Marc Zirogiannis Implicated in HLA Loan Modification Scam
The Hawaii Office of Consumer Protection names Marc Zirogiannis in their investigation of a loan modification scheme that may have affected hundreds of distressed homeowners. The Hawaii Reporter states:
Hundreds of distressed homeowners facing foreclosure in Hawaii were likely misled by a loan modification program operated by the Homeowner Legal Assistance Association (HLAA), a Florida corporation, for approximately 17 months in 2009 and 2010, according to an investigation conducted by the Hawaii Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs’ (DCCA) Office of Consumer Protection (OCP)…
From January through sometime in September 2009, HLAA referred all of its Hawaii cases to Marc Zirogiannis, a New York lawyer, who charged a standard retainer fee of $2,750…
OCP pursued enforcement actions against the two lawyers and related entities both here in Hawaii and through New York’s legal disciplinary agencies. Zirogiannis has since been disbarred by the State of New York…
“All of the money that was paid by Hawaii consumers was paid under retainer agreements with these New York attorneys for legal services, and yet it does not appear as though the lawyers provided any legal services. Neither of these out of state lawyers could legally provide the promised services here in Hawaii since both attorneys were not licensed to practice law in our state,” according to OCP Executive Director Bruce Kim.

They took $3,000.00 for loan mod. Kept us hanging for 8 months. Finally we contacted our mortgage company and they never received anything from these people.

Once this was all exposed, Marc became very scared. He faked a suicide to gain sympathy and claim insanity in court. I can’t f×cking believed that it worked. That piece of crap was given NO JAIL TIME!
He went to a facility to deal with his ‘suicidal’ issue. He knew what he was doing to avoid prison. Marc is a snake in the grass times 10. He charmed people to death as he ripped them off. He had the wholesome boy next act down to a tee. Thank God he lost his license to practice any law.
He now: writes books, editor in chief of Taekwondo Life magazine (which is hilarious), referee taekwondo matches and he claims that he is a 2nd degree black belt in taekwondo (which sounds seriously suspect). He was a taxi driver around the Hicksville LIRR station area. He divorced his wife and ended up with one of his office workers that is at least a decade younger than him. Her family, whom were good friends to him, is PISSED as SH!T.
