I responded to a letter I received in the mail offering assitance to save my home. At first the staff seemed really involved and helpful until days went by and it’s two days until the suppose sale date of my home and after numerous call I still haven’t heard from anyone. I tried getting in touch with the man who was in charge of taking my money, John Stepp but he said it was out of his hands, it was his birthday, and started yelling all types of gibberish into my ear over the phone. When I finally got in contact with Michael Lanier he seemed more amused about the situation than apologetic, saying Stepp must have been inebriated from partying too hard. I was told I was getting a refund after they found out I contacted the BBB, we already discussed we wanted to stop working with them and Mr.Lanier agreed to wire back atleast 1000.00 dollars out of the 1300.00 I had given him total and it’d be in our account come morning. We texted him the account number, our name, and the banks name and he texted back “okay”. I sent them all I had some of which I borrowed. I was with my son at his doctors appointment when the tables turned and Michael Lanir said he had good news, got the judge to stop the sale by some sudden miracle, and sent a sort of evidential file through my email which wasn’t even opening all after our previous conversation just moments before when he already said things weren’t looking good for us. At this point I was far beyond fed up with these people and wondered if he had done anything the whole time at all. He got a major attitude after we started asking simple questions such as what was the judges name and what happened to getting our money back, we could have atleast looked for a place to rent. He was unable to answer any of my questions, said it wasn’t in front of him, excuse after excuse and got extremely rude and nasty saying that we were being “jerks”, “putting on a charade”, and should be thanking him for “the work he did”. He now insists on keeping any money for whatever he allegedly accomplished between the time we agreed on a refund to him verbally attacking and insulting us on the phone. I put my faith in this man, he and his staff are very unprofessional and heartless. Way to kick someone when they’re down. I deeply regret not doing my research first and hope no one else falls for this ploy. I’ve read countless negative reviews about this guy. What they’re doing is not right ethically and I doubt legally either. Not only have I failed in saving my house but I let myself get taken for a fool and advantage of when I was already in a weak spot. I am currently in even worse financial conditon now because of all this then I was before getting involved with Mr. Michael Winston Lanier and his Lighthouse Law Group.
