Me again dirt on Norfolk Financial corp.

member profile picture

I did a lot of research on this company who is suing

His name is Daniel W. Goldstone. He was disbarred in
2006 by the Supreme Judicial Court and can't practice
law for the next 8 years. He is not licensed to collect in the state of Massachusetts. He was sued by sears for $945,409 and dodged them for 5 years and eventually paid them only $89,000 according to the Supreme Judicial
Court ruling.

I found it funny that he has an employee who's name
is Maureen. I don't know her last name yet.
His lawyer is Maureen Forsyth, I don't know if there
is any relation.

all this information about him is here if anyone has
problems with this company.

If you do a search on his name or go to and do a search on Norfolk Financial Corp, you will find a load of information.

How much additional is it to file outside of small claims? It may be worth your time.

About $350 or more.

Can you save up for that much before the SOL expires?

Ahh but I used to live in the county where the suit was filed, I have simply moved. Do I still seek dismissal on those grounds?
And as a secondary thought - dismissal doesn't do much to fix my credit report, does it?

If you had moved before the suit was filed then yes you can. As to your secondary thought, it would make it more convenient to you to drive within the county you live in as opposed to them making you drive out of county. If they want to file suit against you make it hard on them. Besides the motion to dismiss for improper venue will show them you have some teeth to bite back with and that you know a thing or two about the judicial system. It might even make them think twice.

Ok perhaps I was unclear. I lived in CountyX until November. They served me in September. I moved to CountyY in November, and the case management conference was postponed until January.

Getting back there to argue about moving it is super inconvenient, but not impossible. They didn't file incorrectly, but I would definitely like to have it moved.

I would suggest to go ahead and motion to dismiss for improper venue. The worst that could happen is your motion gets denied.

It just keeps getting better I filed a complaint against Norfolk Financial with the division of banks, who licenses debt collectors. I got a letter in the mail today saying that it is beyond their control but they forwarded my complaint to the Attorney Generals office and they also sent it to the Federal Trade Commission. I am hoping that they pursue this further and take this company down.

How will this benefit me if they are shut down by the FTC and the AG? I can still sue I know that but would It help any?

Oh yes you can still sue. They will probably not shut them down but will access some hefty fines. Besides your still entitled to statutory damages.

Also, if they were to be shut down the business owner can still be held libel.

That's if the guy even pays if I win. He was to pay sears around $945,000 and only paid back $89,000. That's why he got disbarred.

He steals money and talks about people not paying their bills and sues them on a few hundred to a few thousand. Yet he is no better, what a hypocrite.

If I brought up in court about his past, would that help my case at all? I can't get in trouble for exposing information that is already out in the public and has been in the newspapers, can I?

It is also online and in court records.
