Howard Lee Schiff, P.C. absolute liars that pray on non attorneys hoping they don't know how to follow a court case so they can get a default judgment Providence Rhode Island
After loosing a house to foreclosure in 2009 after my intrest rate adjusted and the market crashed I was in debt up to my ears. Most of my creditors worked with me to take pay offs of about 20% of the debt I owed. Howard Lee Schiff took on a debt I owed and sent me a few letters, I called each time and explained I wanted to avoid bankrupcty and would pay a similar payoff that my other debtors took, Howard Lee Schiff denied payoffs of a lesser amount and opened a court case against me. I then sent a certified letter to Howard Lee Schiff offering a reduced payoff and called them. On the phone I was told to just wait a while and once some time passed they would be more likely to take a lesser amount. I never heard of a court date, not knowing the laws at the time, that there was never a court date. I should of known magically to file documents with the court answering this case, and since I only communicated with Howard Lee Schiff directly, they were able to win a default judgment against me, claiming I had no contact with them, since I didn't file it in the court! Dirty money hungry lawyers using tricks they learned in law school to hide behind a pile of paperwork and screw a average guy that is attempting to pay off his debt. The attorney general should look into the tactics these pricks use. Oh wait this is RI, Howard Lee Schiff's staff is most likely married to half the staff of the AG's office.
