Finn Law Group is a law firm in Largo, FL that may be able to help with your timeshare exit. The firm has been in business since 2011 according to the BBB and has good reviews online. Let’s have a look at the website.
On the homepage we see that Finn Law Group states that it has been providing “Timeshare and consumer protection for over 45 years.” This is quite a bit longer than the 2011 business incorporation date reported by the BBB. Perhaps the BBB page is out of date or the company worked under a different brand name in the past. No big deal.
Scrolling down more and we see the lawyers of the firm clearly shown on the website, which is a good sign. Many timeshare exit companies do not display the lawyers they work with on their website, and that can be an issue because you don’t know if the company is working with lawyers or not. If a timeshare exit company is not working with lawyers, it is likely a scam.
Digging in deeper and it appears that these are all legitimate lawyers who are all licensed to practice law. Michael D. Finn, Founder of Finn Law Group, has been quoted about timeshares in several respectable publications such as Inside The Gate and others as well. All very good signs. This is a legitimate law firm in Florida. No fake lawyers here.
Heading over to the Learning Center and we see twelve pages of educational articles for timeshare owners to read. These articles are well-written and well-researched. Finn Law Group clearly knows what it’s talking about when it comes to getting out of a timeshare.
After reviewing the Finn Law Group website, it is unclear if an up-front fee is required to retain their services. We here at TimeshareExitCompanies.com only recommend working with companies that offer a no up-front fee escrow payment option to cancel your timeshare. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here.
Finn Law Group also warns timeshare owners about the importance of avoiding companies that ask for a large up-front fee to “sell” your timeshare. This is good advice because you’ll likely pay the up-front fee and your timeshare will never sell. Even though Finn Law Group recommends against paying an up-front fee, we can’t find anything saying that they do not charge an up-front fee themselves.
Not paying an up-front fee is just as important in the timeshare exit industry as it is in the timeshare resale industry. A timeshare exit company by the name of Aconsumercredit in Ormond Beach, Florida told timeshare owners it could cancel their timeshare in exchange for an up-front fee, and then went out of business. Timeshare owners paid Aconsumercredit for a timeshare cancellation service that never happened and did not get their money back.
There was also a lawyer specialized in timeshare cancellation by the name of Judson Phillips of Castle Law Group that was disbarred for providing fraudulent timeshare cancellation services. The lawyer promised timeshare owners a cancellation of their contract, but didn’t follow through on these promises and was eventually disbarred for it.
Therefore, we recommend not paying an up-front fee to ANY timeshare exit or resale company, even if it appears to be a legitimate law firm.
