Not too many folks in TCPAland have been around here as long as I have. Martin Jaszczuk is one of the few that can also lay claim to have been an original pioneer in this fertile land of ours. He joins the Womble Bond Dickinson Ramble to discuss his career arc–from a Locke Lord partner with the audacity and vision to build (probably) the first TCPA-specific defense team at a national law firm–to the captain of his own ship at Jaszczuk, P.C.
Before we get to the interview, however, the 12th Edition of the Ramble podcast will treat listeners to a break down of the 6th Circuit’s new decision in Parchman v. SLM Corp., No. 17-5968, 2018 U.S. App. LEXIS 20194 (6th Cir. Jul. 20, 2018) holding that TCPA claims survive death, a discussion of Pagano v. Quicken Loans, Case No. 3:18-cv-117-J-20JBT, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 120933 (M.D. Fl. July 19, 2018), that sees the Czar sending telepathic messages to Quicken’s counsel, and of course a discussion of Jay Edelson’s latest good fortune by way of the Seventh Circuit awarding him the biggest TCPA class action attorneys fee award in history.
Once Martin gets going though its hard to slow him down, however. Listen to the podcast (found here) to learn:
-What’s with that picture of him standing on the conference room table?
-Why did he leave a well-respected national firm to start his own shop?
-When did Martin decide that TCPAland was the place for him?
-What was it like as one of the original inhabitants of TCPAland during the sleepy early days of TCPA litigation?
-What are Martin’s thoughts on ACA and the FCC’s Public Notice?
-What does Martin think about the Stopping Bad Robocalls Act?
-What are Martin’s thoughts on the recycled number database and wrong number class actions?
-And most importantly, is Martin heading out to the TCPAland mansion party next year?
Lots of fun and great information and breakdowns of all the recent TCPA developments. Well worth a listen.
