MLG Law Firm from california ( a lawyer named Jessie Rodriguez ,kept calling me wanting to help in our situation..We had to stop foreclosure of our home with Chapter 13.. They are now apparently contacting our mortgage company, and want about 4,000 to re -do or modify our loan...dont know what to do..Are they legit & can they help us?
Check with the Washington Bar Association to see if this firm is licensed to practice in your state. I presume you are resolving the delinquency on your mortgage payments through your Chapter 13. Some Chapter 13 cases can provide for a loan modification program under the supervision of the Trustee, so discuss with your attorney. Hope this perspective helps!
