While many of the largest banks in the United States have entered in to a consent decree to review millions of foreclosures to determine whether or not they had proper standing to sue, Law Firms who filed those lawsuits continue to file cases where they know or should have known that their clients didn’t have the right to invoke the jurisdiction of the courts in Ohio.
In New York, the Attorney General has issued subpoenas and launched an investigation of such a law firm. There is no indication that Ohio’s Attorney General has similar plans.
In Ohio on behalf of some of our clients we are actively investigating potential claims that the following law firms filed cases when they knew or should have known that their client didn’t have the right to sue. Those firms are:
Laurito & Laurito
Shapiro Van Ness, Phillips and Barragate
Reisenfeld & Associates
Manley Deas Kochalski
Law Office of John Clunk
Reimer Arnovitz et al.
Felty & Lembright
Law Office of Steven Miles
Keith Weiner and Associates
Carlisle McNally et al.
We are anxious to hear about foreclosure cases that have been voluntarily dismissed or dismissed by a court for lack of standing by any of these law firms.
