I am trying to spread the word because it is hard to get regulators to look into this place. Do not trust them. This is the internet, so you may be inclined not to trust me but I am not being paid to write this or to sell the place. Anyone you talk to or who posts here in favor of the Real Estate Law Center is.
There is a lot of negative history on here. Ask Sebastian who likes to rebut things whether he is paid to sell RELC. He is. He pitches to prospective clients. He also doesn't list what his title is. That's curious. He speaks for RELC but doesn't say what his title/role is with the organization.
Ask why they have to send out mass mailings if their reputation is so great. They should have all the clients they need through word of mouth. The problem is that they can't rely on word of mouth because a lot of it is negative. People are angry and upset and wish they had never gotten involved with RELC and some have posted on here.
Do your homework. Take everything said by them with a grain of salt. Everything. They cannot give specifics. They cannot tell you how many cases they take on every month. They cannot tell you how many of those spoke to an attorney (not a compliance attorney, as they call it, but a litigation attorney (one who goes to court) in the last month, three months, or six months).
Ask to see their refund policy in writing. They don't have one.
Ask what exactly an Federal Regulatory Complaint (FRC) will get you. And once they given you the response. ASK FOR CONFIRMED PROOF. There is none. THey just file them and that's that. They don't care whether they achieve what is promised. IF they did, they'd be able to show you some results.
The website is lenderlawlitigation.com Look how many attorneys there are. Ask them how many clients the attorneys have (not all of them go to court, one is a "compliance attorney"). Ask why you aren't entitled to a refund?
Ask why they associate with Mr. Deepak S. Parwatikar, bar #187683. He owns "Pinnacle Law Center" "Balanced Legal Group" and is affiliated with "Legal Justice Law Center" another scam.
Ask why they don't just come out and admit that their sales people are just sales people? Why the pretense of calling them "case managers"? Ask why you have to call customer service to get case updates and can't speak with an attorney or paralegal. Ask why the sales team has NO LEGAL TRAINING at all! They are paid to make money off of you.
Ask why they are signing people up over the phone? Big red flag, there. If you are not in the state and can't ask questions face to face, do not go with them. Too many people have been burned. It is best to hire a local attorney in your state.
If you get a mailer from them. Send it to the California Bar or your state bar and ask them to investigate the legality of the mailer. http://www.calbar.ca.gov/Attorneys/LawyerRegulation/ClientSecurityFund.aspx
Look at the grounds for what is considered dishonest conduct. "Failure to refund unearned attorney fees paid to the lawyer in advance where the lawyer performed no services, or an insignificant portion of the services;" This almost certainly applies. They charge up front and do very little work.
What need do they have to charge people $6000 for an individual lawsuit and then an additional $1500/month and you can't even speak to your attorney when necessary. This is an outrage.
