“Despite the predators, it is important for consumers to remember there are skilled and experienced attorneys at Kramer & Kaslow who are helping people in need” -- Philip Kramer, Esq.

Recent media coverage and Internet postings accusing mortgage litigation services of tactics of associating with law firms like Kramer & Kaslow are part of a nationwide trend of unauthorized use of trademark and unauthorized practice of law. These tactics are predatory scams misleading consumers who can be helped with their foreclosures by seasoned litigation attorneys, according to Philip A. Kramer, Esq. senior partner of Kramer & Kaslow, LLC.

A post on the RainCityGuide blog, entitled, “New Predatory Scam: Mortgage Litigation Services,” described the author’s receipt of an email marketing piece promising anyone including non-attorneys “a turnkey system that allows you to start offering mortgage litigation to homeowners in days working out of your house” The marketing piece promised huge profits for those individuals who signed up, for which little or no work would be required. In the post, the author described how…“the subprime lending industry barfed out hundreds if not thousands of loan originators in 2008 who had a taste of the six figure lifestyle and didn’t want it to end. The predators quickly swarmed into the loan modification industry and when state regulators started clamping down, they morphed into the new industry of non lawyer mortgage litigation scheme.”
