Like client like attorney. Gary Kurtz has a history of hiring sexual escorts, losing his California Bar License, found guilty in L.A. Superior Court and sentenced to serve jail time, 300 community service hours and currently on probation. Kurtz is Involved with ponzy schemer Robert Kasirer Golden State Nursing Homes, con man Bahman Bezhadi, Phil Markowitz, mal practice Stephen Sandler. These guys don't know the limits of the law.

Gordons law firm sucked me in to the tune of 2500.00. Promised interest rate reduction and did nothing

I think the measures CFNB initiated are befitting. In consideration that the greed of a law firm that abuses its status as a law firm creates a level of trust on the part of the homeowner who is in a vulnerable state of mind and more than willing to pay hefty fees on top of relying on legal advice. This should also be jointly pursued by the Grievance Committees of the legal Bar in each state. This way, they can be disbarred, out of jobs( may face foreclosures themselves in a crooked justice system that is easily manipulated by the lenders due to retaining Foreclosure law firms ( foreclosure mills ) Lenders also abuse the TARP funds given to them by taxpayers for making modifications.

I respect FTC enforcement and hope the CFPB will do good work. Based only on the alleged facts, this sounds like a serious case. The tough part of cases like this one is that, even with asset freezes and receivers, civil authorities are playing Whack-a-Mole with an endless supply of defendants and civil tools inadequate to the task. It is too bad that U.S. Attorneys and the FBI are too busy to make these cases criminal--the only approach that gets some people's attention.
