Philly Foreclosure Mill Sweatshop Does Quick Name Change In Effort To Save Firm, 'Rebrand' Soiled Reputation After Accusations In Robosigner Suit

In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the Philadelphia Business Journal reports:

  • Goldbeck McCafferty & McKeever, the Philadelphia law firm that represents lenders in residential foreclosure disputes, has changed its name to KML Law Group in a major restructuring effort.

  • The change reflects the departure of firm president Gary McCafferty and an interest in rebranding in the wake of a lawsuit filed against the firm late last year.

  • The firm was sued last November in Allegheny County Common Pleas Court for allegedly using paralegals instead of lawyers to sign legal papers related to foreclosures and accused of the unauthorized practice of law.

  • McCafferty resigned from the firm after the suit was filed.
