Mass Joinder | Disbarment of Philip A. Kramer Pending in Foreclosure Fraud Investigation

Key disbarment pending in foreclosure fraud investigation

Philip A. Kramer, a Calabasas attorney at the center of a national loan modification scam, agreed to be disbarred last month.

Kramer (bar number 113969), 52, admitted to numerous counts of misconduct including collection of illegal fees, failure to return advance fees and accepting employment in states where he was not licensed to practice law. Kramer also agreed to pay $122,000 in restitution to 27 former clients as part of a stipulation accepted April 13 by the State Bar Court.

“As the leading watchdog of the legal profession, the State Bar does not tolerate unethical behavior by attorneys,” Acting Chief Trial Counsel Jayne Kim said. “This disbarment recommendation brings victims of Kramer’s malfeasance one step closer to justice and exemplifies the State Bar’s commitment to public protection.”

Kramer was one of several lawyers who caught the attention of authorities last year for allegedly targeting thousands of homeowners facing foreclosure and collecting up-front fees for help that never materialized.

  2. What Signature says:

    From the article:

    “Complaints against attorneys involved in mortgage-relief schemes spiked during the housing crisis, prompting the bar to form a task force.

    Since early 2009, the State Bar has investigated 1,186 complaints involving roughly 153 licensed California lawyers. Nearly 70 lawyers have been disciplined, including 18 who were disbarred. About 720 cases are still pending before the State Bar Court and another 291 matters are under investigation.”

    At least there are some states that are actually ‘investigating’ complaints against lawyers…………..It is a damn shame that Florida doesn’t (imo).
