New York’s largest foreclosure law firm, Steven J. Baum, whose clients include Bank of America, Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo, is under fire after photos from the company’s 2010 Halloween party were released to the New York Times by a former employee.

The party apparently had a tasteless “homeless” theme, and the pictures depict staff seemingly mocking the very homeowners their company put out on the street. One photo shows a row of “foreclosed homes,” while another depicts employees dressed as homeless squatters.

Some reader comments left on the Times pieces and on other sites covering the story called the party “beyond the pale of basic human decency” and “disgusting.”

In a statement on Saturday, Baum apologized and said that the photos “obviously were in poor taste.”

Take a look and decide for yourself:
