Frank Fanella aka Francis Fanella - crooked attorney, tax fraud, home ownership fraud

When you’re thinking of hiring Frank Fanella as your attorney, you better think again. Since he owes money to the IRS he will steal from anybody just to get out of it. He took thousands of dollars from me and accomplished absolutely nothing. He is charged with criminal tax fraud and has IRS liens on his properties. He is trying to avoid paying the IRS by transferring his properties into other family member names. That’s going to catching up with him http://www.mlive.com/news/bay-city/index.ssf/2013/09/rose_city_dentist_arrested_cha.html Frank Fanella takes all cases that comes thru the door, without regard to whether he has any experience or chances of winning such case. He wastes time, delivers poor service, taking advantage of blue-collar residents of Glendale Heights and surrounding areas. He is the kind filth that defends animal abusers and killers with bogus arguments in court and loses http://prev.dailyherald.com/story/?id=227283. No other attorney wanted to take on that case. His credit is so bad that he has to ask his 72-year-old father to obtain mortgage loans for him. His poor father can also be prosecuted because he engaged in ownership and occupancy misrepresentations to the lender and the government http://7online.com/news/13-arrested-in-alleged-mortgage-welfare-fraud-in-orthodox-communities/393517/ These perpetrators are falsifying occupancy rates on their rent rolls and flipping properties to arms-length purchasers. Do they not remember signing the occupancy disclosure? https://www.53.com/files/doc/wm/forms/fbi-occupancy-certificate.pdf Frank Fanella and his family are taking advantage of Homeowners Exemption in order to pay smaller property taxes. Their names are changed in transaction records to hide the long list of properties. That’s theft of government property, a Class 1 Felony. http://www.illinoisobserver.net/tag/cook-county-fraudulent-property-tax-exemption/ Frank Fanella is a deadbeat doesn’t even send child support payments to his ex-wife Claire and children www.deadbeatsillinois.com/ He has also been encouraging homeowners to lie and short-sell their home to their family members to avoid foreclosure and cut the mortgage amount in hald. Except that’s illegal when you lie about it to the bank and federal agency such as FannieMae. Even attorneys are sentenced for that kind of stuff Report: BofA Employee Arrested for Short Sale Fraud. Now most of these homeowners will be investigated for his faulty advice.
