The FTC adopted the MARS Rule, which went into effect on December 29, 2010, to address deceptive and unfair trade practices. CFLA works to educate business regarding the necessity to conform to the MARS Rule.
Online PR News – 28-June-2013 – Los Angeles, CA – Since 2007, CFLA has been the leader in the Foreclosure Defense Industry on compliance with State and Federal Regulations while offering State Bar Continuing Education Courses on Ethics, and Warning Attorneys and Mortgage Professionals of existing and new legislation in the area of Compliance Regulation, including the MARS RULE. Through CFLA’s national network of Attorneys and Mortgage professionals through public events, we have reached tens of thousands of business professionals aspiring to work in this industry.
CFLA has taken additional steps in requiring employees to execute MARS RULES acknowledgements, and requiring CFLA clients to also execute MARS RULES acknowledgements. It has long been our goal to educate the Public of the dangers of “Foreclosure Relief Services” with empty promises who sell “Forensic Loan Audits” and Securitization Audits” to the general public as a “save your home strategy.”
CFLA President Andrew P. Lehman, J.D. has also issued several press releases to the general public warning homeowners of purchasing these services without adequate legal representation.
Mr. Lehman as one of the original founders of CFLA is widely recognized as establishing the Industry Bar for Education and Training in this field, developing CLE Courses in CA, NV, IL, NY, NJ, FL, GA, and TX, which include materials in support of these sound legal principles.

CFLA has also pioneered the development and advancement of the Mortgage Securitization Auditor Training Certification (40) hour training program which requires graduates to adhere to the CFLA Code of Ethics, in addition to the MARS RULE, as well as all State and Federal Laws. If Certified Graduates are reported to CFLA Management as having violated any of these rules, CFLA will take remedial action as against the graduate up to and including revocation of their certification.

CFLA is exclusively a business-to-business wholesaler of litigation support services to licensed attorneys and compliant non-profit organizations and real estate professionals.
Our founding vision at CFLA was for Attorneys and Legal Professionals to utilize cutting edge trade secrets and industry professionals to assist them in the training, research, and work product development necessary to litigate on behalf of their homeowner clients. We brought together some of the best minds in the legal and technological fields to make this vision a reality. The result is CFLA, the leading, nationally recognized legal brand for law firms, attorneys, and small business in the United States.
From the beginning, our mission was to set new standards for convenience and service in an industry not typically known for great customer care. For us, the goal is not simply to provide a smart, cost-effective alternative—it’s to make sure everyone gets the legal protection they need.
Since opening our virtual doors, CFLA has rapidly expanded to become the premier online legal destination for small businesses and consumers. But as the company continues to grow, we’re careful to hold true to our original vision. For us, putting the law within reach of millions of people is more than just a novel idea—it’s the founding principle.
