"You should never practice law like it's an assembly line," said Boyle, who filed a complaint last month in Sarasota against GMAC and Stern's law firm. Filing the foreclosure before the owner was verified meant Contreras' credit score took a hit and his home remains in foreclosure limbo.
On Friday, Boyle's biggest problem was not tracking down members of her proposed class action but tracking down the lawyer from Stern's firm who is handling the foreclosure case against Contreras. The last attorney handling the case left the firm without filing a notice of withdrawal with the court, Boyle said. She does not know who is handling the case.
