Foreclosure Rescue Scams (cont'd)

A settlement agreement on behalf of a number of victims of Brockton attorney Alec G. Sohmer has been submitted to the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for approval. Attorney Sohmer operated a "foreclosure rescue" scheme which resulted in the payment of substantial fees to himself and family members and which ultimately harmed many of the homeowners, some of whom lost their properties. The proposed settlement is with a number of banks and mortgage companies which financed Sohmer's activities, and does not affect claims against Sohmer himself or other responsible parties. Quat Law Offices has been representing a victim who, in fact, lost her home due to the misconduct of Sohmer.
