New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has sued a Brooklyn law firm and its partner for allegedly participating in a fraudulent mortgage rescue scheme. The suit was filed Wednesday against Gennady Litvin and two firms where he is a principal partner, Litvin Law Firm in Brooklyn and Litvin, Torrens & Associates in Miami.

Schneiderman v. Litvin Law Firm, 452308/2014, filed in Manhattan Supreme Court (See Petition), alleged the two firms, directly and through third-party marketers, deceptively induced homeowners to pay a $595 or $750 monthly fee by representing the firm would provide a comprehensive legal plan so homeowners could avoid foreclosure or obtain a mortgage modification.
