Prior to law school, Troy Doucet owned a mortgage firm, fighting tirelessly to save homeowners money. In 2004, Broker magazine featured him as its cover story when he proposed the mortgage industry eliminate junk fees from all mortgages. Columbus Business First ran a similar article on his efforts. Troy Doucet eliminated all junk fees from his company's loans early on, and grew the firm quickly. However, that endeavor ultimately caused him to defend foreclosure himself, and forced him to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection in 2005. That experience taught Mr. Doucet much about what banks and lenders are willing to do when foreclosing on a borrower's home. It solidified his interest in protecting consumers and fighting for their interests.
