On December 20, 2021, the Supreme Court of Florida entered an Order of Suspension, suspending Kenneth Edward Walton, II from the practice of law.

See The Florida Bar v. Walton, No. SC21-243, 2021 WL 6013465 (Fla. Dec. 20, 2021) [ECF No. 1].

The suspension was predicated on an uncontested report of the referee, which was based upon an Unconditional Guilty Plea for Consent Judgment. (See [ECF No. 2]).

Rule 9(b) of the Rules Governing the Admission, Practice, Peer Review, and Discipline of Attorneys, Local Rules of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida, provides that “[a]n attorney . . . who shall be suspended . . . on consent . . . from the bar of any state . . . while an investigation into allegations of misconduct is pending shall . . . cease to be permitted to practice before this Court and be stricken from the roll of attorneys admitted to practice before this Court.” Id. (alterations added).

Under these circumstances involving suspension on consent, service of an order to show cause is unnecessary, and the attorney may be immediately suspended.

In accordance with Rule 9(b) and the inherent authority of this Court to oversee officers admitted to membership in its bar, see Chambers v. NASCO, Inc., 501 U.S. 32, 43 (1991) (“[A] federal court has the power to control admission to its bar and to discipline attorneys who appear before it.” (alteration added)),

IT IS ORDERED that Mr. Walton is suspended from practice in this Court, effective immediately.

Mr. Walton may not resume the practice of law before this Court until reinstated by court order. See Rule 12(a).

The Clerk of Court shall strike this attorney from the roll of attorneys eligible to practice in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida and shall also immediately revoke the attorney’s CM/ECF password.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Mr. Walton shall advise the Clerk of Court of all pending cases before this Court in which he is counsel or co-counsel of record.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk of Court attempt to serve by certified mail a copy of this Order of Suspension upon Mr. Walton at his court record and Florida Bar addresses.

DONE AND ORDERED in Miami, Florida, this 19th day of January, 2022.

The Florida Bar File Nos.

2019-70,668 (11P)
2020-70,037 (11P)



2020-70,204 (11P)


The Florida Bar, complainant, files this Complaint against Kenneth Edward Walton II, respondent, pursuant to the Rules Regulating The Florida Bar and alleges:

1. Respondent is and was at all times mentioned herein a member of The Florida Bar admitted on September 29, 1999, and is subject to the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court of Florida.

2. Respondent practiced law in Miami-Dade County, Florida, at all times material to this complaint.

3. The Eleventh Judicial Circuit Grievance Committee P found probable cause to file this complaint pursuant to Rule 3-7.4, of the Rules Regulating The Florida Bar, and this complaint has been approved by the presiding member of that committee.



4. Salenna Burgess originally retained respondent for a file review related to a bankruptcy matter. Respondent completed the file review promptly and well by all accounts.

5. In or around April 2018, Ms. Burgess decided to retain respondent to handle her bankruptcy matter, following a bad experience with her prior attorney and based on recommendations respondent made during the file review.

6. Ms. Burgess paid respondent $6,000.00 for the representation.

7. Although communication was good at the outset of the representation, respondent became more difficult to reach as time went by.

8. On June 7, 2018, respondent forwarded correspondence dealing with Ms. Burgess’ matter to the client.

9. Roughly three months later, Ms. Burgess emailed respondent on September 5, 2018, requesting an update on the status of her case.

10. When she did not hear from respondent for about ten days, Ms. Burgess followed up with him on September 13, 2018.

11. Respondent replied that same day and represented to Ms.Burgess that he would work on her case over the weekend. Notably, at that time, respondent apologized to Ms. Burgess for not being more prompt in his reply “or communicating better.” He stated in his email to her that his lack of communication was “unacceptable, inexcusable, and embarrassing.”

12. Afterward, respondent ceased communication with Ms. Burgess, even though Ms. Burgess emailed him on October 2, 2018; October 5, 2018; October 9, 2018; and October 22, 2018.

13. Months later, respondent finally replied to Ms. Burgess on December 21, 2018. Respondent wanted to discuss with his client what he characterized as “everything that has and hasn’t happened” in her case.

14. Following that email, Ms. Burgess and respondent spoke about her case. According to her bar grievance, Ms. Burgess said respondent apologized to her for what respondent described as his own unacceptable behavior.

15. Ms. Burgess communicated with respondent once more in January 2019. However, at the end of the month, when Ms. Burgess resumed requesting updates on her case, communication ceased until March 12, 2019.

16. In the March 12, 2019, email, respondent forwarded an email to Ms. Burgess regarding her bankruptcy case and stated he was on his way to court. He promised to download and email the docket to her that day.

17. When Ms. Burgess filed her grievance with the bar on May 7, 2019, she had still not heard from respondent regarding her case.

18. On January 15, 2020, respondent provided a statement to the bar where he admitted he “initially did a poor job of helping her understand that the work was completed and explaining the meaning of the all of the final documents we received back from the bankruptcy court.”

19. Additionally, respondent stated Ms. Burgess “successfully completed her 60 months in Chapter 13, however she could not enjoy it as soon as it happened because of my poor communication.”

20. Significantly, in that same January 15, 2020, communication to the bar, respondent stated he was medically incapacitated for the majority of his representation of Ms. Burgess. He stated to the bar, “[t]o this day, I am still under doctor’s care for one of the conditions that seriously affected how I represented Ms. Burgess and will be treating for the rest of my life it appears. Although, I am lightyears ahead of where I was most of the past two years, I am still improving as each week passes.”

21. By reason of the foregoing, respondent has violated the following Rules Regulating The Florida Bar: 4-1.3 (Diligence); (4-1.4 Communication); and 4-1.16(a) (When Lawyer Must Decline or Terminate Representation).



22. Respondent was hired as the closing agent by the buyer for the preparation of documents related to a real estate transaction for 429 NW 43rd Street in Miami, Florida.

23. Sandor Urban was the realtor on behalf of the seller in this transaction.

24. Mr. Urban and his client were notified of the closing date, time and location. They went to respondent’s office at the agreed-upon time on or around October 18, 2019, at 4:00 p.m.

25. Respondent’s staff was unaware of the appointment.

Nonetheless, Mr. Urban and his client waited until 5:30 p.m., at which point office staff asked them to leave since the office was closing.

26. Respondent’s paralegal told them to wait in the lobby. Mr. Urban and his clients waited until 7:00 p.m., at which point the sellers decided to leave.

27. Respondent never made it to the agreed-upon appointment for the scheduled closing.

28. Shortly thereafter, Mr. Urban and the sellers were able to speak to respondent, who agreed to send the seller the documents to be signed and notarized. The seller printed and executed the documents.

29. As the closing agent, respondent was responsible for making sure all the funds were disbursed to finalize the transaction. Respondent was also responsible for sending Mr. Urban his commission as part of his duties as closing agent, as well as creating a closing statement, which turned out to be rife with errors.

30. Respondent completed the closing on October 18, 2018.

31. On October 22, 2018, respondent sent what appeared to be Mr.

Urban’s commission to him only to stop payment on the check minutes after Mr. Urban’s office received it.

32. Shortly after the closing, it was discovered that the closing statement had errors. Respondent overpaid the seller by approximately
$6,586.00, the approximate amount due Sandor Urban. Respondent produced the final corrected closing statement in May 2020, approximately 18 months later.

33. Between April 14, 2020, and August17, 2020, Mr. Urban sent no fewer than 14 requests for an update on the status of his payment for commission. Several of these emails also requested updates about the status of respondent’s corrections to the seller’s closing statement.

34. Respondent sporadically replied to Mr. Urban’s desperate requests eight times. Notably, respondent rarely gave updates other than to excuse himself by saying he was in the process of completing some task.

35. Respondent used the back and forth of the emails between himself and Mr. Urban to delay and string Mr. Urban along while he waited for payment for work, which had been completed, he was entitled to, and that respondent was obligated to provide.

36. Respondent never provided the payment to Mr. Urban.

37. Instead, Mr. Urban, through his office, requested his commission directly from the seller when Mr. Urban failed to keep his promises.

38. Ultimately, Mr. Urban received his commission from the seller after he sent his own demand letter.

39. Additionally, respondent failed to maintain technical trust accounting records. The bar served a subpoena upon respondent requesting the following documents covering the period of time between January 1, 2018, to February 29, 2020: copies of bank statements for two Bank of America bank accounts; copies of trust accounting records required by Rule 5-1.2 of the Rules Regulating The Florida Bar; copies of HUD-1 statements and balance sheets for all real estate transactions; and a complete copy of respondent’s closing file for the purchase/sale of the property that is the subject of this complaint.

40. Respondent’s response to the bar’s subpoena was deficient. He did not provide trust account bank statements and cancelled checks for January 1, 2018 through February 29, 2020; any client ledger cards, any cash receipts and disbursement journals; any trust account bank reconciliations; and any reconciliations of the trust account bank balances to the individual client ledger card balances.

41. Respondent is required on a monthly basis to maintain the records outlined in paragraph 36 of this complaint, and he failed to do so.

42. By reason of the foregoing, respondent has violated the following Rules Regulating The Florida Bar: 4-4.4(a) (In representing a client, a lawyer shall not use means that have no substantial purpose other than to embarrass, delay, or burden a third or knowingly use methods of obtaining evidence that violate the legal rights of such a person); and 5-1.2 (Failure to maintain technical trust accounting records).



43. Dmitri Mikhailov and Maritza Lagos retained respondent in or about August 2018 to remove a lien over a Sunny Isles Beach, Florida, property for which they were being charged a daily $500.00 fine.

44. Respondent charged a $5,000.00 fee but failed to perform the agreed-upon services.

45. Ultimately, Mr. Mikhailov ended up owing the City of Sunny Isles Beach $700,000.00 in daily fines because of respondent’s failure to pursue the matter at all, let alone in a timely matter.

46. Between October 15, 2018, and July 1, 2019, Mr. Mikhailov initiated correspondence requesting status updates with respondent no fewer than 15 times only to encounter silence on respondent’s end.

47. The 15th email from Mr. Mikhailov on July 1, 2019, stated that he would initiate a complaint with The Florida Bar due to respondent’s failure to communicate with him throughout the case.

48. The next day, on July 2, 2019, respondent replied to Mr. Mikhailov. In that email, respondent apologized to Mr. Mikhailov.

49. Incredibly, after apologizing, respondent inappropriately thanks his client “for your email versus responding in a different manner, such as waiting in the shadows near my house or office with a baseball bat and then using it.”

50. After the July 2, 2019, correspondence, respondent was asked to draft and mail a proposal to Mr. Mikhailov indicating how he plans to resolve the matter he was retained for. Additionally, Mr. Mikhailov requested that respondent forward all communications between Sunny Isles Beach and respondent.

51. Respondent was given a deadline of July 8, 2019, to provide this information. He never responded to Mr. Mikhailov’s request.

52. Shortly thereafter, Mr. Mikhailov requested updates on his case no fewer than seven more times between July 11, 2019, and September 23, 2019, with no response from respondent, save for one letter respondent sent to Mr. Mikhailov on or around August 9, 2019, related to a conversation between respondent and another party in the matter.

53. After August 2019, respondent did not speak to Mr. Mikhailov again.

54. In a January 15, 2020, letter to the bar, respondent stated that he “[agreed] with Mr. Mikhailov that he should receive a refund of the money tendered to me.”

55. Respondent in that letter to the bar also stated he suffered from “multiple medical conditions that rendered me unable to fully complete services and to stay in close communication with Mr. Mikhailov.”

56. However, respondent neither communicated any limitation to rendering services to his client nor withdrew from the representation.

57. By reason of the foregoing, respondent has violated the following Rules Regulating The Florida Bar: 4-1.3 (Diligence); 4-1.4 (Communication); 4-1.5 (Fees and Costs for Legal Services); and 4-1.16(a) (When Lawyer Must Decline or Terminate Representation).



58. Roy Collins retained respondent in or about June 2019 to represent him in a foreclosure defense case and to provide him with potential bankruptcy assistance.

59. Mr. Collins paid respondent a $5,000.00 retainer fee on June 18, 2019. Mr. Collins did not hear from respondent again until late August 2019.

60. Between August 10, 2019, and August 17, 2019, Mr. Collins attempted communication with respondent by calling his office and mobile phone, sending emails and text messages, and leaving several messages every day during that time period.

61. On August 16, 2019, Mr. Collins emailed respondent and terminated their relationship. He requested a refund in that email.

62. On August 21, 2019, respondent sent Mr. Collins a text message apologizing to him for being “out of pocket,” explaining that he had been “recovering from an injury.” He asked if he could call Mr. Collins around 8:00 p.m. that evening.

63. However, respondent did not call. Instead, respondent sent a text message to Mr. Collins at 10:39 p.m. with a promise to call the next day.

64. That was the last time Mr. Collins ever heard from respondent.

65. In a letter to the bar, dated February 27, 2020, respondent admits he did not communicate with Mr. Collins as he should have.

66. In that letter, respondent also admitted he was not healthy enough to represent Mr. Collins, stating that he “probably should not have accepted Mr. Collis [sic] case at that time [sic] I see that I was overly optimistic that I would soon make a full recovery.”

67. By reason of the foregoing, respondent has violated the following Rules Regulating The Florida Bar: 4-1.4 (Communication); 4-1.5 (Fees and Costs for Legal Services); and 4-1.16(a) (When Lawyer Must Decline or Terminate Representation).

WHEREFORE, The Florida Bar prays respondent will be appropriately disciplined in accordance with the provisions of the Rules Regulating The Florida Bar as amended.

Mortgage Servicer PHH Ocwen: Scammin’ Homeowners Since 2008, with Government and Judicial Approval

The mortgage servicing industry constantly refuses, misallocates or has some other reason for not crediting customers mortgages with the payment to induce foreclosure.



News 6, DEO save 72-year-old Titusville woman from foreclosure in home assistance glitch

‘This just made our Christmas,’ woman’s daughter says

DEC 13, 2022 | REPUBLISHED BY LIT: DEC 14, 2022

This known scheme to defraud citizens of their home and put them into foreclosure prematurely has been endorsed by the judiciary and government to aid the theft of affordable housing for the benefit of Wall St.

TITUSVILLE, Fla. – A 72-year-old Titusville woman and her daughter found themselves on the brink of foreclosure after Homeowner Assistance Funds issued by the Department of Economic Opportunity went missing.

Nilda Molina and her daughter, Millie Aguirre, contacted News 6 and Make Ends Meet after their mortgage company, NewRez C/O PHH Mortgage Services, issued a foreclosure notice the day before Thanksgiving.

“Not a single payment has been received by the mortgage company,”

Aguirre told News 6.

“I’m nervous, I feel like I’m worse off now (than) before I entered the program.”

Molina has lived in her Titusville home for nearly 30 years, and according to documents obtained by News 6, was approved for mortgage and utility funds for 18 months on July 13, 2022.

Aguirre said the DEO indicated the payments had been issued, but according to the mortgage company, the funds were never deposited into Mrs. Molina’s account.

The DEO confirmation letter said the payments “will be made directly to your service provider and may process at different times.”

News 6 contacted the DEO and a representative got to work immediately.

The money, all 6 months of missing mortgage payments, were issued Monday.

In an email to News 6, her daughter wrote in part,

“We got results. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! We could not have gotten this done without you. This just made our Christmas.”

During our interview, Aguirre said she and her mother felt News 6 would have the answer.

“The first thing we thought was we should come to Getting Results on Channel 6 and see if they could help us,”

Aguirre said.

“Here you are and I thank you so much for that.”

In a statement to News 6, DEO Press Secretary Leigh McGowan said in part,

“If homeowners are not seeing their awarded Florida HAF funds applied to their mortgage account, we encourage Florida HAF recipients to review their Florida HAF award letter. All award letters are emailed to Florida HAF recipients when they are initially awarded assistance.”

Each award letter states the name of the company to which the payment will be made.

If the name of the company in the award letter differs from the name of the company their mortgage payments are regularly sent to each month, the best course of action for Florida HAF recipients is to contact the Florida Homeowner Assistance Fund Customer Assistance Center for assistance at 833-987-8997, Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

A Message for Felon Francis Santa: We Cannot Be Bribed. Stop the Harassment

Once a person has been convicted of a felony, he or she can be considered a felon for life, according to the strict meaning of the word.



Dear Santa…..

DEC. 12., 2022

We’ve set aside your plethora of harassing emails and bribes for many months. Indeed, we have never contacted the ex-wife below, who is desperate to provide more unfavorable information about you, Francis “Frank” Santa.

But now your emails are becoming both incessant and threatening, which means we have to publish all the information for our own safety.

You are a convicted felon Francis “Frank” Santa. Considering your stalking behavior, that makes you a very dangerous and untrustworthy person.

We are stating in this public forum: cease and desist from your writings, threats and stop tryin’ to bribe us with “donations”  – which are not donations as they are based on LIF and LIT removing an article about you, which is based on the real truth, no bull.

And remember Francis Santa, you are the one who came charging at us with a takedown request for the Ringel’s, indicted in NYC.

In return, all we did was google you and your business to find out who we were dealin’ with.

That’s when we discovered the information about your criminal past, which was recovered from publicly accessible information.

LIF and LIT didn’t ‘destroy’ you Frank, you did that all by yourself.

Francis Frank Santa


I read with great interest your article on my former spouse – what you don’t know is that Mr. Santa is currently in arrears for child support in the amount of $196,000.

I can provide documentation for proof.

I find it quite amusing that this man cries poor mouth, continues to hide assets, resides in a gated community in Boca Raton and has started this bogus foundation.

Leopards do not change their spots –

You do realize he also spent 5 of a 15 year bid in NYS prison for a credit repair scam in which he stole 2.5 MILLION; was prosecuted by DA Morgenthau’s office and was ultimately released to the state of Florida for his parole and probation.

Probation doesn’t give a rat’s ass about what he is doing.

Child Support enforcement doesn’t give a rats ass and good luck trying to get in touch with someone.

I will never see that money he owes – – I can’t even get a life insurance policy on him – something he was to provide for his FIRST born – not the other children he has – one of which is a convicted counterfeitter.

I encourage LIF to contact me.

I could understand if I did something wrong but that is not the case.

Please remove the posting or de-index it from the search engines.  I am not the only person you did this to for no reason.

Boca man pleads guilty to conspiring to bribe bankers and fake financial documents

AUG 9, 2011 | REPUBLISHED BY LIT: APR 22, 2022

WEST PALM BEACH — The owner of a Boca Raton company pleaded guilty Wednesday to conspiring to bribe local bankers and falsify financial documents to secure more than $1.5 million in fraudulent small business loans and lines of credit.

Francis Santa admitted orchestrating what federal prosecutors have described as an unique form of fraud: enlisting corrupt bankers to approve business loans for clients with poor credit histories. Santa and his employees at Palm Beach Business Consultants attempted to push through more than $10 million in bogus loans and lines of credit since the firm opened in 2003, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

After federal authorities caught on to Santa’s scheme, he began working with them and agreed to introduce an undercover FBI agent to the bankers. The sting culminated in January with the arrests of 15 people, including Santa, a Broward Schools assistant principal, a former Broward Sheriff’s investigative aide and seven Broward and Palm Beach bankers.

The Florida Supreme Court, The Florida Bar and its Department of Lawyer Regulation are charged with administering a statewide disciplinary system to enforce Supreme Court rules of professional conduct for the more than 110,000 members of The Florida Bar. Key discipline case files that are public record are posted to attorneys’ individual online Florida Bar profiles. To view discipline documents, follow these steps. Information on the discipline system and how to file a complaint are available at
Court orders are not final until time expires to file a rehearing motion and, if filed, determined. The filing of such a motion does not alter the effective date of the discipline. Disbarred lawyers may not re-apply for admission for five years. They are required to go through an extensive process that includes a rigorous background check and retaking the Bar exam. Attorneys suspended for periods of 91 days and longer must undergo a rigorous process to regain their law licenses including proving rehabilitation. Disciplinary revocation is tantamount to disbarment.
