Sun Sentinel | Foreclosure fraud complaints flood Florida Bar but no lawyer reprimands so far

“Yet among the total 46 foreclosure fraud cases closed so far, none have resulted in any sanctions against attorneys – including David J. Stern, whose Plantation operation once employed more than 1,000 people and became synonmous nationwide with the term “foreclosure mill.” Stern, who is the target of a civil investigation by the Florida Attorney General, also has faced bar scrutiny since last year.

Foreclosure fraud complaints flood Florida Bar but no lawyer reprimands so far

Complaints about foreclosure fraud are pouring into the Florida Bar, with four times more cases pending than there were six months ago, as property owners trying to save their homes increasingly take on their banks and their lenders’ lawyers.

The bar, which regulates lawyer conduct in Florida and most states, has opened 202 foreclosure fraud grievance investigations since November, with 226 now pending. Such complaints target lenders’ attorneys, some of whose huge practices process thousands of foreclosures a month.

These practices, nicknamed foreclosure mills, have been making headlines for months as they face accusations by homeowners and state regulators of allegedly submitting false or misleading paperwork, and having employees “robosign” piles of documents without verifying them.

    The big question here is why are we wasting our time and efforts with the little fish? WHY AREN’T WE SUING THE BANKS?

  2. Ms. A says:

    Not surprising. The Florida Bar is basically a union for attorneys. I filed a Bar grievance against David Stern and his associate Vivien Lurlene and the Bar found “no probable cause”, despite obvious fraud. I actually had to embarrass the Bar into even investigation my grievance against Stern’s office. So we all know what kind of an operation the Florida Bar really is.

    Bar(s) are places you go to drink. It’s not only Stern, look on the Fannie Mae list. But judges don’t mind – to many of them, you simply ain’t paid. (you were ripped off, stolen from, drawn around the bend, subprimed, loan sharked, fraudulent affidavits, foreclosed, evicted – those don’t seem to matter either) The problem needs to be turned around to look at the original non-contracts that the Banksters seem to think are preordained excuses to continue to lie, cheat, and steal.

    they do not care I have complained and nothing happened don’t you see a pattern here?
    it is a shame the Florida Bar no credibility

    • AliceN.Wunderland says:

      You are correct anthony, I wouldn’t write to the bar, been there done that several years ago and the head guy perjured himself in a letter back to me. I saved it because I wanted to see how far he would advance in his career…need to pull that letter out..he is probably in my state government now. When did attorneys become so corrupt…when was the turning point. Everytime I read something about an honest attorney my heart beats a little faster thinking. wow, someone that hasn’t lost their moral compass…. how did that happen. Honest attorneys are the exception, certainly not the rule. The old saying…the sins of the fathers shall be visited on their sons..ouch.

        IMO Sten is dumping the foreclosure cases because they are ALL false everyone was not done according to the legal process and by him BSing that he has no staff he has an easy way out
        the court should not let him dump the files there are no true dates, signatues , fees on any
        it is ridiculous that he is not having to be accountable check the dates on these files really check they are all made up

      • anthony says:

        all you homeowners should sue the banks for hiring STERN as their Attorney he did not do his job
        nothing is true nothing all you homeowners have been had by him all of you

      • AliceN.Wunderland says:

        anthony, I get the feeling that you know alot about what happened regarding robo-signed docs. I am trying to understand your relationship with stern, were you employed as a robo-signer or was someone you knew employed by him. I hope you keep posting about what happened to you or someone close to you. Your knowledge about what went on is very valuable.
