communication and public speaking skills and I am a former President of my Toastmasters Club in Coral Springs, Florida. I am experienced in large group presentations. I also have superior people skills. The combination of experience in law, human resource, training, education and related areas makes me the most qualified candidate for this position. I also had substantial teaching experience and have taught at Broward Community College, Coconut Creek, FL, Phoenix University, Fort Lauderdale, FL and Keiser Career Institute, Pembroke Pines, FL as well as teaching experience on the secondary level, head start, and adult education. Areas of legal expertise and experience include, but are not necessarily limit to, commercial litigation, real estate, consumer protection, business law, bankruptcy, labor law and related areas of law. For the last several years I have been helping pro se litigants in foreclosure defense, offense, bankruptcy and credit restoration.
