Attorneys are regulated by the bar associations, they do not need to be regulated on another level. Very few of your fraudulent loan modifications have attorneys involved. I personally would not assist any one in a loan modification unless I was paid up front. Icurrently handle bankruptcy & foreclosure defese cases and payment up front is required prior to service. In the past I have handle family law cases and have been finiancially stiffed, which is why i no longer take those type of clients.
