Why you should care about unfair arbitration and what you can do about it

Please click the link below for a blog by my friend, and outstanding consumer attorney Ron Burdge:

Congress Looks at UNfair Arbitration and introduces a bill to stop it 

 Here's a sample of the post:

"Did you know that most of the time you get a cell phone, you are agreeing that no matter what happens you won't take the cell phone company to court? Did you know that many employers now require that too, if you want them to hire you? Did you know that even some car dealers won't sell you a car unless you agree you won't sue them if they rip you off? It's true, but it doesn't have to be that way."

Please read the rest, then take action as suggested in the blog!

If you have any questions on this issue, your are welcome to contact me.

Ohio foreclosure "rescue" company gets sued by Ohio Attorney General

Click here for the story.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer is reporting that the Ohio Attorney General has sued a company called "The Modification Group LLC" and one of its officers, Robert Walker.  According to the suit, the company claimed it would help consumers get mortgage loan modifications, but charged high fees, did not help consumers properly, and violated multiple consumer protection laws.

If you have been victimized by a mortgage modification company, a debt negotiation company or debt collector, you can complain to the Ohio Attorney General.  You can also phone me to arrange a free initial consultation.
