SPB’s Unprecedented Podcast

Welcome to a Truly Unprecedented Legal Podcast

Episode 5:  Morgan & Morgan Lawyers In Studio to Talk TCPA Shop

Guest (IN STUDIO): Tav Gomez and Frank Kerney–head of Morgan & Morgan’s Consumer Protection Department


Record date: May 2, 2019

Drop date: May 7 2019

If there is one firm that has cashed in the most from the explosion of TCPA litigation over the last few years it is surely Morgan & Morgan.

Billing themselves as the largest plaintiff’s law firm in the world, Morgan & Morgan’s aggressive consumer protection department has boasted nearly 10% of all TCPA filings over the last 4 years. Their lawyers have single-handedly made the Middle District of Florida ground zero for the TCPA explosion and have recently expanded their footprint into Georgia, Tennessee and even far flung jurisdictions like Michigan and California. And as the firm transitions toward a greater focus on class litigation the near “limits” resources available to Morgan & Morgan make it a dangerous “go the distance” adversary that everyone needs to take seriously.

In a revealing interview with the head of Morgan & Morgan’s consumer protection department– Tav Gomez– the Unprecedented podcast team unpackages all the big TCPA developments and explore the consumer bar’s perspective on matters such as the ATDS definition and the impact of AAPC, striking down part of the TCPA.

Episode 4:  Former Rep Joe. Crowley (D. N.Y.) and Yitzchak Zelman

Guest (IN STUDIO): Former Rep. Joe Crowley


Guest (Powerline): Yitzchak Zelman


Record date: April 18, 2019

Drop date: April 23 2019

The fourth episode of Unprecedented is completely jammed packed.  First, former Rep. Joe Crowley (D. N.Y.)– a man who spent many of his 20 years in Congress as part of Democratic leadership– joined the Unprecedented podcast IN STUDIO this week. We discussed his rise into politics, his time in Congress and his decision to join Squire Patton Boggs. Most importantly, however, he gives us an expert-eye view of TRACED–the startling expansion of the TCPA working its way swiftly through Congress— and explains how SPB’s policy team can assist clients interested in assuring that their concerns about the enactment are heard–before it is too late.

Then we talk with Yitzchak Zelman — the biggest name in TCPAWorld that you may not have ever heard (or know how to pronounce.) He was lead counsel for Mr. Reyes in Reyes v. Lincoln Financial ServicesHe was lead counsel for Ms. Pinkus in Pinkus v. Siruis XM Radio And he partly avenged those losses in his big recent wins in Jiminez– rejecting a good faith defense for wrong number phone calls— and N.L. v. Credit One— a trial victory, the first of his career.

The third episode of Unprecedented is absolutely groundbreaking as we speak with the CEOs of the two most recognized robocall tracking indexes in the world– Alex Quilici of YouMail (publisher of the Robocall Index) and Alex Algard of Hiya (publisher of the Robocall Radar.) In a remarkable first-of-its-kind exchange, these CEOs  hash out what a robocall really is, how tracking consumer behavior can help us better understand the scale and appropriate response to the robocall epidemic, and how advances in technology and sophisticated algorithms are being leveraged in the private sector to bring an end to this catastrophic robocall rise. We also fact-check the statements made by the NCLC regarding robocall volumes to Congress in an interview recorded the same day the testimony took place.  Wow!
