My Wife and I were sold a Time Share Membership and were promised the sky. We then found out that this membership was for 99 years and a lot of deceptive sales practices occurred during the sale (stating real value, E-Z Transfer ETC). No one could help us and those who claimed they could, were Frauds with irrelevant business licences. Finn law group is Professional, Understanding, hard working and was a God send to resolve and end this contract in short order. I highly recommend their service. You won't be sorry

When I decided to get rid of my Cancun timeshare, I took a chance and hired the Finn Law Group. My instincts were good after the first contact and I promptly paid the required fee. It took about a year but the other day I got a letter from the resort recinding our contract. Thank God! What was really unexpected was that Joel Osbourne offered to refund some of the initial down money to help me with the final arrangementt with the Mexican resort. I can't say one bad thing about the Finn Law Group. They are at the top of their field and I would have no problem reccommending their services to anyone.
Thanks, again Finn Law Group!

We had a timeshare for quite some time and when we tried to sell it unsuccessfully, I learned on the internet how unlawfully we had been treated according to Florida law by our time share co.
Michael Finn's office has very capable professionals, who along with Mr. Finn, negotiated a successful termination of our mortgage and return of the deed of our timeshare to the timeshare company.
Our credit report is clean and our timeshare debt is gone. If you are looking for a competent representative to take on the timeshare companies, I could not recommend the firm of Michael Finn more highly!!

I would like to recommend Eric Monsma who works for Finn law group. Eric was incredibly professional and was able to address my legal issues quickly and successfully. Eric was tenacious in fighting for my case and getting a successful resolution. I never felt that my case was too small or not important. Wonderful service.

Like many other people over the years got talked into a timeshare. Almost immediately things came to light that they, of course, never told us about. Fortunately we found Michael Finn's law firm and with their help we were able to rid ourselves of this encumbrance. They were very professional in my dealing with them and yet Michael was very down to earth any time I spoke with him. His associate Joel Osborne was just as professional and answered any queries promptly.

My son hired Finn Law Group to resolve a timeshare ownership issue with a developer. A senior associate handled the case and got the deed recorded back to the developer. It took quite a bit of time, but the case was resolved and handled very professionally..

The Michael D. Finn law firm helped release me from my timeshare contract. Twelve years ago I co-signed a timeshare contract with a "friend" who skipped town and left me with the monthly payments and the maintenance fees. Without her signature, I couldn't rent it, sell it, or get rid of it. Thank God for the Finn Law Group who quickly and painlessly ended my nightmare. My credit score was unaffected because the FLG has developed effective business relationships with the timeshare establishment. Thanks Michael D. Finn!

The process took a few months and a little bit more money, but we got the result we were hoping for,to be free of our Time Share contract. We are glad we went through the process.

Mr. Finn represented me in a contract matter and was an effective advocate of my position in the dispute. He succeeded in resolving the dispute in a very favorable result for me and my family.

I bought a time share (and won't mention the name here) in Las Vegas.. boy that was an expensive mistake and one that caused my wife and I a lot of undue stress trying to get out of it. I wish I called them first, but they were the last resort I could think of after endless scouring of the internet. Not only were they able to get us out of a terrible deal, but they did it so fast and with so much knowledge and professionalism. I am extremely ecstatic that they were able to get us out hassle free and with so much enthusiasm. I can't recommend them highly enough. I was weary when we had to put some money down first but it was well worth it.

Finn law group from day one was honest and to the point. They guided me though all aspects of my complaint.

They will fight and guide you in every detail. James Walker

Had a major issue with the least reputable of the big timeshare companies. They were basically holding my credit...and career hostage because of it. Searched for a long time for an attorney with 'guts'. I had over 20 different attorneys and/or firms just said "Sorry, can't help you...It's not worth our time or money". The folks at Finn Law took up the challenge. It took a few months but problem solved. Heroes each and every one. If you not sure about Mike Finn or his people, fear not. The worst mistake you could make is not hiring these guys. Oh....and I have a very low opinion of most lawyers. Mike and his guys are among the few good guys. I can't say enough good words about his crew: Greg, Joel, and Katheryn. Love those guys. Finn Law.

I would like to take the time to fully comment on the services rendered by the Finn Law Group. We hired the Finn Law Group after a exhausted search to find a attorney to help us with getting us released from our timeshare obligation. We were frustrated and felt hopelessly lost after signing into a timeshare. We were misled by the high pressure sales tactics of the bottom feeders that represented the resort. When we tried to inquire about our timeshare we were treated like we didn't exist and got the run around. Everything we thought we were getting with the timeshare was a sham and felt like we were just throwing our money away. I have never felt so violated in my life and all we wanted was to get out of our contract. We did not know where to turn until we found the Finn Law Group. I can not begin to give credit where credit is due. The Finn Law Group made us feel welcomed and they sincerely cared about our situation. They talked us thru the whole process, they explained what to expect and what not to expect. The Staff at Finn Law group are the most professional people I have ever dealt with, they were courteous and sincere and they always made themselves available. I want to personally say Thank You to them. To Michael Finn, I would also like to give a Thank You for your hard work and perseverance in bringing our case to a close. If I ever need another attorney I would not hesitate to call your firm, Job well done. To anyone who is in need of a timeshare attorney please be aware there is a law firm that can handle your needs, Call The Finn Law Group. Please keep in mind the following , The fee is worth the results ! Don't feel your situation is hopeless, be patient and let Michael Finn do his job. If anyone would like to personally contact me for any questions get in touch with the Finn Law Group and I would be happy to help. Again, Thank You so much to the Finn Law Group you are the best!!

My Father hired Finn Law Group to help out with some debt and credit issues. Eric Monsma from Mr. Finn’s staff promptly got the creditors called stopped and was able to arrange settlements with several creditors. He also assisted my Father by working with the U.S. Department of Education to have some old student loan debt forgiven based on my Father’s disability! Mr. Monsma also helped my Father by clearing up his negative credit, and helped him establish new positive credit instead. During a visit to Cabela’s recently, my Father applied for a Cabela’s charge card and was approved for a $3000 limit! No more creditor calls, a new credit score of almost 700, and the student loan debts are gone…my Father couldn’t be happier! We would recommend Mr. Finn and his expert staff to anyone!

We were in a TimeShare for years. When we got older and needed to get out of it, we tried to sell it with no luck. When we purchased it the resort said they were very easy to sell and usually at a profit, well so much for what they said. Quite by accident we came in contact with Finn Law Group and Michael Finn. He was able to end our relationship with the resort in about 16 months, the resort was very difficult to deal with, but he got it done. THANKS A MILLION MR FINN ! ! ! !

I owned a timeshare week at a resort for many years. I generally made some use of it each year, so was happy to pay the annual maintenance fee each year. Then one year my preferences in recreation and vacations changed radically, and I had no further use for the timeshare week. I tried to sell it, but could not find a buyer at any price. I tried giving it away, but no takers, not even any charities. Although this was a deeded type of timeshare, I found that this piece of real estate which I had paid thousands of dollars for was now worth next to nothing. I offered to deed it back to the resort, and was ignored. I then informed them that I wanted nothing more to do with the timeshare and that I would no longer be paying annual maintenance fees.
The next surprise was that under state law as long as I was the owner of record, I was obligated to pay fees each year. Since I had bought it "used" from a private party instead of directly from the resort, that little detail was not disclosed to me at the time of purchase. I was always given the impression that the fee was merely to entitle me to use of the week.
8 years went by, and the fees, interest, penalties, and collection agency add-ons kept multiplying. Soon I had a total amount supposedly due, for nearly as much as I had purchased the week for! Fearing potential threats to my assets, and even possibly to my estate and heirs, I began looking for an attorney specializing in timeshare issues. Although this area of law seems to be avoided by most attorneys, Michael Finn of Finn Law Group stood out as one of the courageous few. I retained him to represent me and find a solution to the problems.
Mr. Finn and his group were outstandingly successful in negotiating the resort's acceptance of a deed of the timeshare week back to them, in lieu of foreclosure and other costs. Although I got nothing back from equity in the "property" (because its value had dropped to nearly nothing), I was relieved of past unpaid assessments and any future obligation to pay them. The legal fee I was charged was very reasonable for the services I received. I am exceptionally pleased with the service provided by Michael Finn and Finn Law Group.

We contacted the Finn Law Group for help ridding my wife and I of a timeshare whose maintenance fees we could no longer afford. In a matter of 4 months they took care of transferring the timeshare back to the resort with no personal involvement on our part. The fee was reasonable and the Finn Law Group even paid the transfer fee out of our retainer. We have total confidence in their professionalism and expertise in this area. We will use them in the future, without doubt, when 2 other timeshares we still have are no longer affordable due to the rising cost of maintenance fees

My husband & I joined a "vacation club" in Mexico when we were there in May, 2012. Three days after we got home, we found out that he had to start dialysis -- which means no vacation anywhere, especially outside of the country. I called the vacation club, but we were 2 days past the cancellation window (which was only 5 days anyway). On top of the stress of his medical condition, we had to deal with this investment that we were never going to get to use. I did some research and contacted Attorney Finn. They had knowledge of the place we were dealing with, and essentially handled everything. I got a letter a few weeks ago saying that we had been released from the contract and owed no more money. I can't describe how relieved we were, and everyone at Attorney Finn's law firm were very understanding.

Mr. Finn and his staff are great at what they do. Him and his staff got me out of a Timeshare that wasn't beneficial for me or my family. I also used his service to look over real estate documents and get funds returned. I would recommend this firm any day.

We were dreading the inevitable confrontation with our time share company but after we heard about Mr. Finn's success with other clients in the same situation we were in, we asked his office for help.
We were prepared for a very long wait for a resolution, just given the legal nature of our situation and that we were dealing with a lawyer's office which could only add to the long time line.
Surprise to us! Everything was done and over inside of 1 year! Actually, it was 7-8 months! Mr. Finn's office stayed in touch with us on a regular basis. They were always available to take our calls and answer questions. We experienced only professional and courteous treatment.
We would highly recommend Mr. Finn to our friends and even, yes, our enemies. They deserve the best, too.

My wife and I contacted Finn Law group because while we were on vacation we were misled into signing a contract with a vacation club. After arguing with the club several times for several weeks, we were about to give up. We searched online and found the Finn Law group and with the first call with them, they were on our side and able to give us hope again. All the associates at Finn Law were very helpful and extremely nice. They were able to get us out of our contract within a short time. Thank you so much for all the hard work!

Handled every aspect of relieving me of my timeshare obligations. The corporate timeshare owners were unresponsive to my calls and letters for months. Michael and Joel expedited the process and now, I am free and clear for any further payments and contrac obligations. I would highly recommend both Michael and Joel of Finn Law.

Finn Law Group was contacted in order to get my husband and I out of a bad contract with a shady resort. We had been desperate to find someone who could help us and take our side in the fight, and Finn Law Group assured us from the start that it was possible to get out of the contract we had gotten into. They weren't able to get us a refund for teh deposit we put down, but at least we were out of the contract that would have tied us up financially for years and years.

Words could not express how THANKFUL I am to Michael D. Finn and his group of professionals for helping me and my daughter out of this timeshare scam. I was taken my this industry of timeshares and was having problems with keeping up. My life changed drastically and I tried dealing with the company but they did nothing to help. I tried other companies that say they could help but it was an other risk because they wanted a lot of money to start the process and see if it was possible to get out of my timeshare. One day I was looking up information and found Mr. Finn's Group, I was skeptic but I got to speak with Michael Finn, a great experience...I felt confident and took the risk. I will never be able to put in words how relieved and happy I am. Just this month I made my last payment to his office and they were worth every penny. I got out of my nightmare. In a matter of weeks my case was solved. I won't say your case will be cleared as soon but I know I had a group of professionals working for me and sure you will too. To all the staff at Mr. Finn's office...Thank you from the bottom of my heart...I wish every situation could be fixed by just hiring your services. I even got a payment plan...so don't hesitate if you have a real estate problem, they'll be honest and tell you all the possibilities depending on your case. Happy Holiday's!

From the Case Manager all the way up to Mr. Finn himself, I felt that I was in the best hands possible for my timeshare nightmare-and I was! My case was resolved within two months of hiring this firm. No wonder they were the first ones listed online after I googled timeshare attorneys. They were worth every penny. Let there be no doubt in your mind after reading these reviews that these people are the ones to hire. Their capability, personability and efficiency are first rate. While being tied up in legal matters isn't ever pleasant Finn Law Group is who I want fighting for me should I ever need them again in the future.

I just want to take the time to say thank you to Finn Law Group for helping me to get out of my timeshare....your team was very professional, responsive, effective, quick , courteous and understanding. Without Finn Law Group I don’t think I would have ever gotten out of the timeshare which was quickly becoming a financial burden for me and my family....again I must say THANK YOU and I will be sure to spread the great news to others who are in similar position and looking for someone to truly help them and not scammers.

I reached out to the Finn Law Group regarding a Timeshare Contract Rescission. The Timeshare company refused my claim, even though I submitted it in the allotted amount of time.

My wife and I purchased two timeshares (one from resale other from timeshare company) but my wife passed few months after purchase. I called property to avail them of change in income and needed their help to help to resale them, but they were rude and unprofessional and said I need to take care of my problem myself. I said I can't afford the payments and taxes and maintenance fees, and what would happen if I got behind. They threaten to take drastic measures. That's when I contacted Finn Law Group. Afterwards, they tried to call willing to negotiate and I told them to talk to my lawyer. That was a big relief off my shoulders. no more threats, no more worries.

After having multiple issues with our timeshare, we were to the point of returning or letting it go back to the original owners. Upon hiring the Finn Law Group in February they guided us step by step until this July we are no longer trapped into owning the time share. The firm was always informative and helpful either via the internet or phone, our questions were always answered. The case workers kept us up to date upon the progress of our return of our timeshare.

I am a licensed attorney in the State of Florida and I am here to tell you that even lawyers can be scammed. I was a victim! Some of the biggest scams in our nation are taking place in the timeshare industry as consumers seek affordable ways to provide enjoyment for their families. If you are a victim, or if you are thinking of purchasing a time share, call the offices of Michael Finn immediately. Michael Finn of the Finn Law Group and his associates specialize in this area of law. They are highly skilled, competent professionals, and they are accessible to you no matter where you are located. After several years of failed attempts to negotiate a successful resolution with one of the timeshare giants, I turned to Michael Finn and his team. Within one month, this matter was successfully resolved and I am free from the dangerous trap into which I was lured. Please, I am urging you to stay away from the timeshares. They prey on your dreams and they will destroy you!

My husband and I got into a time share that when we got home and had to time to really sit down and read the contract we found that the 3 things that got us to purcahse were not true. I found the Finn Law Group on line contacted them and they were so knowledgable and just very comforting. I had no idea what to do and they guided me every step of the way. I was able to stop the contract before I needed them to step in because of what they told me to do.. They gave me back my retainer and even made sure that the last emial I got from the company with my cancelation was correct. They were great is all I can say. Thank you..

I would recommend the Finn Law Group to anyone involved in the timeshare monstrosity game. I searched many sites and companies who claimed to have the expertise to help me get out of timeshare that was about to drain me financially. I spoke with Mr. Finns people for 6 months off and on. They did not pressure me only gave me good info to consider my next move. I finally decided to ask them to represent me and get me out of the timeshare deed. I had a settlement offer less than 2 months. I make this recommendation based on personal research. I would tell people an attorney driven company is the best way to go. Mr. Finn's expertise speaks for itself. They didnâ€™t give me the hard liners sales pitch or scare tactics. Just honest legal work that produced results.

The Finn Law Group under Michael's guidance and the hard work of his staff make the process of getting out of a timeshare effortless. No one in this field compares or makes the process work in a professional and incredible expeditious timeframe. In less than 6 weeks after completing some simply forms and talking with Michael & staff members we were out of a $95,000.00 lifetime timeshare financial burden. It was like we had won the lotto and in a way we did! There is no pressure, no nonsense, just a professional law firm that knows their business & gets the job done. If you have a question they are always there to respond. I spoke to several other companies and all they wanted was your money and a lot of it. The Finn Law Group is a set fee and if you need special consideration in paying them they will work with you & again with no pressure. They understand things happen, sickness, etc. and make it easy to adjust your payment schedule if you have a legitimate reason.
Keep this is mind since it is pure math & common sense; when they ask for say $6000.00 to be paid over time to get out of say $100,000.00, donâ€™t be afraid to move forward! Think of the bottom line savings. In this case $94,000.00!
If you have been caught in the timeshare money forever bear trap, I strongly suggest you call them TODAY! When you get the call from your Case Manager advising you are out of the contract, your credit report has not been altered at all, I guarantee you will jump up & down with joy as my wife and I did!
Thanks to Michael and his excellent staff! We will recommend you the next time I have the opportunity when I see someone walking around with a timeshare ball & chain around their waist close to their wallet! They to will have their chain cut and feel relief that will bring joy to their financial world!

I searched for a lawyer who handles time share release so I would not have a bad credit rating by just not paying anymore. I found Michael Finn on the Internet and I called the number. Immediately Tammy got in touch with me and I was extremely skeptical to say the least especially since I live in PA and they were in another state. I would not send any money without something in writing which I received and they worked with me as far as payments went. Tammy kept in touch with me constantly and surprise surprise they were able to get me out of my timeshare contract in about 3 months. All the people I worked with were extremely helpful and I was always able to reach them by phone and email. All the documentation that was needed was sent in a timely manner. I would RECOMMEND Mr. Finn, Tammy and all his associates to anyone who is looking for a knowledgeable, competent law office to help you out of your timeshare woes.

I'd like to share a story about my great experience with Eric and Michael D. Finn of the Finn Law Group. I work in the construction industry as a sole proprietor. I recently had a non-paying customer and the customer owed a substantial amount. I did not know where to turn as the customer refused to pay and made a number of false claims against my workmanship in an effort to avoid payment. Eric took my information and authored a very professional letter on my behalf, which prompted action on their part. The action would not have been possible had I decided to do it on my own. Eric and Mike are very knowledgeable professionals and I am so grateful to have asked for their help through a very difficult time. In addition to his professionalism and knowledge of the legal system, Eric was also very sensitive to my situation and treated me as more than just a client, as he was very empathetic and understanding. I would highly recommend the Michael D. Finn Law Group to anyone looking for legal advice or services.
