Highly Recommend
Made a choice I immediately regretted while in Las Vegas. Went through the BBB and saw the high ratings that the O’Grady Law Group had. Called them first thing the next morning. My call was returned right away by Len Julian who was very understanding and very friendly, he answered all my questions and handled everything very professionally and everything was handled over the phone. I am usually very on top of everything and while going through this i was a very nervous basket case. Mr. Julian and Mr. O’Grady both handled my situation with the Time Share very quickly and sent certified letters out the same day I spoke to them and made me feel at ease that they were on it. A week later I was free from the contract! I am so glad I picked this law firm and would recommend them to anyone who needs to get out from under a time share! They are wonderful!!! Thank you so much!!!

Help to Rescind a Timeshare Contract
My wife and I needed some help regarding understanding the details in timeshare contract. O'Grady Law was prompt, knowledgeable, and gracious enough to take time to call me and answer my questions. Hopefully our issues have been resolved but we will surely hire them without hesitation for representation in the future if I need it.

Amazing Law Firm and a one of a kind Lawyer
My husband wanted to sell his house in Las Vegas, and it was a sticking situation with a family member. Although the house was owned by my husband, he needed to get an eviction to get this immediate family member out. The family member was less than eager to move and it became somewhat volatile. The members of this firm from the first call to the end were always available, before we hired the attorney, an assistant took our calls repeatedly making us feel important and that our case mattered. That's why we hired Mr. O'Grady. So, with all the great people working in this law firm, we had a resolution within a short time, they assisted us in finding realtors who could help after and just made our lives easier as we reside outside of Nevada. This is a firm I would recommend to anyone in pickle.

Extremely helpful and honest!
After I purchased a Timeshare in Las Vegas, I quickly regretted my decision and sent in my letter of cancellation within the 5-day "cooling period" without using certified mail. After the 5-days had passed, I realized my mistake (not using certified mail) and attempted to contact the resort to inquire about it. They stated they had not received my letter. Then, I began to prepare myself to take action if need be. O'Grady Law Group had excellent reviews and a FREE consultation. Once in contact with them, they were very polite and honest. They had informed me of all my options, what could happen, how they plan to proceed (they did an amazing job explaining by telling me how they were going to make sure this and that wouldn't be affected and many other small various details I paid no thought to). They were very honest, polite, and understanding of the whole situation. Very quick to get back to me about updates or just small responses in general (which is extremely generous because it relieved my stress/anxiety quite significantly).

Excellent service
"I went on a timeshare presentation and was talked into buying. When I arrived home, I read through all the paperwork and determined that what was represented to me by the salesperson was not accurate. It had only been two days and I live in the city where I attended the presentation however the cancellation had to be mailed. They would not allow me to show up in person to cancel which I found unusual. The contract clearly stated that I had 5 days to cancel and the instructions were in the package they gave me. I was going to do it on my own, but I wanted to ensure that it was handled by someone who knew what they were doing. I did not want to get stuck in a contract because of an error. I called William O’Grady and as it was time sensitive he agreed to see me that day. He met with me and knew exactly what to do. In a couple of weeks, the money I used for my down payment was credited to my card and he called to tell me the contract was cancelled. It was worth the cost to put my mind at ease and the process went very smooth. If you need a lawyer that understands timeshare contracts call Mr. O’Grady. He did not even need to look through my contract to find the cancellation information .

Excellent Service for a Timeshare Issue (Attorney Review)
I found Mr. O'Grady based on his great online reviews throughout the web. I'm attorney myself, and I was looking for an attorney to assist my sister who purchased a timeshare that she was extremely unhappy with. Mr. O'Grady was able to get a full refund for my sister. Mr. O'Grady provided very quick responses to all of my emails and phone calls, which is greatly appreciated. I highly recommend Mr. O'Grady.

5 star company
My husband and I purchased a time share and were completely unsatisfied with it. We found this company and decided to go through with them in trying to get out of the timeshare. Which I'm so happy we did. They were able to get all of our money back and took so much time speaking with me and my husband. They did an amazing job and I would recommend them to anyone.

Excellent Consumer Protection Attorney
Mr. O'Grady provided excellent legal counsel and results for a family friend stuck in an unwanted timeshare. He was highly knowledgeable of the law and procedure, and resolved the matter efficiently.

When all else failed, O'Grady Law Group made it happen!
While on a trip to Las Vegas, I ended up using one of my friend's timeshares. Lo and behold, I somehow walked out of there with my very own timeshare. That was over 4 years ago and I haven't used nor had any desire to use it since the initial purchase. After several unsuccessful attempts to sell or cancel my contract, I turned to O'Grady Law Group for help. I sent them a copy of my contract to review at no cost and we scheduled a consultation to discuss my options. During the the initial consultation, they took the time to explain exactly how they were going to handle my particular case and what I could expect during the process. By the time I walked out of the meeting, I was very excited to have them working for me. They took complete control of the situation, including all communications with the timeshare company, and had my timeshare contract cancelled within 6 months. Knowing that they have the experience, credentials, and knowledge to handle my timeshare contract cancellation gave me such peace of mind and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for assistance with timeshare contract cancellation.

Gratitude
A friend was given a Christmas gift of 2 nights at a Timeshare Resort. The next morning she was woken up and told she needed to attend a meeting, which she did. At this meeting she identified herself as a woman religious, a Catholic Nun, and informed them she received a small stipend for her Church Ministry. She was pressured to sign up for a Timeshare. She was told it was for a small monthly fee. Again she stated she received a small monthly stipend for her Church Ministry. Finally, after much pressure she signed a contract. In the summer of the following year she went on a mission trip to another state at was treated to 5 days at this same Timeshare Resort to minister in a soup kitchen to feed the hungry. Again she was woken up early for a mandatory meeting. Again she was pressured to upgrade her Timeshare and purchase a more ownership. Again she identified herself as a woman religious, a Catholic Nun ministering in the Catholic Church receiving a small monthly stipend. Again she signed this second contract. This time they opened a Timeshare Credit Card where payments would be deducted monthly at a very high interest rate. English is not her first language and therefore she did not understand the ramifications. She shared all this with me and we called the Timeshare Resort to attempt to cancel the contract, which was not possible. We called 2 Real Estate Brokers who sell Timeshares and received information as to possibly selling it. I then called a Real Estate Broker friend who researched both agencies and said the BBB showed they were not reliable. My nephew, a lawyer, visited me and I shared with him all the information and gave him copies of the paper work concerning this Timeshare. My nephew recommended the O’Grady Law Firm. I contacted them and shared Sister’ situation and they were most helpful. She was released from the Timeshare Contract and received a check for payments to this Timeshare Resort. Truly this was the grace and guidance of God leading us to the O’Grady Law Firm. Both Sister and I were praying to God that this law firm would produce a miracle and through God’s graces it happened; she was released from the contract and received a check for all her payments. Needless to say we are both most grateful to God and for the O’Grady Law Firm. I highly recommend the O’Grady Law Firm, they are very professional and reliable. May God’s Blessing be with them as they assist their clients.

O'Grady
O'Grady is one in a million. Although, I was refered to this group of wonderful layers, I was never in doubt after reading their profile online of what the result would be. Guess what, my assumptions were 100% correct. They did an exceptional job handling my case in just a few months for a case that should have lasted years. Thanks to O'Grady lawyers I can now smile again after going through some miserable years of being stuck in a horrible situation. Thanks to O'Grady for how you handled my case.

Answer to our prayers
We are a retired couple. We were a little skeptical about "A Lawyer" when other companies could not help us. William and Len took on our case with a guarantee that they would get us what we wanted. I am so thankful they came our way because I can sleep better and not be under so much stress. I encourage anyone that has a legal problem to contact these great friends for help. It won't take long until they become your friends as well.

They got me out of my Timeshare when others said it was impossible!
We were referred to the O'Grady Law Group from a third party to help out with some legal matters with a Timeshare. We were a bit skeptical as we had been turned down by other law groups for our issue. I am so glad we gave William and Len a chance to work on our case. They were both very nice to speak with and highly professional. They went over our case in depth and kept us up to date on our progress through the entire process! The O'Grady Law Group took in our case, which we thought was a lost cause, and had it resolved quickly! Thank you so much! - Wendy & Tim from CA!
