Additional Information:
Although litigation with The Castle Law Group is ongoing, Aronowitz & Mecklenburg entered into a $13 million consent judgment, $3 million of which is suspended pending compliance with the entirety of the judgment. Because of this consent judgment, which a Denver District Court approved on July 21, 2014, the Aronowitz & Mecklenburg law firm will close its doors, and the Attorney General will use a substantial portion of the judgment to compensate homeowners. The Attorney General’s Office is currently assessing how to best distribute these funds. For more information regarding these lawsuits, see the Attorney General’s Press Release, the Castle Complaint, the Aronowitz Complaint, and the Aronowitz Consent Judgment.
