Background Information - Edward H. Smith
Ed is a 1970 graduate of Dartmouth College with a life-long career as an independent business consultant and due process advocate.. In the early 1980s, Ed presented a seminar at the TECHNOLOGY/IMPEX New Inventions and Products Expo at Monroeville, PA hosted in cooperation with the US Department of Commerce. Also in the 1980s, Ed's business group was offered the opportunity to help develop and deliver a small business management short course at the University of New Hampshire. His work history also included the development and marketing of a derivative application of one of an earlier database software (R:BASE). From 1991 to 1995, Ed represented a group of Pacific Rim private investors with respect to buying some properties from failed banks as well as evaluating venture capital investments. This work involved the production of extensive documentation and research with respect to financing proposals and private placements.
As part of his small business consulting activities, Ed conducted a great deal of research into the proliferation of unfair, deceptive, and unreasonable business practices facing American consumers. As a result his experience, many of Ed's clients have recently saved very substantial amounts of money through a host of strategies in the wake of the national housing crisis and the 2007 recession that followed; especially with respect to foreclosure defense.
It should be noted that Ed is also intimately familiar with the civil legal process and its relationship to the self-serving interests of political factions and special interests; and the excessive costs and expenses of litigation that simply can not be afforded by a vast majority of American consumers, business owners, and taxpayers. For this reason, Ed has also helped many clients get organized and prepared in order to dramatically reduce the legal costs associated with being thrust into the legal arena.
At this point in history, however, Ed believes that we are faced with a set of circumstances which dwarf the bank and market failures of the late '80s and early '90s; and which may be unparalleled in U.S. history. For this reason, he is currently spear-heading the expansion of The Due Process Advocate; a newsletter-styled publication distributed via free email subscriptions. The express purposes of The Due Process Advocate are to: (a) to expose and stop the proliferation of "government endorsed" actions and policies designed to remove due process rights from the common person to serve private interests and political agendas, and (b) to "arm" all Americans with the necessary insight, information and resources to protect their own well-being and property as envisioned by the 5th and 14th Amendments to the United States Constitution.
