The following email was received by a consumer as part of the process to sell her into a lawsuit against her lender.
I was utterly surprised to see that the associated attorneys of Consolidate Litigation Group include both Phillip Kramer and Mitchell Stein. Last I heard they were feuding with each other.
You will see the most likely outcome from the mass joinder case is said to be “C: Amnesty Program; in lieu of lender criminal prosecution, principal balance reduced to current value & 3% fixed for life of loan.(most likely)”
Sure sounds like the consumer is given an expectation that is the result they will obtain.

And then one of the documents sent to the consumers is from the law firm of Kramer and Kaslow.
So is Consolidated Litigation Group using Stein’s name with his permission? Have they mended fences? Is Consolidated Litigation Group really Kramer & Kaslow?
