Legal Counsel for Timeshare Owners
Champaign bottles, streamers, cheers, and other couples celebrating their timeshare purchase. Some or all of these elements may have been part of your timeshare purchase experience. It was exciting!
Until reality set in.
When considering the topic for our inaugural blog post, we had plenty of ideas. And that’s because we speak with dozens of clients every week, each with their own questions:
- What are the legal consequences of “walking away” from my timeshare?
- What is my timeshare worth?
- What legal methods can I use to get out of my unwanted timeshare?
- How should I transfer my property?
The list goes on, and we’ll work through many of them here on this blog. But as an initial matter for this post, you’re here because you’re looking for competent and efficient legal services at a reasonable rate.
Of course, there are many options in this information age. You have advocacy groups, Google, and a myriad of websites and discussion boards all offering their services and advice. So why hire a timeshare attorney? You’ve heard the old adage – you get what you pay for. With that in mind, below are the main reasons to retain a timeshare attorney.
Located in Orlando, Florida, Robertson Law Associates, P.A. operates in the timeshare capital of the world. We have a combined 20 years of experience in the timeshare industry working with all major timeshare resorts. Our attorneys are licensed to practice law in five states and have experience in contracts, negotiation, litigation, and probate. Perhaps most importantly, we have researched and negotiated with major players in the timeshare market, saving you time and money. Other forms of assistance simply cannot provide you the benefit of legal counsel and advocacy when dealing with timeshare resorts.
Many of our clients, prior to hiring us, have lost money after hiring others to assist with their timeshare properties. When you hire Robertson Law Associates, you enter an attorney-client relationship. This means that we are required to provide competent legal services. We outline our services in a signed engagement letter so you have a clear understanding of what we are hired to do. If you have any questions, we are there to assist you.
Your ability to perform a thorough back-ground check is a unique aspect of hiring an attorney. Each of us here are registered with our respective state bar associations. You can look us up, ensure that we are attorneys in good standing, and verify our information. The practice of law is a highly regulated field and all of our timeshare lawyers were required to attend accredited law schools, go through the state’s character and fitness evaluation, and successfully pass the bar exam. Quite honestly, it’s an exhausting process. But it’s done to protect the profession, which is really to protect you.
The Florida Rules of Professional Conduct require that an attorney communicate with the client. When you hire an attorney, you can expect that your calls will be returned, you will receive updates on the status of your matter, and we will consult with you before making major decisions. We also have a duty to exercise independent professional judgment and render candid advice. All of this is to give you peace of mind.
So back to that celebration you experienced when you purchased your timeshare… we’re nothing like that. But wouldn’t it have been valuable to have had an unbiased attorney sitting by you during that presentation and when you signed? Well, that moment is gone, but you owe it to yourself to have legal representation this time to protect you and your family. If not Robertson Law Associates, please be sure to retain a timeshare attorney that can represent you with these important decisions regarding your timeshare or vacation ownership.
