Mass Joinder & Mass Litigation Affiliate and Marketing Information

In an effort to wrap my head around who are the current players in the marketing of mass joinder and mass litigation when it comes to mortgages I’m posting this article. This post draws no conclusions but is simply a repository of examples of this type of marketing.

If you have any additional examples, please post them in the comments below or send me a tip or upload documents using the confidential tip form.

The idea to have one place to post and comment on this information came to me during comment conversations with John Wright of PiggyBankBlog.com. John is also a named plaintiff in one of the mass joinder suits as he and others go after Bank of America.

This is also a follow-up to a previous article I posted that contains yet more examples. See “Mass Joinder Mortgage Lawsuits Just Got a Whole Lot More Foul Smelling.”

What is interesting is that the Kramer & Kaslow website lists a number of cease & desist letters that it sent out to other sites. – Source

It even lists the sites but what is intriguing is those sites appear to have been affiliates and recruiting clients for Kramer & Kaslow. The K2 site shows the cease & desist letters were sent out around February 8, 2011. There is even a letter that was sent to Matt Silverman, who was actively selling Kramer & Kaslow services as an ambassador.

Mass Joinder & Mass Litigation Affiliate and Marketing Information

The following statement was added by Mitchel Stein on his site regarding MLA.

The firm is unaffiliated with Mr. Matt Davis, Esq., and urges you to read the disclaimer set forth below and on the portion of this website entitled “Contact Us”. As of March 6, 2011, it has been reported to the Firm that Mr. Davis was or is involved with an organization of unknown origin called Mass Litigation Alliance. Several consumers have contacted the firm to inquire about Mr. Davis and statements allegedly made by Mr. Davis’ or his agents to the effect that the Firm is no longer accepting new clients. To the contrary and in the avoidance of any doubt, the firm is actively taking cases nationwide to stop what is the most significant and largest bank scandal in the history of this Country. The Firm’s intention is to not turn away any client unless and until the banks have ceased their unlawful conduct against United States citizens. The reports regarding Mr. Davis are emblematic of the industry-wide problem of identity theft and fraud, and that is why these matters are disclosed here in addition to the disclaimer sections set forth below and on the “Contact Us” pages.

As the names of additional Law Firms or Organizations are uncovered as unlawfully utilizing the Firm’s name or its marks, the Firm shall identify such entities and update this website at the first available opportunity. – Source

Mortgage Relief Center

The Mortgage Relief Center, Aaron Cushman and Steve Arnold, talks about their mortgage loan lawsuit and how they referral people to law firms. “In some instances Mortgage Relief Center may refer you to a law firm or attorney, but Mortgage Relief Center does not provide any legal services or representation, and may be paid by the law firm or attorney for its marketing services.” What is interesting is that disclaimer appears on a page title Mortgage Litigation Attorneys.

What caught my eye about this page was it referred to “ambassadors” as many of the other marketing affiliates do when talking about mass joinder litigation. – Source

    Is this organization legitimate- Consumer Protection Assistance Coalition (CPAC)?  

    Recently, I  was solicited by a legal case evaluator for this not-for-profit organization, Consumer Protection Assistance Coalition (CPAC) to help me avoid foreclosure.  (http://www.consumerprotectionhelp.org/). 
    The legal case evaluator contacted me, did a basic over the telephone interview and emailed me a questionairre to determine whether I could file a lawsuit against my lender.  According to him, my kender, BOA, had violated most of the legal requirements and that I was eligible to be referred to meet with the lead attorney, Dr. G. Lee Lane.  Included was a glowing C.V. of Mr. Lane’s legal accomplishments. The web site has changed in the past few days.  Previously, they touted themselves as a firm  organized as a “A  Registered Non Profit Law Clinic Helping Families with Children and the Elderly facing homelessness caused by Lenders.

      Tami,

      I’ll take a look at them tomorrow.

      Can you give me more details about the sales pitch? How much were they talking about charging

    Thank you Steve for informing us all even after we already have been scammed by these associates.  Sadly to say they are still working the schemes and scams. Hope soon they will be out of business!

    Pre Paid legal is NOT a law firm.

  • Jason Taylor

    How can they can be so blatantly attorney fee splitting. I always wondered how pre-paid legal was able to get around attorney fee splitting, not that there is anything wrong with pre-paid legal.

    Sandyegb, there are an overwhelming number of entities that are sending mailers and marketing this on the web. I’m already hearing complaints from people who paid money, never received a signed retainer, haven’t been added to a case, and can’t get through to anyone at the various firms. The attorneys in the actions claim the “affiliate” and “intake” firms marketing the suits aren’t authorized, yet there is a trail that indicates they are very much aware.

    Generally speaking, if people act dishonestly, violate State Laws and Bar Ethics, and behave in a manner indicative of a scam- it usually is a scam.

  • Sandyegb

    Krista, I haven’t paid anything yet. I got their flyer/notice that I am in the litigation group, and they emailed me all the information, but I don’t want to sign anything unless I am certain it’s legit and I won’t pay out my money for nothing.

  • Sandyegb

    Can you help me decide whether or not to join? They emailed me the paperwork and I found out about this in a form-type letter from them. How do I know if it’s the right thing to do?

    Jack Michael Schneider who owns “First Family Justice Center, Inc.” in Santa Ana which is an intake Loan Mod firm for MLA. He advertises as being a law firm. He was doing business late last year as “Financial Freedom of America”. Guess debt negotiation was not cutting it…..

    Yes indeed Steve, paying thousands of dollars without getting a retainer is even stupid. The mass joinder is legit though, as a plaintiff, I have the 117 page complaint against my bank right here beside me. And no, I did not copy it from some website selling their services, haha :)

  • Steve Rhode

    Krista,

    You are 100% correct. It appears the cease & desist letter sent by Kramer was just a way to clean house and direct the agents to MLA which includes Davis, Kramer, Woodbury. Stein was listed as being a part of it but not as of today.

    Interesting on the Stein case. I have not run into one of those yet. But paying money without a retainer would be a very bad thing.

  • Krista Railey

    Steve, it is my understanding that affiliate “ambassadors” and “intake specialists” have simply been directed to work with Mass Litigation Alliance. I’m finding affiliates that have updated their information to show Mass Litigation Alliance instead of Kramer & Kaslow.

    I’m looking for individuals who have paid money to join the Stein case and were not added to the suit and/or did not receive a signed retainer.

    OK, here is my current understanding.

    After speaking with a former K2 affiliate, Kramer cut ties with all the affiliates and now Mass Litigation Alliance is the “ambassador” contact point.
