California Bar Journal reports arrest of attorney for loan modification fraud

This is the story of an attorney who is about to lose his right to practice law.

The California Bar Journal reported that Christopher Lee Diener (#187890) is being charged by the Orange County District Attorney’s Office with one count of conspiracy to commit grand theft, 116 counts of grand theft by false pretenses and one count of perjury. Prosecutors allege that Diener, Stefano Joseph Marrero and Terrence Green Sr. set up a loan modification business using the names Home Relief Services, LLC; US Loan Mod Processing, HRS Communications, the Diener Law Firm and Diener Law Group. Marrero and Green were the managing partners and Christopher Diener was the attorney.

Marrero and Green promised borrowers in default that they could facilitate loan modifications in 90 days if the borrowers made advance payments (illegal in California) to Diener. California Attorney General Jerry Brown has filed a claim for civil penalties against all three men, who have also received a desist and refrain order from the California Department of Real Estate to forbid them from soliciting new clients.
