CALIFORNIA ALERT: MASS JOINDER LAWSUITS AGAINST THE BANKS


ON 8/15/2011 THE LOS ANGELES COUNTY SUPERIOR COURT ISSUED AN INTERIM ORDER ASSUMING INTERIM JURISDICTION OVER THE LAW FIRM OF PHILIP A. KRAMER IN CALABASAS, CA. THE STATE BAR REMOVED ALL CLIENT FILES. CALL THE STATE BAR IF YOU WERE HIS CLIENT OR IN ONE OF HIS MASS JOINDER LAWSUITS.
In recent week various state offices have issued warnings about unlicensed law firms, mass joinder law suits, and loan modification services.  Today Foreclosuregate posted a blog about this issue stating in part the following:

"Over the last couple of months there have been a few warnings from various state offices related to unlicensed law firms and "mass joinder" suits and loan modification services.  I reported on one of them at the time.A few days ago the latest of what has been a handful of apparent spammers came into the forum and posted what could best be called a "weak tout" of these schemes.  I blocked the account and emailed the person, asking for identification and their affiliation with these entities, stating that I would not restore the account or their post until they contacted me. There was no reply. Today I heard allegations of an apparent raid on at least one - and maybe more than one - of the law firms involved.
"The phone number 818-224-3900 now has a voice message allegedly from the California Bar.  A quick Google search appears to link this number to Kramer and Kaslow in multiple hits including a press release from FebruaryIf you were in any way doing business with these folks you ought to call that number and listen."
I personally telephoned 818-224-3900.  The call was referred to the State Bar of California. Instructions were given to clients doing business with the firm. A further google search revealed the following:

  1. I use to think the CA Bar didn't go after hardly anyone. They seemed very relaxed on some attorneys. I have since changed my mind. This was an effort with the AG and CA State Bar.
