Is Helbing Law Group a Complete Scam?

Written by Steve Rhode

Question:

Dear Steve,

Questioning a company as to being legit?

Do you have any knowledge of Helbing Law Group LLC as to whether they are a legit company with good honest practices or are they a complete scam of a company?

Paul

Answer:

Dear Paul,

These kinds of questions are nearly impossible. Since I have no idea what you may consider a scam or legit, there is no way I can answer your question.

I’ve written these free guides to help people research companies and come to their own conclusion.

  2. 10 Must Do Steps to Find the Best Credit Counseling or Debt Settlement Company for You
  3. How to Check Out a Business or Company to Avoid Getting Scammed or Ripped Off

Here Are Some Observations

Using the guides above I took a quick look and here are some of the things I found in a couple of minutes.

The website HelbingLawGroup.com was created on 8-29-2017 according to DomainToos.com. The site also does not appear to say what the physical address of the firm is.

Keep in mind if you are hiring an attorney to assist you then the attorney must be licensed to practice law in the state you live in. I can’t easily tell what state this company is registered to do business in or who the attorneys are behind the company if any. That would be a great question to ask your contact there.

It seems a bit odd since the failure to provide information on the attorney or disclaimers about attorney advertising would not meet the requirements of some state bar associations.

The news page on the website looks like the last news posted was 8-3-2017. Seems like the site has been left unattended.

I did discover the telephone number used on the website, 800-413-5011, is also used or was used by a company named Consumer Law Relief. – Source

The BBB says the owner of Consumer Law Relief is an Erik Helbing and this website, Compas Role Legal Group says an Erik Helbing “is the founding principal of Helbing Law Group, LLC, a practice specializing exclusively in consumer rights, which includes foreclosure defense, credit collection defense, and bankruptcy.” – Source

I don’t know what all these individual facts will mean to you but at least it’s a start in your research. Post a comment below and let me know what conclusion you reach.

  • Yes this is a scam they sent me a notice in the mail so I thought was legit signed a contract but haven’t taken any money but have all my information Dan Lancaster is the guy that was my rep he’s in Boca Raton Fl
    After spending many hrs on internet looking up phone# and addresses I come up empty I just called Dan back put me through the law law firm talked to a Dave and cancelled my contract he said no problem I just tried calling back and get busy signal

  • I entered a contract with Helbring Law Group, but every time I talk to someone, about something, I’m talking to someone in Florida. When I finally got a chance to take to one of the so called Lawyers. I asked about how his firm could represent me in Indiana from Texas?He gave me some song and dance about how he was licensed to represent in a lot of states. the flags should have been flying at that point. well they shut down my credit reporting accounts. nage me for my copies of credit card statements (3) accounts which I e-mailed twice to them and mailed physically too thier Texas Law Office address. So if they haven gotten it by now they are not working out of that office in Texas. But working out of a call house in Florida in I believe in Orlando. Because when I talked to the Lawyer there was the sound of a call house in the background.
