Additional Notes

Complaint: I paid $ 3500.00 Dlls. to ***** ******** and ***** ******** from January 20, 2014 to date. They failed to do what they promised,to represent me in Court in a foreclosure case, and to obtain a loan modification for me. They did nothing but mail fraud, misrepresentation, and no service at all.Further they fail to keep me informed of my case, all I received from them were reminders for payments.

Desired Settlement: All I want is the refund of the money I paid to them.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 8, 2014/07/07) */ Mr. ********'s claims are simply untrue. It is a matter of public record that attorneys from my firm represented Mr. ******** in court on 4 occasions from January through June of 2014, after his previous attorney withdrew from representing Mr. ********. Likewise, the motions and pleadings drafted and filed by attorneys from my firm on his behalf are also on public record. Not only did my firm represent Mr. ******** in court, but we have been actively negotiating loss mitigation alternatives with his bank. Mr. ********'s claim that we did not keep him informed of his case is also clearly false: our loss mitigation efforts included documents provided to us by Mr. ******** for submission to his bank. Mr. ******** claims we did not communicate with him, but somehow he knew what documents we needed from him and physically brought them to us. In light of the fact that Mr. ******** has complained of things he cannot believe to be true, I believe that Mr. ******** is merely abusing the BBB in order to intimidate an honest service provider into working for free. In retrospect, I think it likely that Mr. ********'s previous attorney withdrew because Mr. ******** refused to pay him. I suspect that Mr. ******** hired me with the intention of benefitting from the work of my firm and then threatening me in order to get a refund so he wouldn't have to pay for the service he used. While I often issue refunds and partial refunds to clients when circumstances turn out differently than anticipated, in this case I believe that both sides have gotten what they expected, Mr. ******** just thought he could pull a fast one. The flat fee retainer agreement I use in foreclosure defense cases is designed to protect me from such predatory "clients". My employees and I work very hard for our clients and our record for defending homeowners in foreclosure absolutely shines when compared to anyone else in the State of Illinois or even the nation.
