Colorado’s second-largest foreclosure law firm allegedly padded
attorney expenses, pocketed refunds due its clients and made millions of
dollars by running side companies affiliated with its foreclosure work
and overcharging for it, a lawyer-turned-whistle-blower has told state
Susan Hendrick laid out over several meetings with the Colorado
attorney general’s office a pattern of alleged abuse and misconduct that
stretched out for years at Aronowitz & Mecklenburg, the Denver law
firm where she was a lawyer, according to documents unsealed in a
lawsuit that would have shielded them from public view.
Meanwhile, an Aronowitz employee said in an affidavit that Hendrick
admitted to coming forward with personal financial gain as her goal.
