WOW
There is nothing I can say that hasn’t already been said through the multiple reviews posted here, but what I will say is if your thinking about representation think no further. It would be a mistake, I never knew it could be so easy and at a blink of an eye I had my peace of mind back. Thank you Michael and team you are all amazing.

Greetings, I received Michael advertisement letter in the mail to assist me in my legal issues along with countless other advertisement mails. I open up the letter and read the content and decide to give him a call. I discuss my legal situation with Michael and he gave me an educated on my legal issues, then he gave me a breakdown on his services. After he evaluate of my situation he came to the conclusion that he’s service is not the best option for my situation and he referred me to a different legal attorney that will bring value to me. I took his advice and reached out to his reference . Unfortunately I did not hire Michael and his team but he’s guidance was appreciated and I would recommend everyone with financial legal issues to give him a call for a consultation for direction and guidance. He is very straightforward and he will not pressure you to make a decision on the spot. He is truly here for the community and we need more like him. I have him lock in my contacts for financial legal services for my friend and family. Thank you, MICHEAL for putting the community first.

Mr. Metzner, and his associate handled my case with such effientness, and such ease, you will get the feeling that you are the most important person they are dealing with. My case has been causing me grief for a few years, and they resolved it with such efficiency, that I can hardly believe it is resolved. I will recommend his firmwhen ever the occasion arise. A happy client Dave

He gets it done!
I was very skeptical because I’ve never been in this predicament before. AL was very honest with me. I’m pretty thorough, even with his analogies of which way the list can go for me. Michael reached out to me and pretty much said the same thing but I’m a pessimist so I wasn’t sure but as I told them if it didn’t work out in my favor I wouldn’t hold it against them. With his skills didn’t worked out for me and I very much appreciate him and his team. I really do recommend them. Thank you guys again.

Stressful event made easier with their help!
Received what I thought was spam letter notifying me of a lawsuit against me. I didn't recognize the plaintiff so II almost ignored it, but decided to search the county's public records and sure enough found that there was indeed a lawsuit against me had been filed. I immediately called Michael Metzner's office and spoke to Al which got my file and went over all the details. He was quite knowledgeable and went through the process with me without making me feel pressured. That is why I decided to hire them. He took my information and then got Michael on the phone with me to review my case. This was reassuring and comforting. It took a few months to have case resolved, but I was updated periodically as needed. One of those calls entailed settlement amounts and offers along with worse case scenarios which was good information to have. Communication throughout process was great and welcoming. The outcome of case was better than expected and I am ecstatic with the results. Thank you guys!!

Thankful that I found this law firm.
I am so thankful that I found this law firm. I had a serious issue with LVNV funding. They purchased my debt and sued me. I’m so happy that I found Micheal because he was able to resolve this case, quickly. Now, I can start repairing my credit and move past this. Thank you so much.

Helpful, professional and ethical
I had a consultation with Mr. Metzner's staff member, Al. He spent 45 minutes with me without the expectation of becoming a client. Is it pretty clear that they care about treating people kindly and with respect. Al was very helpful, and they seem to have a high ethical standard. I would definitely recommend this firm.

Exceptional work!
I hired Michael after receiving information about his law firm in the mail. I was very impressed with Michael's drive to settle my case quickly and reasonably while maintaining great communication along the way. If I ever find myself in a similar situation I would not hesitate to utilize his services again and I definitely would recommend his services to a friend or family member. Thank you Michael for the hard work.

On Your Side!
I had an unfair judgement against me and my company. I returned a defective truck to a leasing company, and even though the re sale amount and my payments gave them 90% of the original price of the Truck they still sued me for the remainder of the balance of the original terms. They weren't willing to accept my settlement offer. I engaged the services of Attorney Michael Metner and he was able to get me a fair settlement. (Significantly lower). Every conversation and interaction I had with Michael and his office, was very reassuring. I was always updated on the status of the case and felt like I had a strong competent advocate on my side. My case is settled and I can move on from this unpleasant experience. I hope I do not need an attorney again for any similar matter, but if I do, I will sure call Michael!

Sound Advice & Empathy
I was lost in the world of debt legalities with a major bank doing the most repugnant things to make my life harder. Al gave me sound advice to help me get my situation in order, because it turns out that I did not need to hire an attorney to address my problem. Honesty is not what law firms are known for, but this one is a rare example of integrity in action. Highly recommend you give them the opportunity to hear your story, because you will come away with great advice, even if you don't end up working with them...

Truly a lifesaver!
About a year ago our company was served with a lawsuit from American Express regarding an unpaid debt on two account. As with many businesses, COVID wreaked havoc on our financial health causing us to get behind. Mr. Metzner and Mr. Mays were very understanding and worked with us so we could make payment to retain their services. Once we went into negotiations with AMEX, they were in constant communication with us as to what the status of our case was. They were able to get us a settlement that we could afford before we went to mediation, and now our business can continue to operate. I really do not know where we would be if it was not for their hard work and diligence. God forbid we are ever in this situation again, but if we ever are, my first call will be to Mr. Metzner and his team.
