  • VERY unhappy RELC client

    We are past clients. After paying and paying (we filed individually) they finally sent us the work they’d supposedly spent hours doing – after being led on with one lie after another excuse – 7 MONTHS LATER. They didn’t have our case even close to right and had merely added our names to a cookie cutter suit they’d obviously done for other clients. It even had typos, grammar issues and wasn’t completed. Fed up, we cancelled our contract. Not only were we refused a refund – they said we had to pay for all the work they’d done which was clearly less than a day’s worth of work, and didn’t even consider our time! We spent days providing them information they lost, days emailing them information we’d spent hours organizing for them, explaining case details they didn’t even listen to, etc. Their work was incomplete and useless to us. It’s like paying for a used, non functioning stereo system without the speakers – all you can do it throw it away as it would cost more to fix it then it’s worth. No other attorney could even use the work they did. But here’s the real kicker THAT PROVES THEY ARE A SCAM – AFTER WE CANCELLED, THEY CONTINUED TO DEDUCT $1500 A MONTH FROM OUR CHECKING ACCOUNT!! AND ARE STILL TRYING TO DO IT!!! We now have to close our checking account and start over. It’s going to take me more time to re-do all the auto bill payments and change accounts than they spent ever working on our case! STAY AWAY FROM THIS FIRM!!!

    I wish I had seen this website before signing up. It would have saved us tons of money and grief…. so do yourself a favor and take advantage of other’s experiences. The only reason I’m wasting my time is because I don’t want to see other people go through what we did. From what I’ve learned, there are no firms that have had success so if they try to sell you this idea, it’s probably a lie. Don’t just ask if they’ve won any cases like I did and believe them. Make sure to ask for more than one case number – get at least 3 case numbers. If they’ve won 3 cases, and you see proof and have verified it on a legal website, then go for it. Don’t take their bar rating as an indicator or BBB rating. That could just be because there hasn’t yet been enough time for the scams to unfold. Don’t be fooled – it is very lucrative to file mass joinder lawsuits. Especially if you just use the same cookie cutter submissions over and over, merely changing a few details. It takes a half hour at best… they don’t read the data you provide. They don’t even listen when they interview you on the phone. I think they read a book or type in your info into the case as they interview so assume that’s about how long they actually work on your case. The worst part is that they have all your ID and personal info so they can easily harm you so I will be reporting them to the FBI and other places as potential ID theft candidates. Luckily, I have family and friends in high up places in law enforcement and they will be watched and prosecuted if they do this but why put yourself at risk?

    • hello

      good job for you – Also for the woman above – guess what –
      RealEstateCenter.org – is the SAME company. They have several offices. I have worked for attorneys for years- and I cans say that this was a good decision. They do have legitimate attorneys – however, their billing and communication is extremely suspect. You should never be signed up for attorney services through call centers – and you should have access to your attorney and I have never seen a place where the attorneys don’t meet with you personally to sign a retainer agreement. Do not merely fill out a form and expect anything to be done- all of these testimonials that say a compliance call attorney calls you and disclaims everything the call center says is true -its literally to say we did this it’s legal. – I have never seen a service like this – a room full of call center people and a few attorneys. It’s a way to back door it and take your money after you are focused on saving your home and an uneducated call center person has already got your hopes up.

      Sure its really filed – but you are overpaying for services, its all “technically” legal that’s how they pull it off – its all to benefit Deepak
      Parwatiker – who is NOT listed on their website and has Bar
      disciplinary actions as well as a similarly bogus operation called the
      Balanced Law Group. Chad Pratt is being used by this notorious attorney. The way they sign up people is bogus – you are a
      straw in a haystack – maybe the attorneys they hired will get to your
      case – but some of their services will do nothing for you -its like
      throwing your money into a trash bin. Don’t do it. If you believe you
      really have a case – go to an individual attorney who has not targeted
      you through a mass mailer. The California bar has a free referral
      service.
      Let’s not forget – they offer different services – individual, mass tort joinder (not class action) and Federal Regulatory complaint (piss your money into the wind people b/c the BANK decides whether they want to give you a remedy not the OCC). The only hope you may have is with the individual – and then you are merely a number and they may not get to you for months b/c they take everyone and meanwhile foreclosure and sales date are approaching. – yes not the best tactic.

      You could have hired an attorney who doesn’t have a stack of
      cases back logged for the same or less retainer fee. All of the
      previous posts I have read are specific for a reason – they are
      accurate. Some of us in the legal profession have too much integrity to
      say part of my business gets results – the other part is to pad my
      accounts -not good.

    The cases, yes they are for real and the litigation against these banks are for real. The Law Firm, Real Estate Law Center, lead attorney Chad Pratt, Esq is well respected and he had to have big “balls” to step into this Targeted Area. There have been a lot of crooks out there, I know I have been ripped off. The “Marketing Arm” is just that, they help spread the word for the Real Estate Law Center in which they can Focus on the Cases, not the Marketing. The Compliance Law Center is the Marketing arm that is owned and operated by the attorney in which allows the legal Attorney to Attorney relationship.

    Wouldn’t you rather have a firm focused on your case instead of having a firm focus on 60% of your case while the other 40% is getting to the right people that need help?

    So, before you jump, do your best to get through and follow the rules. Be active in your case and communicate with customer service.

    It is a rule of thumb in business, that you can satisfy 95% percent of your clients but you will never satisfy 100%. There is someone always out there to be critical and want to tear down a good thing.

    I also wouldn’t be surprise to say, that a Bank would go low enough to go onto a platform such as this and MAKE PHONY AND FALSE COMPLAINTS in order to discredit the law firm as well as have you, THE HOMEOWNER lose hope and then eventually LOSE YOUR HOME.

    Either buck up and fight or just move out… your choice.

      I was notified recently of this action as well. I went to the Superior Court of California, Los Angeles district website, clicked on case summaries, entered the case # BC463386. It then pulls up the case and you can click on documents filed and see the activity of the case. Is it real? I’d say yes.

  • Marmvr

    I should like to point out that there is a legitimate and well-respected law firm which goes by the name of RealEstateLawCenter.org in Pasadena which has no connection nor affiliation whatsoever with these people.  I know – I work there and we are very concerned that someone might think we have some connection with these jerks.

      I have received a mailer in the mail. I have been turned down for any help. I would like to know if this is for real. Is there really a case? Is this going through the attorney?
