 It appears that Saharie L. Reed Esq. operates out of the state of Texas under the Mortgage Law Group. She also allows her name to be used in conjunction as an associate of the Foreclosure Law Center, headquartered in Philadelphia, PA.

I was client of The Foreclosure Law Center beginning in February of 2013 and up until  early May 2013 when I fired them. I was never contacted by Ms. Reed nor did I have any communication iniated by her, even though the documents I received from FLC listed her as a Texas Bar Member. I foolishly assumed that she would be my attorney of record representing me in the loan modification process.

I was told by FLC not to speak to my lender, and not to answer any phone calls from them, during the loan modification process, which could take up to 10 months. I finally did speak with my lender and told them that I was being represented by an attorney. They told me that I should ask for a refund since they had no record of any attorney acting on my behalf. They also told me that an attorney could not do anything for me that I could not do myself. All an attorney might be able to do is submit modification request. I knew at that point that I had been scammed.

See MARS Rule for attorney's ( below). As I see it, Ms. reed engaged in deceptive practices by allowing her name to be used in conjunction with this loan mod scam law firm. She also, and apparently, is involved with a Texas Law firm know as The Mortgage Law Group who operates in a similar manner. 

" Attorneys are generally exempt from the rule if they provide mortgage assistance relief services as part of the practice of law, are licensed in the state where the consumer or dwelling is located, and comply with state laws and regulations governing attorney conduct related to the rule. To be exempt from the advance fee ban, attorneys must also place any advance fees they collect in a client trust account and abide by state laws and regulations covering such accounts."

At this point all I can do is continue to report the unprofessional practices of Ms. Reed to the FTC ( Federal Trade Commission) and other reporting agency's. I, of course, was denied a refund by FLC( Foreclosure Law Center). And quite frankly, I felt like I was dealing with gangsters rather than professional attorney's.

Alia's Law Group Ordered to Cease and Desist by CT Banking Commission

AUTHOR: Jane Claire - ()

You'll notice on FLC's website they are not doing business in CT.( See Below) and this is just part of the findings. 

Section 36a-671b(b) of the Connecticut General Statutes provides, in pertinent part, that:
No person offering debt negotiation services may receive a fee, commission or other valuable consideration for the performance of any service the person offering debt negotiation services has agreed to perform for any consumer until the person offering debt negotiation services has fully performed such service.  A person offering debt negotiation services may receive reasonable periodic payments as services are rendered, provided such payments are clearly stated in the contract.  The commissioner may establish a schedule of maximum fees that a debt negotiator may charge for specific services.
1.
Alia Law Group’s engaging in debt negotiation in this state without obtaining the required license, as more fully described in paragraphs 1, 3 and 4 through 8, inclusive, of the Matters Asserted, constitutes a violation of Section 36a-671(b) of the Connecticut General Statutes, in effect prior to October 1, 2011.  Such violation forms the basis to issue an order to cease and desist pursuant to Section 36a-671a(b) of the 2012 Supplement to the General Statutes and Section 36a-52(a) of the Connecticut General Statutes, and impose a civil penalty pursuant to Section 36a-671a(b) of the 2012 Supplement to the General Statutes and Section 36a-50(a) of the Connecticut General Statutes.  Section 36a-50(a) of the Connecticut General Statutes authorizes the Commissioner to impose a civil penalty upon Alia Law Group in an amount not to exceed One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000) per violation.
2.
GMK Solutions’ engaging in debt negotiation in this state without obtaining the required license, as more fully described in paragraphs 2, 4, 5, 7 and 8 of the Matters Asserted, constitutes a violation of Section 36a-671(b) of the Connecticut General Statutes, in effect prior to October 1, 2011.  Such violation forms the basis to issue an order to cease and desist pursuant to Section 36a-671a(b) of the 2012 Supplement to the General Statutes and Section 36a-52(a) of the Connecticut General Statutes, and impose a civil penalty pursuant to Section 36a-671a(b) of the 2012 Supplement to the General Statutes and Section 36a-50(a) of the Connecticut General Statutes.  Section 36a-50(a) of the Connecticut General Statutes authorizes the Commissioner to impose a civil penalty upon GMK Solutions in an amount not to exceed One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000) per violation.
