When first contacting this company, I received almost daily emails and brisk replies to phone messages to get my business. After talking to their representative, Linda Gamble, numerous times and receiving unsolicited emails "pressuring" me into working with them, I became nervous. I was also trying to work with my mortgage company myself to save my home, and that began to look more promising. When contacting my husband, Carol received our banking information (without my knowledge) and took $2250.00 deposit for a retainer from our checking. This implies no fault to the company. Coincidentally, I had decided at about the same time not to use this company's services. We received a phone call requesting our mortgage info or to let them know we had changed our mind. We contacted them to let them know we no longer desired their services, and they promised to send a "Disengagement Letter" which would terminate "our relationship" and they would send our refund after a 10-day processing period. Since this phone call, approximately 2 months or more ago, I have received ONE reply from repeated attempts to contact them through phone messages and emails. Even contacting Linda Gamble, which used to get immediate response, has been to no avail. Our Disengagement Letter was finally emailed on March. 22, 2009. We completed it and faxed it back the following week. Our "10-day processing" period has come and gone. Our attempts to contact them via several emails and a multitude of phone messages has brought nothing but silence. Our original email with the Disengagement Letter was sent by Linda Gamble , with a CC to Karen Crow. Reply emails to both of these ladies has also been met with silence. After not getting refund I start modification prosecess with tham. I did not hear from tham for six months, but I was making tham phone calls and emails to knonw loan modification status. As of today Dec. 2nd, 2009 my modification never be done and none answer from tham. Christmas is around the corner and we have no money. Obviously, money is tight or we wouldn't have been shopping for a loan modification to avoid foreclosure in the first place. The "stress" that is referred to on other complaints in this forum, reading the rebuttals, has not been totally there until now. There is no excuse for stringing us along in this manner. Daily contact, almost to the point of annoying, has turned to no contact now that the money needs to come a different direction. I also have asked, with muddled replies, "if you can access our checking account to take the money OUT, why can you not access the account in the same manner to put the money IN?" I still have not received a legitimate reply to that question. Or a reply at all, as of late. I also find it extremely odd and unsettling that before they had our money contact was easy and swift. Now that we want it back, contact is nil and frustrating. If a rebuttal from the company should occur, please don't tell me about your "outstanding" stance with the Bar, or any other resource. I checked all of that out when considering using your services. I just want to hear when we are getting our refund. If we should get it promptly, so we can have money for Christmas, I will write a positive comment here and on the BBB affiliate page.

First of all, i honestly feel for your situation. The housing market and the way the current administration is handling this nation wide epidemic is ludicrous.

With that said, you made an agreement with the lender. Your failure to pay alone is the sole reason for all your troubles. You hire a law firm to negotiate a contract to which you signed. Which means, in actuality, you are guilty of not complying with your contractual obligations.

The only way to negotiate a legal matter responsibly is to hire an attorney to do so, regardless of any outcome that may or may not occur. Very similar to a murder trial, there is a defendant, guilty or not guilty, who has to obtain a lawyer for representation.

Your bank sucks, they screwed you. You hired a lawyer to whom did the good deed taking on your case in the first place. Most of these cases are losers, however there are lawyers that are willing to put their good name on the line, in order to try to get some resolute.

I know this lawfirm, they are a legitimate practice faced with very difficult tasks. The outcome is up to your lender, not the firm. I am sure if you look at the work that was done on your case you can openly admit that they did, in fact work for you, regardless of the conclusion.

Again, i feel for you and your family. However to blame a firm, to which you paid ans signed contracs with as well, for your troubles is irresponsible and ignorant.

I spoke with Bank of America in the foreclosure today because I did not fully trust this Law Offices of Thomas C. Matevia, P.A Company.  Bank of America informed me that this company and all other like it are just middlemen and found out they just relay the info you told them to the bank (mortgage company) which you can do your self and save yourself the near $3,000 they want to charge.

Not only is this service worthless and a scam, but it actually offers negative value beyond the money since they relay your info on there time if at all when you could provide this info directly to the bank and speed the process up.

This is Bank of America's number 1.800.846.2222 and ask to be transferred to the foreclosure department.
