Houston Lawyer James Rivera and Divorcee Spouse Piipar Rivera Are Real Scumbags Together

Lawyer James Rivera’s Harris County District Court case representation history is full of Divorces and Auto Vehicle Accidents. Not any more.

The Opportunists

LIT UPDATE; WEDNESDAY, OCT. 12, 2022

So Thievin’ attorney James Rivera and his co-conspirator wife non-suit on Monday their 11-day old lawsuit (and 4 days after LIT published this article), which is disposed of immediately by a welcoming Judge McFarland.

Does that mean that the Riveras unethical and criminal behavior is gonna be excused, because lawyer James Rivera is immune from prosecution or ethics violations as he’s part of the Ochlocracy club?

When You’re a Lawyer Watchin’ Clay Vilt, Erick DeLaRue, Jason Leboeuf and the rest of the Legal Bandits, along with their Civilian Fraudsters like Sandy Forsythe and Kevin Pawlowski  Stealin’ Homesteads with Fraudulent Transfers or worthless TREC sales contracts, you’ll get new blood with a desire for insatiable greed entering the arena – especially when the Judiciary are a proven part of the scam.

Let us introduce to you Houston lawyer James Rivera and his spouse, Piipar Sirrese Rivera, nee Allen, who’ve combined their talents, formed an LLC and as such have now joined the exclusive “Foreclosure Scam Squad Series” we’re publishing on LIT.

We call the Riveras opportunists because researchin’ James Rivera’s history of legal cases, he’s absent in federal court and the only cases in Harris County are very old, when he was a budding divorce lawyer. What he’s been doin’ since 2010 is a mystery, there’s only a couple of seizure cases on record.

As such, it appears a new spouse and a new strategy were implemented after the creation of their LLC in 2020, and the foreclosure case of Jankowiak is the second of two cases which both show the hallmarks of the foreclosure scam we’ve been highlighting on LIT.

Rivera came under the spotlight on our micro-blog at Midfirst.Mortgage, where he represented a pair of homeowners and Midfirst had their rogue lawyers at BDF Hopkins remove the case to federal court. Nothin’ greatly untoward thus far, but it’s accepted Shelley Hopkins likes to obtain a quick judgment with a premature motion to dismiss or similar. And in this case, the homeowner listed BDF Hopkins as a defendant, so we knew [AWOL] Mark Hopkins would appear, which he duly did.

However, BDF Hopkins didn’t get their judgment this case. Instead, the parties voluntarily agreed to dismiss the case. That was on June 24, 2022, granted by Judge Hanks.

We always swing back around to double-check our cases and see what’s happened post dismissal or judgment, and in this case, we discovered the HCAD data showing the property no longer in ownership by the homeowners, Pineda and Clark, but rather Wademar, LLC, owned by none other than the Riveras.

And that new information led us to revisit the exhibits in the Pineda and Clark lawsuit.

What we found was a TREC agreement, listing Wademar LLC as the buyer, and Piipar Rivera using an email which leads us to a website called Lone Star Home Buyers of Texas, owned and operated by Michael “Mike” Minuto of Mtm Accelerated Holdings, LLC.

Piipar is apparently not only a Certified Physicians Assistant, she’s now become a licensed TREC Sales Agent since March of 2021 (and as such is to adhere to the code of ethics prescribed therein).

Clearly BDF Hopkins knew exactly what was goin’ on when the voluntary dismissal was “negotiated”.

The timeline shows;

Rivera’s TREC Contract [to pick up note balance of around $261k] on home worth $410k per Zillow, signed April 28, 2022.

Harris County case filed by Rivera; April 29, 2022

Removed to Federal Court; May 26, 2022

June 9, 2022; HCAD records show the Riveras company, Wademar, LLC as the owner

Case Voluntarily Dismissed and Granted same day by Judge Hanks; June 24, 2022

Zillow Listed Home for Sale; July 6, for $405k

Note: with a loan repayment of around $261k quoted by BDF Hopkins for Midfirst (in May), this would equate to $144k return on investment for the Riveras.

Zillow Listing Removed; Aug. 13, 2022.

LIT Questions

Can Midfirst confirm they have received full payment in satisfaction of the $261k+ payoff due for the mortgage note from the Riveras or their LLC?

Can Texas Legal Ethics and the State Bar of Texas confirm the representation by lawyer James Rivera violates 1.06 Conflict of Interest: General Rule  – as you surely cannot say that $144k ROI by stealin’ the property as the buyer is not adverse to the distressed and emotionally challenged homeowners and sellers?

Same goes for licensed TREC Sales Agent and co-conspirator in the theft, Piipar Rivera.

And now they’ve had success with the first theft, Rivera is filin’ again in Harris County District Court on September 29, 2022 re the Jankowiaks. Despite the Exhibits not being present in the court, LIT can safely recognize this is the same theft being perpetrated against a financially distressed ‘young couple’ who fear their credit will be ruined unless they enter into this forced sales contract.

JANKOWIAK, RICHARD vs. GUILD MORTGAGE

 (Court 133, JUDGE JACLANEL M. MCFARLAND)

SEP 29, 2022 | REPUBLISHED BY LIT: OCT 6, 2022

Jankowiak Residence: 5215 Rivertree Ln, Spring, TX 77379 ($264k)

Notably missing from the Harris County District Court filing is “Exhibit 2”, the TREC contract, but that doesn’t stop the TRO being granted immediately by Judge McFarland.

RE: 202263076 – JANKOWIAK, RICHARD vs. GUILD MORTGAGE (Court 133)

Do you have a copy of the Exhibit 2, with the righteous buyer per E-F you could send to us along with perhaps the rest of the missing exhibits, like an affidavit, or two from this young couple?

Laws In Texas first started as an independent investigative blog about the Financial Crisis and how the Banks and Government are colluding against the citizens and homeowners of the State of Texas, relying upon a system of #FakeDocs and post-crisis legal precedents, specially created by the Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit to foreclose on homeowners around this great State. We are not lawyers. We do not offer legal advice. That stated, LIT's Blog has grown tremendously during the three or so years it has been operating and our reach is now nationwide as we expand via our micro-blogs in various states.
