Fisher and Shapiro's Cases Suspended

The Chicago Tribune reports that the Circuit Court of Cook County has stayed nearly 1,700 foreclosure cases filed by Fisher and Shapiro LLC.  The sanction came after the large foreclsoure law firm disclosed to the Court it changed the contents of affidavits after the documents were signed by their clients.  The law firm was ordered to vacate all judgments of foreclosures and any judicial sales that have occurred on the affected cases, and then file new motions for relief.  I haven't heard anything other than what is in this article.  If anyone else has specific information about this situation that's fit to print, we'd love to hear about it in the comments.  Thanks.

This is an interesting article. I do not know much about foreclosure law firms but I hear they can be very powerful. I wounder what the different between these law firms and others. All I know is, hiring a lawyer is always good idea because you never know when your being taking advantage off. My brother needed a lawyer so I told him to learn about Marshall Davis Brown JR because I knew his knowledge would be perfect for my brothers situation. Also, he makes sure you get the right information all the time.
