Huron Law Group Debt Settlement Scam Bingham Farms Michigan

I believe the Huron Law Group to be deceptive in their customer recruiting practices. They have been "grooming" my elderly father for several weeks now to sign on with their "debt settlement" program. My Dad is a 90-year-old Army veteran who has had some health issues recently; and he's concerned about some lingering credit card debt that he has. They have managed to impress him with the information they already had about his debt level during their initial calling phase. They are using women to make these calls. My Dad is susceptible to a "warm and friendly" female voice.
This Huron Law group has offered him a program, allegedly, that will intervene for him with his creditors. I looked up this "group" online and found a "store-front" website; present, but not very informative with specifics.
Additionally, I have listened to some of the voicemail messages they have left, and it sounds as if the woman/women are calling from some call center; there are lots of other voices in the background that can be heard seemingly making sales pitches.
I've talked with my Dad about this group and explained that most non-profit debt management folks don't require a large sum of money (around $500) to get started, and they don't require you to give them power-of-attorney, limited or otherwise, to conduct business on your behalf. This group/agency appears to be for-profit, and they have done this. Furthermore, even though they may debit the money from your checking/savings account, they do not guarantee that they will settle the debt with your creditors. It appears they expect the client to continue paying; all the while they're taking money from your account for fees.
I DETEST THERE TARGETING OF SENIORS/ELDERLY for their sales pitches. I find it highly suspicious that the callers use cell phones with numbers that show up as 'unknown' on the caller ID.
If you have a Senior parent who has been contacted by this group, PLEASE don't let them sign on with these folks.
