The alleged Real Estate Law Center scams are bogus. They are only alleged because this law firm is doing great work. But don’t believe everything you read. Here are some facts.

If you search “Real Estate Law Center scam” on Google, Yahoo or Bing, you will find hundreds of pages of comments made by anonymous people or folks who have few facts to back up their claims.

In an effort to provide some facts, this is a short response to a few of these claims.

One very nice blogger talks about how an advertisement sent out by the Real Estate Law Center is a scam simply because they are making bold claims about the efficiency of the “mass tort” procedure and their ability to assist homeowners to recover some of the damages that they might have incurred.

The problem is that he not only doesn’t have any facts, other than his fear that something might be wrong to back up his claim of a potential scam.

In fact, in a bit of irony, the advertisement he quotes regards a mass tort filing that the Real Estate Law Center was planning on filing against Wells Fargo Bank, based in San Francisco.

This alleged Real Estate Law Center scam turns out to look even sillier when one looks up Case Number BC514294 in Los Angeles Superior Court. The case is titled “Juan Aguilar, et al, v. Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.” This is the very mass tort that this gentleman is concerned is a Real Estate Law Center scam.

Another alleged Real Estate Law Center scam that is laughable is that this is a “fly by night” operation. That would be true… if it weren’t for the openness that the Real Estate Law Center about who works there and what the attorney names are.

Chad T-W Pratt, Susan Murphy, Tala Rezai and Marilyn Yee are the Real Estate Law Center attorneys. It’s not much of a Real Estate Law Center scam when these professionals put their name on it. Not only that, but they list their education and share other easily verifiable information about themselves and their attorney ratings.

Another of the allegations that is leveled is that these folks hide behind salespeople and others.

Yes, Real Estate Law Center has sales people. So does every other organization. They make their money by representing people in court. Selling that service is not in itself a bad thing. This alleged Real Estate Law Center scam goes on to say that there are no real people at Real Estate Law Center to do the legal work. Well, this is one of those jokes that is so easily disproved, it hardly warrants an answer. The Real Estate Law Center attorneys have appeared on television as expert advisors to talk about mortgage scams and discuss the damage done by the banks and mortgage companies. They aren’t hiding very well when they are on the evening news.

One of the most insidious of the alleged Real Estate Law Center scams is that people pay the center and don’t get what they asked for. In other words, they are told that the firm will take action on their case as part of a mass tort. Unfortunately for some of these folks, waiting for a mass tort case is too long. Perhaps there are misunderstandings, perhaps there is a bit of wishful thinking, but a by definition a mass tort case is going to take a while to assemble and file. In the recently filed Wells Fargo mass tort case, there is a page and a half of plaintiffs, individuals looking to get some justice from the bank. Each of those people had to have their individual case reviewed and then filed as part of the case.

If something doesn’t sound right, not just with the Real Estate Law Center, but with any legal matter ever, ask for it in writing. In the case above, the vaguely named complainer, claims he was told not to pay his mortgage. Make them send you a letter saying that. Otherwise, it’s hearsay and therefore not a legitimate complaint. That does not qualify as a Real Estate Law Center scam.
