The October 6th Meeting at the Baronette Renaissance Hotel in Novi was well attended. Individuals who have experienced unjustified overpayment and penalty assessments by the UIA or who have experienced garnishments and tax refunds intercepts described their situations to those in attendance and were able to secure advise from the team of attorneys assembled to assist those who requested help. This meeting was helpful and additional meetings will be scheduled as the case progresses. Watch this website for Notice of Meetings.
