According to the Financial News & Daily Record:
Rudolph C. Campbell, P.O. Box 546, Lutz, disbarred effective 30 days from a June 3 court order. (Admitted to practice: 1998) Further, Campbell shall pay restitution of $1,500 to one client. Campbell used his law firm as a loan modification and foreclosure assistance business. He charged up-front fees to homeowners, in violation of the Foreclosure Rescue Fraud Prevention Act, Florida Statute, 501.1377; he used deceptive advertising and he failed to respond in writing to an inquiry from The Florida Bar. (Case No. SC09-1742) – Source
What I find most interesting about this particular case is that the lawyer used “deceptive advertising” and I wonder how the bar associations around the country will feel about lawyers continuing to advertise for debt settlement services that have been labeled as deceptive and abusive?
