United Law Center – Consumer Complaint – 5-11-2012

Written by Consumer

Consumer Statement:

On July, 10, 2010 I met with Tony and Chris who represented United Law Center located at 3013 Douglas Blvd, Suite 200, Roseville, CA 95661. I agreed to enter a fee agreement which stated, “Represent client in a claim for damages against clients lender and other responsible parties relating to clients loans secured by real property. … the claim consists of what is commonly referred to as predatory lending practices and possible violations of the Federal Truth in lending act of 1968, and/or the real estate settlement procedures act, and other associated claims”.

In the responsibilities of the Parties section of the contract it states: “the attorney will provide those legal services reasonably required to represent client in prosecuting the claims described above and will take reasonable steps to keep client informed of progress and development and to respond promptly to inquiries and communications”.

I paid them $4700.00 in September , 2010 as an initial deposit and then I paid them $1000.00 for October, $1250.00 for November and $1250.00 for December totaling $8250.00. In January 2011 I received a notice of default and when I called United Law Center, they told me that I had a great case and to keep making payments. I made an in person visit on March 2, 2011 to see what progress they were doing on my house before I would pay them any more money. During the meeting they admitted that they had done nothing on my case outside the firm.

From the time I signed the contract and paid them my initial deposit, until March 2, 2011 on my last meeting with the firm, they did not contact me and give my any information regarding the progress on my case with BofA for 6 months. I sent them a demand letter to refund my money on April 15, 2011. I did not receive a response from them on it.

  • ulc has been fighting my case for over 2 years now…they kept me in my house w/ no house payment! saving me $3500 a month! I now am renting it out and making $$$ on the rental house while not paying the bank! Eventually this will come to trial and hopefully sue those bastard bankers and mortgage brokers.

    • This law firm got my money too, I was paying them for over 1 year  total of $20,000, and finally my house was forclosed.  I wish I stopped making that monthly Payment of $1500 the first few months, that way i at least had some money to put as downpayment for another house…..
      very sad Jennifer

      • This freaks me out because we are now into ULC for about $15,000 plus but have gotten behind paying them because they havent done anything plus they never return our calls or emails, now our trial date has been pushed out 6 mos, obviously a ploy to get more money, theyre just as bad as the lender were suing !
