Need an attorney to take over Los Angeles Superior Court Case BC452266 as law firm was raided by State Bar

Asked about 3 years ago - La Quinta, CA

This is a case against OneWest Bank, one of six filed by a law firm in Calabasas, CA;
complaint alleges six causes of action related to loans/foreclosure/loan modifications.
Case was apparently removed to Federal court; uncertain whether it was remanded back to state court; it is a mass joinder; my name has yet to be added to complaint.
