James F. Nichols said he could help with our house as we fell on hard times to remodify, refi, and delay the foreclosure process. We paid him $3K.

He always acted like everything was under control and that we didn't have to worry. Then we got a Notice the house was going to auction. He said he would postpone it, so we did not try to go the short-sale route. It was sold at foreclosure not after 3 months after hiring James.

We filed a small claims against him just for the amount we paid. The goof-ball so-called "attorney" did not even show up to his own case. Even the judge laughed.

Now we have a worthless piece of paper saying we have a judgment.

I just want people to beware of this wannabe Lawyer.

A little help

AUTHOR: DEA - (United States of America)

I know exactly where to find this individual if you need some help. If it helps you feel any better about the situation I understand he has been disbared and is no longer able to act as an attorney in Utah. It's unfortunate that this happened to you. I am not able to give any specifics on his whereabouts on this public website, but if you are still persuing this I can be of some help.

James F. Nichols filed a Motion to Dismiss and Set Aside the Judgment. The court granted him a hearing, and again he did not show. The Judge wasn't happy and denied his motion with prejudice. That's twice he was a no-show.

We've been trying to serve him additional papers, but the constable is having a hard catching him or any member of his family at his residence. Interesting.

I also filed a complaint with the Utah State Bar. Maybe they will be of some help. Any other ideas?

He just emailed me saying our case had no grounds and threatened to appeal the case to District Court.

For such a confident man in his plan, I'm confused why he would not show to two court hearings and evade the constable to such a degree. Interesting.
