Six years ago, former Attorney General Martha Coakley launched an investigation into Newton-based foreclosure firm Harmon Law Offices PC, concerned it was violating certain eviction and foreclosure laws.
Last spring, the new Attorney General Maura Healey quietly settled the case without the company admitting to, or the office finding, any wrongdoing. Still, Harmon agreed to make a $66,500 donation to the state’s Local Consumer Aid Fund, according to the settlement document obtained by the New England Center for Investigative Reporting.
The Attorney General’s office released the agreement after a request from NECIR. “The settlement agreement resolves all of our claims and our investigation into those claims,’’ the office said in a statement.
