I hired Lucas Law Center to assist with loan modification only to be told several months later that there was nothing they can do in our situation. I was suspicious after 3 months of waiting and no resolution, very little contact and only thru emails.

They advertise on KCBS 740 A.M Radio, San Francisco Bay Area as experts in this field and state they have been successful at loan modifications resolution with the lenders.

After several emails and insisting on a personal phone call, I got a call from Frank Sullivan stating that they negotiated all they could and felt they were reluctant to further proceed with any type of negotiations, or assistance, if any. My solution was to pay the default or foreclose.

The Client Agreements states Full Refund policy if they are unable to obtain loan modification on client's behalf. Good luck on getting a refund.

Do not pay with check - use credit card which may offer a better chance of getting a refund through the fraud unit. Report these scammers to all the consumer assistance agencies and BBB.

AUTHOR: VLB - (United States of America)

I too was scammed by the Lucas Law Center. I visited their offices in Aliso, CA in October of 2008 and met with Adam Zucker who was a real smooth talker. I noticed that the entire staff was very casually dressed with no one in business attire. Anyhow, I paid them $3500.00 up front and they did nothing. When Adam Zucker took my money, he advised me to miss two mortgage payments. Several weeks later there was a CNN report on Loan Modification Companies making false promises and that any employee telling a client to purposely miss any mortgage payments was illegal! I notified Adam Zucker and requested a refund. He was very apprehensive about issuing me my refund! Everytime I called him, I was always forwarded to his voice mail. In July 2010, the Federal Trade Commission shut down the Lucas Law Center for deceptive practices and appointed Robb Evans and Associates, a Bonded Fiduciary to take control of the companies assets. I filed complaints with the Federal Trade Commission and the Better Business Bureau against the Lucas Law Center. In 2011, The Federal Trade Commission won their case against The Lucas Law Center for a judgement of 6.1 million dollars. The bad news is that only about one million was recovered. I dont know all of the particulars of the case but I did speak to a representative from the FTC who was assigned to the case. My main concern was if and when the consumers who were scammed into paying up front fees would be getting any of their money back. It is still up in the air if and when any refunds will be issued. I then contacted the California Bar and filed a complaint with the Client Security Fund. I provided them all my receipts which included copies of cancelled checks to the Lucas Law Center and a complete narrative of what had happened to me. I was refunded my money! I urge everyone who was scammed by the Lucas Law Center to contact the Client Security Fund with the California Bar and file a complaint. Paul Jeffrey Lucas has since been disbarred! There is more information on the California Bar website.
