Timeshare Cancellation Attorney, Mitchell Reed Sussman, sues Playa Grande Resort

PALM SPRINGS, Calif., /PRNewswire/ -- Timeshare Cancellation Attorney, Mitchell Reed Sussman, sues Playa Grande Resort

Attorney Mitchell Reed Sussman has disrupted the Time Share Industry to such a degree that Time Share developers around the world consider him public enemy number 1.

Timeshare exit

"Ten years ago, when I began helping Time Share owners rid themselves of lifetime maintenance fees and other ridiculous obligations, a lawyer-friend of mine asked if I wasn't afraid of waking up one morning to find a bomb in my car," Sussman said.

Unenforceable, onerous contracts

Over the years, Sussman has obtained thousands of releases for timeshare owners nation-wide, in many cases, by successfully suing the timeshare corporations for unlawful practices and unenforceable, onerous contracts.

He has upended a trillion-dollar industry known for high-pressure sales tactics and fine print contracts seeking to absolve the timeshare for any "untruthful statements" made by a salesperson during the timeshare 'presentation'.

Recently, one timeshare decided to fight dirty when the Playa Grande Resort, in an effort to keep their owner in the fold, sent a defamatory letter to William and Ursula White, clients of Sussman who had previously purchased a timeshare membership from Playa Grande.

The letter contained false and outrageous accusations.

"Anyone can look it up and see that I have been a member of the California bar in good standing for over 42 years am beloved by my clients and have an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau,"

Sussman said regarding what he describes as a coward's approach to his efforts to free his clients from unwanted timeshares.

The case filed by the law office of Mitchell Reed Sussman & Associates by lead attorney Leslie Benjamin is Sussman v. Playa Grande, Superior Court of California, County of Riverside Superior Court, case no. PSC 1903477

The lawsuit seeks damages in excess of one million dollars along with an injunction.

If you are in need of a timeshare cancellation attorney, it can be a daunting task to know where to start. Finding the right attorney for your specific needs requires some research and consideration. Here are some steps you can take to find a reliable timeshare cancellation attorney.

Understand the specialization

Not all lawyers practice the same area of law. Timeshare law requires expertise in consumer protection law, breach of contract, and civil litigation. Therefore, it is crucial to look for attorneys who specialize in these areas.

Seek referrals

You can search for attorneys based on location and keywords relevant to your case, such as "timeshare cancellation attorney" or "consumer law attorney."

Consider qualifications and track record

When researching potential attorneys, consider their qualifications and track record. Look for peer-reviewed ratings on sites like, which offer insights into the professional reputation of attorneys. Ratings such as AV (highest), BV, or similar indications can help assure you of their expertise and competence.

Schedule consultations

Once you have narrowed down your options, schedule consultations with the attorneys you are considering. During these meetings, discuss your specific case and concerns. This will help you gauge their understanding of timeshare law and their ability to handle your case effectively.

Evaluate communication and rapport

Pay attention to the attorney's communication style and your comfort level with them. A good attorney should be attentive, responsive, and able to explain legal matters in a clear and understandable manner. Building a good rapport will ensure effective communication throughout your case.
