Pompano Beach, Florida Attorney Is A Crook, Should Be Disbarred

In 2012 I talked to a Law Firm in Pompano Beach, Florida about helping me to do a modification with J.P. Morgan Chase. I was told by the Law Firm, Starr Law Group, to do the modification I would have to be behind on my mortgage payments, and when the modification was completed, all my payments in the arrears would be added to the end of the mortgage. I did what the Law Firm asked to me do, and stopped making my mortgage payments. Little did I know that this Law Firm was not going to provide me with the services I paid them to do. Chase told me that the Firm was not sending in all the documents that I had sent to the Law Firm. I later found out that the Firm had closed my file and that my home was now in foreclosure. This Law Firm is practicing Law Malpractice. I have also found out that there are about 30 other former clients that were told the same as I was, to stop making mortgage payments, and some were even asked to send in their payments to the Law Firm and they would make the payments for the clients, and the payments were never .made, and the homes went into foreclosure and sold. I filed a complaint with the Florida Bar, and letters were sent to Mr. Stuart Starr--Attorney and Owner Of Starr Law Group, and he told so many lies to the Bar, and I proved he lied on several statements he made, and the Bar protected Starr and his Law Firm. I have found it very hard to trust any Attorney these days. You have to pay a bid up-front retainer before the Law Firms will do any work for you, then once they have your money they do nothing to help you. Chase has twice now denied my modification, and I am about to loose my Florida home. I will be 64 years old December 24th, and on Total Disability and I can't receive help from anyone to help me save my home, or get help to prosecute this Attorney for stealing my $3,500.00 up-front retainer. What can I do or where can I get the help I need? The Public needs to know not to use this Attorney or his Law Firm, unless they want to get ripped off. Thank you,

Starr Law Group Only Wants Money and Will Not Help Consumers

I am behind on my mortgage by several months and I did not know there was anything that could be done. One day I was trying to set up a payment arrangement with my servicer and they told me I could do a loan modification, this was news to me and I should have been told this the first time I was behind but the mortgage company did nothing. I went on the mortgage companies website and filled out the paperwork for the modification and went to submit it and them I was told I did not qualify because we had just refinance in May. The company told me to go on their website and click on the HAMP button and I could get help. A day or so later the Starr Law Group called me and said that would qualify for a modifications since we had the loan since 2008 and that they could lower my interest rate and i would not need to make a mortgage payment until March and to stop making any payments to my mortgage company.After going over my budget with Michael Chambers I was scolded for making my car payments and medical bill payments (one of which filed court papers against so I didn't have a choice). He told me they would get the papers filed with my mortgage company right away but there would be a cost of $879.00 for the initial filing and three payments for three months of $700.00 for the process. I thought I had read somewhere that companies weren't supposed to charge upfront for this assistance but since they were lawyers I thought maybe it was different. The first payment was to come out on the 25th. They were going to take $400 and then the $479 on the 29th. I had told them I did not have the money to make those payments with only a couple days notice but I would try. I got paid on the 25 and I have all my bills on autodraft on the 25th but I pulled out the extra 500 so I would have it on the 29th. They did not bill my account until the 29 for the 400 and all my bills had been pulled from my account and I did not quite have $400 so the bank returned there draft. Also during this time of when the filed with my mortgage company they said they would call me as soon as the papers were filed. I would get the receipt from the mortgage company that they had received them and the next day a check list of everything I needed to provide to Starr Law group, that was all to take place on the 22 and 23. I got no phone calls, emails nothing. Yesterday, Dec 2, I received a phone call that may payment hadn't cleared and they were going to charge me $50 for the nsf fee and they had already submitted for the second payment. I told them not to do that because of them submitting the first payment late had cause overdraft fees on my account and it wouldn't go through. I offered to make a payment on a debit card and the pay close to the balance on 10th and then on my next payday which would be Dec 24 I would pay whatever was left and the $700 that was due. Michael Chambers was a real *** and was saying now I would have to pay two $50 NSF fees since they already sent off for the second payment. I was offering to make payments and they were not willing to work with me one bit. I looked them up and found all kinds of scam reports on them. Michael Chambers left me a nasty voicemail a said they couldn't make any payment arrangements with, not once but twice yesterday and then had the nerve to say at the end of the voice mail"Not a nice christmas present is it". He also accused me of not being able to afford my house. That is not the case we just fell on hard times and need to get through a couple months and will be OK again.Michael Chambers and the Starr Law Group is bunch off jerks only out to make money and not help people. They must have bought their rating with BBB.
