I recently sighned up to do a modification with these guys. Everything started out well, they told me there was no reason they could see that it would be a problem. The file started to get passed around to different areas. this made me a little nervous therefore I delayed a second payment on my account. Steve Etchinson called to say they only had recieved one payment on my account I told him I would send another payment to get the mod done but when I tried to contact them back Via phone and email I got no response. They told me at the beggining that they would refund my money if they could not make it happen. After three weeks of trying to contact them I assume they are a scam and would highly recommend that everyone stay away from this piece of garbage Steve Etchinson. All he is out to do is take your money don't listen to anything they say.

    information
    out that as far as Patrick Drury, he is basically innocent. The checks that bounced did have Patrick's name os them, but they where not from patrick's office. what most people do not see is that these attorney's really had nothing to do with anything, they where just names. Neither the office in Flrida nor Illinois ever did the laon mitigating (processing) Only Arizona which is not an attorney's office, and they are outsourced by several attorney's offices, and other loan mod companies...

    Beware
    the main attorney, Patrick Drury. I have now prepared a complaint that I will be sending out to the Attorney Grievance Commission of Illinois on both Drury and Chastain, and I am also filing a complaint with the Illinois Attorney General. Maybe then I can get them to respond. Do not use this company, it is a scam!!! I will be actively seeking a refund of my $3450 and unlucky for them, I work in a law office so I will be going after them as long as it takes to get my money back...

    And also told me that the Merger with Patrick Drury did not go through. and basically said 'no comment' when asked if I was scammed. I am calling the attorney General today to see what options are available to reclaim my money. Probably none. I feel like a complete IDIOT- I should have known better...

    Beware
    Someone gave me a number to Patrick Drury. He NEVER answered the phone which seems to be a trend with this law group, not to mention returning my call or having someone coorespond with me via mail, email, or phone. Sarah did not know what to say. She gave me Amy's number 1-800-501-0907 ext 117, which seems not be operable all of sudden as of today...
