Reader Wants to Know More About Gordon and Associates Loan Modification Services

A reader wrote to me wanting to know more about a company in California called Gordon and Associates.

They said, “I am surprised that you don’t have this company’s info or I couldn’t find it.”

Attached to the email the reader sent in a copy of the recent BBB listing for Gordon and Associates. I just ran it again to make sure I had the most current listing. – Source

What either perplexed or concerned the reader was the alternate business names associated with Gordon & Associates. The BBB states the company is alternatively known as:

  • Gordon and Associates
  • Relief Council
  • National Legal Source
  • The Gordon Law Firm
  • Gordon Law Firm

And the BBB states they operate under these alternate websites:

  • prelitlaw.com
  • reliefcouncil.com
  • ReliefCouncil.org

The following documents were attached as well.

If anyone has had experience with this firm and would like to share their feedback, please post it in the comments below.

    This week, the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau filed an action in federal court to enjoin Gordon and the many different companies he controls from engaging in the kind of misleading advertising he’s noted for.  The CFPB also obtained orders to freeze his assets and appoint Rob Evans as a receiver. Here’s a link to the docket:
     
    http://www.scribd.com/doc/101057242/CFPB-v-Chance-Gordon-Et-Al-DocketAnyone who has been lost money to Mr. Gordon’s loan modification scams should file a claim with the receiver.  Here’s the website: http://www.robbevans.com/.  I’d also file a complaint with the CFPD and the State Bar of California.  By following up, you may be eligible to obtain restitution.

      You’re the true scammer William Mitchell, former disgraced president of the Southland BBB. Why not tell everyone how you sold an A Rating to a company called “Hamas”? Why not bring up the resulting FBI Investigation and how the BBB forced you out of your position and deleted all your comments from Trustlink because you’re a fraud.

  • PFlores

    If everything is up and up, why do they have to continue to change the name of the company? 

  • NV fostermom

    Run as fast as you can. They are a rip off scam. They have all these feelers out to take advantage of homeowners like us. THey bring you in on this premise that they will help you through legal terms to get a resolve through their pre lit program , then when that doesn’t work because they don’t do anything, they try and coerce you into “litigation” for outlandish fees. I am still trying to get back my 3500.00 that they took, and provided nothing except a headache and a worse situation. 

    • Chance E. Gordon

       Why not come in and meet with me if you want a refund?  I will happy to sit with you and if we did not fully perform under the agreements you executed, a refund will be issued.

      • http://GetOutOfDebt.org Steve Rhode

        Are you saying that any refund is conditional on a face-to-face meeting?

      • Chance E. Gordon

        Sorry Steve…I am going to favorite your blog so I can check it regularly…the answer is “no”, meeting with me in person is not a condition to obtaining a refund.  The reason I invited NV fosterman to meet with me “face to face” is because I feel it is only fair that a client discuss their lack of satisfaction with me in person prior to smearing me on the Internet. Many people have launched anonymous attacks and I have extended the same invitation. This is not because I want to be confrontational or intimidating. Instead, doing so bestows a mutual benefit.  For the client, it allows them to physically see their file, ask me any question they feel appropriate, and to describe for me the outcome they expected.  For me, it is an opportunity for me to personally hear a client’s complaint and to use this information constructively so that my office can try and improve the service we provide to our clients.

        My office will issue a refund if, upon reviewing the client’s file, I come to the conclusion that we have not rendered the level of service that a reasonable client would expect.  I think that a person dissatisfied with our services and seeking a refund is obligated to describe where we failed to perform.  This approach will accomplish much more than hurling of baseless insults will.

    Hi my name is Darcy, and I am one of the very satified clients of the Gordon law firm. My mortage is with Wachovia Mortage and they denied my attempts to remodify my loan twice because of “one piece of paper ” that was submitted incorrectly. I was contacted by George Pierce a very competent real estate advisor who really followed me through the whole process of modifying my loan and getting me a 2% interest rate. The process was fast and easy. I, too, was concerned about the BBB rating. After investagating all aspects I have to agree with Chance E. Gordon that the BBB is illegally deflaming his company and I would advise eveyone who is confused with these issues to read the law suit Chance E. Gordon has brought against the BBB and rightfully so. Feel free to contact me thru George Pierce @ reliefcouncil. The office is very nice in Los Angeles  (2 floors) on Wilshire ( I personally went down to visit) the staff is very professional and their follow up and turn around time was extremely fast ( about 2-3 months) They were very good at working with my budget and gave me a partial payment plan I could work with- They saved my housed from Short Sale (a scam) and/or forclosure. Also, they are very good at follow up. Keep the good work up everybody! DarcyRivas

  • E. Hamm

    I lost $4,000 by using Gordon and Associates. BEWARE. This firm is also run under the name of the attorney CHANCE E. GORDON. I have reported them to the State Bar and Attorney Generals office. They misrepresent their services to deperate homeowners and charge for Modifications (which is illegal). Contact NACA or HAMP directly to seek help, but DON’T trust Gordon and Associates. I wish I hadn’t. :-<

    • Chance E. Gordon

      Really E. Hamm, how did we “misrepresent are services”?  How do we “charge for Modifications” when doing so is in violation of Civil Code Section 2944.7(a)?  Did you read the written agreement with my office before signing it?  Do you read and understand the English Language?  Finally, if you knew you were paying an upfront fee in violation of the law, (as you allege), why did you do it? 

      E. Hamm, the Era of the “victimized homeowner” is over.  More than likely, you are a individual that simply does not want to pay his or her bills and in regards to my office, are misusing the disciplinary remedies of the State Bar of California and the enforcement power the Attorney General’s office as an illegal collection remedy.

      Any by the way, if you want to know the truth about the scum and scoundrals at the BBB, read the below link.  The BBB should have no credibility with anyone except morons and scammers.  It is a corrupt racketeering organization ran by the largest loan mod scammer in the State…William Mitchell.  However, if ignorance and distortion are you modus operandi, push on with the defamatory statements you have made above.

        What’s the current status of your lawsuit against the BBB that you describe through your link? I didn’t see any resolution on the thread. What happened with that?

      • Chance E. Gordon

        The lawsuit was eventually dismissed due to the fact that William Mitchell was evading service and the fact that we were able to successfully change my firm’s d.b.a.  I am not disputing in any way, shape, or form the various d.b.a’s we have worked under. However, when you are dealing with a corrupt entity such as the Southland BBB that believes it is okay to disparge offices like mine because; 1) we won’t pay them the ransom they demand, and, 2) their president owns a competing business, (Springboard Financial), what other choice do we have?

        My firm stopped 433 foreclosure sales last year.  We have successfully modified loans for approximately 2000 clients over the last year two and a half years.  Nonetheless, the lies and deceit of the Southland BBB have cost us dearly.

        I have challenged William Mitchell to a public debate and even was agreeable to allow him to chose the venue.  He declined.  What does that tell you?
