How Good Solos Suffer When the Greedy Sell Out for $125 A Pop

in Ethics & Malpractice Issues, Mistakes/What NOT To Do

Back in July, I denounced three Cincinnati, Ohio lawyers who shamelessly served as a front for a foreclosure solutions scam. The lawyers never met with clients (who were going to lose their homes!) or did any work on their behalf; they merely signed their name to canned pleadings prepared by a so-called foreclosure solutions company for $125 a case (later upped to a whopping $150).

Turns out, though, these lawyers did much more than simply sacrifice their own law licenses (they were suspended, though honestly, at least two deserved disbarment) for a $125 a pop. No – sadly, lawyers like these and others of their ilk sold out the overwhelming majority of ethical solo and small firm lawyers who capably and zealously represent clients in foreclosure and loan modification proceedings.
