A Woburn law firm that assists banks in foreclosing on homeowners is facing eviction.
Connolly, Geaney, Ablitt & Willard, which is at 304 Cambridge St., is behind on rent, stopped paying insurance premiums and bounded checks, reported Mass Lawyers Weekly.
According to Mass Lawyers Weekly:
“Many of the problems surfaced with the departure of the firm’s chief financial officer, Robert F. Feige, in February. Feige’s checkered past includes numerous allegations and findings of financial misdeeds. For example, a federal consent judgment in 2009 required him to restore more than $25,000 to Michael Benes Communications’ 401(k) plan and barred him from overseeing retirement plans in the future. The U.S. Department of Labor had accused Feige of failing 'to forward employee salary deferrals to the plan and to take prudent steps to collect contributions owed to the plan,' according to a DOL summary of the case.
“While partner Kevin P. Geaney steadfastly insists that Connolly, Geaney, Ablitt & Willard 'is presently growing and is clearly moving in a positive direction for the future,' former employees, public records and other documents tell a different story.”
