It is our pleasure to recommend attorney Michael Sices to you.
Michael Sices literally saved and restored us from the certain disaster of having our home taken from us. Wells Fargo had claimed we had not made one (a single “missing”) payment to them. This simply was not true. We had in fact paid Wells Fargo the correct amount and often overpaid a bit, on time, and in the same manner as we always had for over six years. No matter how many times we proved to them that we had indeed made the payment in question they continued to insist we had not. Wells Fargo sent us a certified letter indicating they intended to foreclose on our home. This meant if we did not meet the demands of their letter we would have been forcibly removed from our home and they would have had the right to take everything inside to “cure the debt.” Eventually, we ended up having to make what amounted to more than a double payment due to false late charges in a single month. Wells Fargo’s actions damaged our credit rating, lines of credit were closed, and the cost of insurance went up substantially as credit reports are used in part to establish premiums. Everything became more expensive and often a cash transaction was an only option. Every phone call made was auto-routed to Wells Fargo’s collection department. The collection calls were unrelenting. Even after we had been wrongly forced to make a double payment, including late fees Wells Fargo did not apply the payment as they should have. Instead, they held several months of payments in “suspense” without application as they marched forward with foreclosure intent.
It was more than a torturous living hell. Besides the financial devastation, the stress and anguish of the situation took a tremendous, unbearable toll on nearly every aspect of our lives.
Michael Sices was introduced to us by way of recommendation. Michael Sices is a white hat lawyer and a Knight in shining armor! Michael Sices is expertly knowledgeable and experienced in his craft and the practice of contract law, consumer law, and litigating these laws for his clients benefit. Michael Sices was able to artfully manage and navigate through thousands of pages of legal documents Wells Fargo’s slimy “win by any means and at any cost” lawyers had buried us in. He skillfully and quickly found “smoking guns” supporting the truth of our desperate situation. Like a knight in shining armor he wielded his legal art like a double-edged broad sword and brought the evil dragon to its knees leaving it gasping for breath.
Michael Sices is a man of complete integrity, an experienced attorney, wise, compassionate, and a kind counselor you definitely want on your side! Michael Sices takes the injustice done to you extremely personally, as if it had been done to him or his. Michael Sices will mount his trusty white steed, bravely, wisely, quickly knowing his opponents legal weaknesses and rides off to claim justice for you!
Michael Sices took on this case when other less virtuous lawyers shied and suggested we just claim bankruptcy. Either they were too afraid or too lazy to take on the Wells Fargo dragon and their army of lawyers.
Not Michael Sices; he was angry at what had been done to us; he was excited for the legal battle, determined, and confident of victory.
Michael Sices took the case and he won in nothing short of a spectacular manner!
We will be eternally grateful to Michael Sices for saving our home, restoring us, and fearlessly taking on an extremely well-heeled behemoth dead set on destroying us.
Do call Michael Sices immediately to protect you and your family from the injustice befallen. Just as he did for us, trust Michael Sices to be your legal knight in shining armor bringing you your justice and restoration.

I used Michael Sices a few years ago for a bankruptcy and he made what was a very difficult and defeating time in my life much easier. The process could not have been more smooth. The fresh start, after a financially devastating divorce, was exactly what I needed. Life is much better now.

My wife and I had a company contact us saying we owed money which come to find out we didn't. I contacted Mike and he told me what needed to be done. He put my wife and I at ease and removed all the stress. He was easy to get a hold of and easy to talk to. If you need an attorney to help you through some financial tough times Mike is the attorney for you.

Mr. Sices thoroughly comprehends consumer law, banking law, and debt collection law. This fellow does not mess around when it comes to litigation and definitely knows how and when to get things done in both state and federal court in Northern and Eastern Texas. His thoughtful and engaging demeanor, his fortitude, and his calm bedside manner make him a superb choice of litigator. I will also add that he truly cares about getting the best result for his clients and genuinely cares about the correct application of the law. I have been very satisfied with his work in the past and would entrust him to handle a matter for me any day of the week.
