Michigan Payday Loan Attorney

Payday loan companies are known to employ unethical tactics when it comes to the collection of outstanding debts. These tactics often go far beyond threatening or violent phone calls. Some payday lending collectors will deceitfully say that they are calling on behalf of the court and will threaten consumers with arrest. Others will go as far as threatening arrest, prosecution or jail time unless the debt is not paid. This special breed of debt collectors will make it seem as if they have the power to do this through court staff and orders; however, none of this is ever true. If you have taken out a loan from a payday lending company and have been a victim of these extreme tactics, we may be able to help.

Lyngklip & Associates Consumer Law Group, PLC has been a long time coming. I have been dealing with identity theft from multiple sources for at least three decades. I couldn't find a lawyer that would even listen to me or even would know how to approach the subject matter of identity theft and how to help someone clear their name. I never gave up and found Lyngklip & Associates Consumer Law Group, PLC from another lawyer who couldn't help me. Ever since we have been fixing my background reports and helping me clear my name. Great client service and very helpful.

Ian and his team were very personable and I felt like they were on my side the entire time. I was dealing with a consumer issue and they were available to answer any questions that I had whenever I called. The end result was fair and exactly what I expected. I really liked how they took care of their business. If you’re in the right, they’re going to make sure that the truth prevails and they won’t leave you there feeling like a stranger.

Michigan Consumer Law helped me when I was having issues with the purchase of a vehicle. What happened to me was very unsettling. However, when I met with Ian and his team, they explained everything to me in layman’s terms and my anxiety was relieved knowing that I wasn’t going to be completely ripped off. I received a settlement and was happy with the end result. I am now working with Michigan Consumer Law on another case of mine, and would definitely recommend them to anyone.
