A Follow-Up on Legal Helpers Debt Resolution – More Problems For the Company?
Posted on Jul 11, 2012 in Debt Settlement, Illinois
Every state has a regulatory body that oversees regulation and registration for lawyers. For Illinois, that body is the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission, or ARDC. In June, the ARDC filed a complaint against the principal attorneys, Thomas Macey and Jeffrey Aleman. The complaint alleges that the attorneys breached a fiduciary duty, failed to consult with clients, assisted non-lawyers in the practice of law, and commited other acts that breached Illinois professional duties.
At least 36 individuals paid them anywhere from $150 to $2258 to assist with debt resolution. Guess what? They weren’t happy with the results.
