The Answer

Dear Steven,

I received the three page document you sent. While you did not tell me exactly what the problem is you are trying to address, I can only assume it has something to do with your mortgage.

All consumers can conduct their own investigation into any company they are thinking of hiring for debt relief.

I would recommend that anyone considering using such a company should read the following free guides.

I am a firm believer in the value of good legal advice by a lawyer you is licensed in your state. According to the documentation you sent you live in Pennsylvania.

According to the website for Starr Law Group, PLC (sjslawgroup.com) they only list one attorney, a Stuart Starr. Starr is a Florida licensed attorney in good standing with the Florida Bar.

Stuart Starr does not seem to be a licensed attorney in Pennsylvania. You can verify the here.

The website is owned by Tom Kennedy, 7701 NW 86 Way, Tamarac, FL. Using the Florida Bar website I could not locate a Tom Kennedy at that address as a licensed attorney.

The State of Florida does not have a company registered under the name of Starr Law Group, PLC. However the State of Florida does have a fictitious name filed for Starr Law Group which is actually a fictitious name for Law Offices of Stuart Star, PLC. So there is really no specific company under the exact name Starr Law Group, PLC.

What follows is just a layman interpretation of the documents you supplied. If you want a legal opinion you would need to speak to an attorney who is licensed in Pennsylvania.

The document you supplied says the Starr Law Group, PLC “has been retained to represent” you, the documents you supplied does not say the firm is providing you with legal advice and is licensed in your state.

Page two is just a request to release documents.

The final page is a payment schedule for $3,129 and if you are under the belief you are getting legal representation you should specifically ask who the attorney is in Pennsylvania is who is representing you and ask for a copy of the representation agreement.

If you considering hiring any firm because you are trying to get a mortgage modification, you might want to review this guide.

I want to be clear, I am definitely not saying you are getting scammed. What I am saying is there are some more questions you should ask to fully understand what you are paying for and which Pennsylvania attorney is legally representing you.

Please post your responses and follow-up messages to me on this in the comments section below.

Big Hug!
