Abrupt Closure of Mann Bracken’s Offices Causes Chaos

The abrupt closure of Rockville based debt collection law firm Mann Bracken’s 24 offices nationwide has plunged Maryland regulators, courts and consumers into chaos over the last several days.

“It’s a large undertaking, and it involves every district in the state,” said Mark Kaufman, Maryland’s deputy commissioner of financial regulation. “Those cases are all over the state. It’s every county in Maryland. There are hundreds of cases in every county in this state – and that’s probably conservative.”

Mann Bracken principals blamed the firm’s collapse on Axiant’s November bankruptcy filing, a company managing its support services.

Consumers with pending lawsuits should contact the administrative clerk of the jurisdiction where their case was filed, said a spokesman for the Maryland Judiciary.

Mann Bracken and its clients have been accused in civil lawsuits of failing to comply with debt-collection laws and of using high pressure tactics to harass borrowers.
