CWN was founded by Attorney and former prosecutor Chris Hoyer out of frustration over the lack of meaningful help for homeowners trapped in the mortgage meltdown. After investigating big mortgage companies who created the sub-prime mess for several years, it became clear homeowners would bear the brunt of the financial hardship, especially as many began losing their homes to foreclosure. That gave birth to CWN’s first major grassroots campaign to help homeowners called “Produce the Note.” Click here to watch Chris’ original video urging homeowners to fight back.
From “Produce the Note” to drug company hypocrisy to finding out which airline is the safest, CWN is here to educate consumers in an age of overwhelming corporate greed. We hope you’ll come back often and find useful information to help you in your everyday life.
The James Hoyer Law Firm provides resources to make the operation of CWN possible.
