The Bills

The Illinois Administrator has filed a complaint alleging billing fraud in three foreclosure actions.

The complaint contends

Respondent’s entries on the billing statements provided to [client] Garcia were false, and Respondent knew they were false, because Respondent double-billed, and, in some instances, triple-billed Garcia for the performance of identical work on each billing statement. In addition, Respondent billed excessive time at her attorney rate of $175 per hour for administrative tasks such as photocopying client documents and organization of client files, and also billed time for meetings and phone calls that never took place.
