Class Eligibility

You are a member of the Settlement Class if you were sent a Trott PC Foreclosure Letter dated between August 11, 2009, and June 29, 2018. You should have received a postcard with Claim Form from the Claims Administrator if you are a member of the Settlement Class. Different individuals in the same household may each have received a separate postcard. In that case, each such individual is a Class Member according to Trott Law PC’s records.

If you believe you may be a member of the Settlement Class but did not receive a postcard, immediately contact the Claims Administrator by mail or phone and request that a claims package be sent to your current address. Please include the address of the property that was the subject of your Trott PC Foreclosure Letter. If you did not receive a postcard, but request a claims package, the Claims Administrator will first have to confirm from a review of the applicable records whether or not you are Settlement Class member.

Case Name

Martin, et al. v. Trott Law PC, et al.
Case No. 2:15-cv-12838
U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan

Case Summary

The Complaint alleges that the Trott PC Foreclosure Letter (referred to as “fair debt letters”), violate both statutes in each of three ways:

      By misleadingly suggesting that they were from an attorney when no attorney had engaged in a “meaningfully review” of homeowners’ accounts before the letters were sent;
      By “overshadowing,” in a subset of the letters mentioning possible reinstatement of the mortgage, the federal validation rights of homeowners (e.g., the right to dispute or seek certain information about the debt within 30 days); and
      By use of the misleading undefined phrase “Corporate Advances” in a subset of the letters.

Defendants have maintained throughout the case that the Trott PC Foreclosure Letter complies with federal and state fair debt laws in all respects and deny any wrongdoing.

    I want my money back asap

    ADMIN – Hi Jessica,

    The money given in this case is punitive in nature and not a refund. You will most likely receive it once all appeals have cleared.

    Good Evening,
    I didn’t receive a postcard confused as to why because Trott filed on behalf of Chase. I called the Admin# which is gargled and breaks up hope it’s not intentional. I’d greatly appreciate if the adimin can contact me to verify claim.

    ADMIN – Hi LMP,

    If you are having trouble reaching out to the admin try contacting class counsel.

    I posted a comment on 8/6/18 in which I’ve attempted to contact the administrator several times now. The phone has a muffled recording and no way to leave a message. I did not receive info to be part of the suit and was sent correspondence from Trott on behalf of Chase.

    ADMIN – Hi La Shawn,

    Try reaching out to class counsel. Here is their contact info:

    I was involved in foreclosure in the year of 2007. I went to court and lost in court because the judge refused to support the wet ink promissory note to produce it in court.

  8. Stephanie Osborne-Graham says:

    I THINK WE SHOULD ALL OBJECT TO THE POTENTIAL AWARD THEY CAUSED HARM TO OUR FAMILIES, NOT THE ATTORNEYS OR THAT NON PROFIT THAT THEY ARE DONATING TO

  10. Donna says:

    We got their letters. We actually met with some of Trott’s attorneys. They treated us like we were lowlife crap. And to think people in my state actually voted one of the former principals of this firm to Congress. How disgusting.
    My husb and I look forward to receiving our checks.
    BTW….we are still in the house, no thanks to Trott OR Bank of America.

    ADMIN – Hi Donna,
