On this edition of War Story Wednesdays, San Francisco trial attorney Christopher Hanson talks about a court case where the agent for the lender, who was a licensed real estate broker, was accused of making a usurious loan. (Adapted from Bock v. California Capital Loans, 216 Cal.App.4th 264)

By Christopher Hanson. I’m an experienced trial lawyer, not just a litigator. I’m not afraid of (and actually enjoy) being in a courtroom.  I’ve been called ingenious, tenacious, and strategic.  I’ll take those accolades

  1. Love these segments each week. Keep up the good work!

  2. This is helpful, though still quite complicated. My question is, if California's usury laws cap interest rates at 10%, what about all those 12 to 16% loans in the 1970's and 1980's? I lived there during that time, and the interest on the loan for my new construction house was 12-5/8% in 1985, and that was considered a good rate. As a Nevada and California real estate broker, living in Nevada, these videos help me to stay in touch with what is happening in my former State. Thanks.
