Hertel refers Orlans attorney for criminal investigation

Ingham County Register of Deeds Curtis Hertel Jr. has referred a top attorney from Orlans Associates, one of Michigan’s largest mortgage foreclosure law firms, to law enforcement for a criminal investigation of allegations of robo-signing.

Hertel tells Michigan Messenger that he referred Marshall Isaacs and examples of his signatures filed at the Ingham County Register of Deeds to law enforcement because he believes Isaacs did not sign all the legal documents. Hertel declined to identify the law enforcement agencies involved, but did note that there were at least two interested in the Isaacs case.

The Isaacs allegation were first reported by Michigan Messenger earlier this month. Authorities in Massachusetts placed Isaacs on a list of likely or suspected robo-signers based on an independent analysis by a fraud investigator. At the time Messenger reported on the Massachusetts situation, Hertel said his office was taking the allegations against Isaacs “very seriously.”
