The consumer wrote in with an update to this complaint. A big hat tip to Defense Lawyers for taking care of this. This is the kind of positive customer service consumer deserve from their debt relief company.
“Thank you for posting my complaint. Defense Lawyers PA quickly contacted me after the posting, and reimbursed the Escrow money owed to me. They also resolved other complaints I had against them. Without your help, none of this would have happened.”
I contracted with , Defense Lawyers, P.A. 101 Plaza Real S Ste 204 Boca Raton FL 33432-4856 to settle my debt. After almost three years of their services, they had not even settled half of my debt. When I asked for a refund of the Escrow money I had sent them, they promised they would send it to me, and never did.
Consumer Action Taken:
Wrote a letter (Certified USPS) requesting my Escrow funds be returned to me. Requested a detailed financial accounting of how the funds were used? Requested who is the Escrow administrator? They never responded, and did not return my money. Nor do they pick up the phone to respond to me when I call.

Important update to this complaint, see top of complaint. A big hat tip to Defense Lawyers for taking care of it.
What does it really matter what anybody says about a complaint made against an Ed Cherry/Lee Stein company? Nothing ever happens to these guys.
Mizner Grande Law (which is just Fidelity Land Trust 2 new name same management) is still charging people $1000/mo to “sue” their lender LOL while they really still their home and Debt Defense/Defense Lawyers (Hess Kennedy 2 -new name same management) is still charging people $30,0000 to do nothing at all except destroy their credit.
So, what’s the point of writing these when you know Ed Cherry / Howard Feinmel / Lee Stein / Mizner Grande / Defense Lawyers are all untouchable criminals.
This person should contact a Michigan lawyer immediately. Many states have strong consumer protections against attorneys that masquerade as debt settlement providers. Also, the Florida Bar might have a consumer protection fund that can refund their money if the attorney refuses to give it back.
