Review Moss Sidell
  • Good Fortune to Find Moss Sidell

    Posted by Helene

    We started working with Moss Sidell at the hight of the foreclosure crisis. Our bank was unwilling to speak to us, giving us the run around. We thought we had secured an agreement ourselves and were told basically, the agreement was in the mail. Then one day a foreclosure letter appeared, with our mortgage payment returned. After trying to find the “free” help the governor had promised we heard Moss on the radio promising help. I called and spoke to a team member and told her about the letter. This was not a warning letter, this was it, 90 days house is gone. In the 11th hour of a years long struggle, we hired Moss Sidell and his team. We brought in all our paper work and he assured us he would do his best. Since our mortgage company had returned our check, we used that to pay him. Moss fought for our house, argued with the auctioneer, as our bank would not even listen to him. Luckily for us, we had Moss, and at the auction no one bought our house.

    Moss actually wrote a letter to the executive offices of our bank detailing all the calls and all the excuses he was given and notified them we qualified for HARP. Someone at the executive offices, actually read the letter and looked into our case. Moss was able to wrench our house back now from Fannie Mae, who held our mortgage. When he called us, after our house had now been foreclosed on, to tell us there was still a glimmer of hope and not to sign any rental agreements, I asked him why he wrote the letter. Moss told me it really angered him the bank did that to us. If we had hired Moss earlier in our process I am completely confident it never would have went so far.

    Moss and I spoke the day of the foreclosure, he was trying to stop it via phone with bank and auctioneer. He made sure I was not home and my kids were safe as foreclosures invite crowds. I was very emotional and just accepted that the bank was on a mission to take our house. Not only did Moss get our house back, but our mortgage payment went down $500.00 a month.

    It's been a few years since we have worked with Moss and we have engaged his services again regarding the title to our house. I feel confident in his honesty and tenaciousness. I know without question he will do his best and let us know exactly the way it is. If you are in trouble do not think you can handle it yourself. Make the investment, it is well worth having Moss on your side.

    Sidell Law was able to guide me through a very difficult post-divorce issue regarding property that my ex-wife and I still shared. They conducted themselves thoughtfully and professionally in a very emotionally-charged situation and educated me on all my available options. I am very happy with the result and would highly recommend their services.

    I posted a review last month about Moss Sidell, I hired him as my Lawyer and gave him a sizable retainer, he couldn't help me & referred my to another attorney as he told me he was not a litigator. In the previous complaint filed by someone 2 weeks ago, he said he was a litigator. This man lacks the experience and knowledge to be a lawyer and I want my money back.

    i hired this lawyer also to complete a loan modification.Once he got his fee, we never heard from him til we received a summons he didn't know what to do so we had to hire an experienced lawyer in Boston.
    we found him to be inexperienced and unprofessional.

    Moss M Sidell’s response: “I have no idea who this client is, and it appears that they never contacted me about having received a summons. In the last 3 years we have handled over 240 loan modification clients and have been successful in obtaining a loan modification over 90% of the time. We also do litigation frequently, so a statement saying that we didn't know what to do with a summons would be completely inaccurate. If this person has an issue, I would encourage that he contact our office directly to resolve it instead of anonymously attempting to smear our fine reputation.”

    I hired this "Lawyer" to assist with a loan modification with a signed fee agreement that guaranteed a full refund if he was unsuccessful. Well, he was unsuccessful and refuses to refund my retainer. He says he was never my attorney and a man I never met or spoke with in New York was my attorney. I called the New York guy who says he never heard of me and he is not even a lawyer.

    Moss M Sidell’s response: “I have no idea who this supposed client was since he has failed to identify himself properly. However, my law firm, Sidell Law Offices, P.C. has never offered a full refund policy. This person was never a client of my law firm and appears to have some unknown interest in defaming me. The New York guy that he is talking about is most likely the President of American Consultants, Inc., named Phil Cervone, who I worked for and allegedly absconded with several thousands of dollars from the company, which may have included this person's fees to refund, if indeed he was a client. I never represented him individually, as was quite clear in his contract, as I was only an employee of the company, and represented the company only as General Counsel.”

    I came to Sidell Law Offices, after having attempted repeatedly to modify my mortgage on my own. I refused to give up! Moss Sidell and his professional staff were able to help me way beyond my wildest dreams! I had not paid my mortgage in over 50 months, owing $175,000 in back payments. Sidell Law Offices not only lowered my payments by almost $3,000 per month with a 2% interest rate, but they were able to get me a principal reduction in my loan of about $325,000! I would never have been able to stay in my home without the skills and expertise of Sidell Law Offices. K.R.
