Other Areas

Anti-Competitive Conduct

Federal and state antitrust laws prohibit anticompetitive behavior and unfair business practices that harm other businesses and consumers.

Examples of these unlawful, anticompetitive practices include:

  • Price Fixing – an agreement among competitors to raise, fix, or otherwise maintain the price at which their goods or services are sold.
  • Pay-for-Delay – an agreement between a brand drug manufacturer and a would-be generic competitor to delay the release of a generic version of the branded drug, depriving consumers of lower-priced generics.
  • Bid-Rigging – competitors agree in advance who will submit the winning bid during a competitive bidding process. As with price fixing, it is not necessary that all bidders participate in the conspiracy.
  • Monopolization – one or more persons or companies totally dominates an economic market.
  • Unfair Competition – an attempt to gain unfair competitive advantage through false, fraudulent, or unethical commercial conduct.
  • Market Division – an agreement between competitors not to compete within each other’s geographic territories.
  • Group Boycotts – two or more competitors agree not to do business with a specific person or company.
  • Tying – when a company makes the purchase of an item conditioned on buying a second item.

Bank Overdraft Practices

Banks are able to generate billions of dollars in revenues each year due to customer overdraft fees. In many cases, the fees are obtained by way of unfair policies. Such issues as reordering transactions, no notification of overdrafts and high price charges for overdrafts are only a small portion of what banks will do to increase revenues at the consumer expense. At Sheehan & Associates P.C., we focus on providing legal assistance to individuals affected by bank overdraft claims. Our attorneys will pursue a claim regarding banks that used methods of deception to generate excessive fees from checks and debit cards.

Protection from Bank Overdrafts

When a checking account is opened, it is the responsibility of the account holder to keep the account in good standing. Enough money should be in place to pay for checks that are written or charges to your debit card. In the past, banks would automatically provide overdraft protection without the knowledge of the account holder. Now, current laws state that if an account holder wants such protections, they have to opt in.

Overdraft protection provides automatic coverage of the purchases up to a pre-set amount. Once that amount is surpassed, a fee is charged for the service. This can be $25 to $50 for each overcharge. If you overdraft, you can end up paying hundreds of dollars in fees without even knowing.

Issues Involving Overdraft Fees

A central way in which a bank will increase overdraft fees of the consumer is to reorder transactions. Instead of a transaction being posted to the account in the order it was made that day, the bank will take the biggest check first. When you move the transactions out of order and go from highest amount to lowest, overdrafts are more likely to occur.

Take for example an individual who spent $10 on food, then $50 to pay a bill then they took out $100 from the ATM, from an account with $140 in it. If the money was spent in that order, then the overdraft would occur after the $100 charge. Which would require only one overdraft fee. However, if the transactions are rearranged, in the opposite order, then two charges would be hit with an overdraft fee.

Such changes are not going to be noticed by the consumer and the fees paid. Though, if the purchases were in the correct order, the fees would be much lower or possibly nonexistent based on the time of the transactions.

This is where we come in. Our team is happy to assist when you experience an overdraft issue with your financial institution. Our attorneys will review your case and determine if the bank treated you unfairly with the overdraft fees charged. Once we take a look at your financial records, we can create a course of action to ensure that your legal rights are served.

Banks are legally responsible to provide quality services to their clients. If you have been treated unfairly, give our office a call. We can easily assist in reviewing your overdraft fees and create a claim.

Consumer Issues Arising From Customer Loyalty Schemes

Understanding Terms and Conditions

When signing up for a customer loyalty program, consumers must understand the terms and conditions. You want to be sure that you know what the company is offering you and how you can benefit. In the past, consumers have filed lawsuits based on not earning reward points correctly or being provided benefits as stated by the company in the terms and conditions. The company must provide details as to what you can expect from the program, so be sure to fully understand the offer before signing up.

Data Collection

Such customer loyalty programs also collect personal data. By signing up for a program, you need to be aware as to what the company plans on doing with your personal information. Unfortunately, some groups will sell your personal information which results in constant spam phone calls and emails. You want to fully understand the privacy policies of a program before moving forward.

Pay Attention

As the consumer, it is also important to pay attention to the loyalty program. Many times, the marketing materials of a loyalty program will not match the terms and conditions. This can lead to false information and the ability to file litigation against the company for deceptive or unfair advertising. After signing up for a loyalty program, be sure you review any materials you are provided. Companies may change policies or terms at a moment’s notice that may affect the benefits you receive.

If any changes are made that place your reward count at risk or are not based on what the company has promised, then you may be able to file a legal claim. Always pay attention to any changes and be sure that the company has a right to do so. This will ensure that you are able to get the most out of your loyalty program.

While most companies will offer loyalty programs that are beneficial to the customer and easily understood, others do not. False advertising or misleading claims may be made that are unfair to the consumer. It is essential that as the consumer, you understand your rights. You need to know that you are being treated fairly and the business is holding up their end of the contract.

If you or someone you love has been affected by a customer loyalty program in a negative way, give our office a call. The attorneys at Sheehan & Associates P.C. are ready to serve you. We can review your individual case and find the right way to take action regarding loyalty program issues.

Cosmetics

In the United States, cosmetics and personal care products are used on a daily basis. Such products are supposed to be tested for safety before they are available for purchase in retail stores. However, there are many companies that use dangerous chemicals and consumers are none the wiser. Companies that use toxic chemicals in their products put consumers at risk of health issues. At Sheehan & Associates P.C., we focus on offering legal assistance in a variety of areas including cosmetics. If you or someone you love has been negatively affected by a cosmetic product, we can help.

Federal Regulations

In the US, the law does not require cosmetics to have FDA approval before they are put on the market. However, there are laws and regulations in place that apply to cosmetics. The main laws include the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act along with the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act.

In general, a company or individual that manufactures and/or markets cosmetics is legally responsible for ensuring the safety of the product. FDA regulations do not require tests to be completed that demonstrate the safety of products or the ingredients used. The FDA does advise manufacturers to use testing that is necessary to ensure the ingredients used and the product itself is safe for the consumer.

However, companies may not adhere to these guidelines and use ingredients in their products that are unsafe. Companies have also been known to avoid placing ingredients on the labels of their products or mislead consumers by calling an ingredient something else rather than what it really is.

Product Liability

It is not uncommon for a cosmetic product to cause an injury to a consumer. From an allergic reaction to an infection or other complication, consumers can be negatively affected by a product due to false advertising or misleading information about a product. The consumer affected as the right to file a lawsuit against the company claiming product liability.

The injured party can sue the manufacturer and the seller of the product if the injury caused was due to a defect, design defect or improper labeling. Strict product liability is an option that many states offer in this regard. A consumer suing with strict liability will need to prove that the individual is the type of consumer the company intended the product to be used by, that the defect took place after the product was sold and that an injury occurred.

An allergic reaction is a common reason behind many product lawsuits. If a manufacturer knows or should know that a product could cause an allergic reaction, that should be made known. A consumer can sue if a warning is not provided. The option to file a claim due to an allergic reaction would need to be determined on a case to case basis.

Overall, if you have been affected negatively by a cosmetic product, you have legal options. Contact our office today to find out how we can help you. Our team of attorneys will review your case and help determine if you have a legal right to file a claim.

Defective Electronic Devices

As a consumer, you want to feel that your rights are protected when purchasing items or services. Thankfully, there are laws on a state and federal level that protect consumers in numerous scenarios. At Sheehan & Associates P.C., we offer legal assistance in several areas of consumer law including defective electronic devices. Companies are under more pressure than ever before to create new computers and other electronic devices. Because of this, items are being marketed and manufactured with defects. It is the duty of a company to ensure all products are working properly as advertised or promised.

If you have purchased an electronic device that is defective, you do have a legal right to approach the company for a solution. As a consumer, you expect the products you purchase to be tested and work as expected. Computers, tablets, smartphones, televisions, gaming consoles, notebooks, and other devices are often shipped to retail stores and do not have the proper software or are defective. In some instances, the manufacturer will know a product is defective and sell it anyway.

This can lead to major issues with a device that cost a great deal of money. It can also lead to consumers losing valuable data, such as work information or school work. State and federal law help to provide consumers with a solution for products that are defective. Consumers are usually unaware of their rights, so big companies continue to get away with creating defective merchandise.

At Sheehan & Associates P.C., we take on big and small corporations to fight for the rights of the consumer. Any consumer affected by a defective electronic device has the right to file a class action lawsuit. The suit would represent all consumers that purchased the same defective product. This option provides a more powerful as well as effective way to take on a corporation, forcing the company to acknowledge their legal responsibility and provide compensation to the members of the suit.

Personal Injury

Along with problems involving the operation of a defective electronic device, there is also a personal injury risk. Electronic devices have been known to cause electrocution, burns, and fires. Neurological and cardiovascular injuries are also on the list of injuries that can occur due to faulty equipment. Injuries can leave a consumer with a significant medical problem which can cause disability or the need for intensive medical care.

If you or a loved one have been injured by an electronic device, it’s time to seek legal counsel. Our attorneys will be able to review your case and determine if you have a legal right to sue the company for compensation. We can help get the ball rolling with a case and find the right course of action to file a legal claim.

At Sheehan & Associates P.C., we want to help you. Contact our team today if you have been affected by a defective electronic device. Our attorneys are happy to discuss the details of your case and help you pursue a legal claim. Give our office a call today to set up an appointment for a consultation.

Failure to Cancel Services or Subscriptions

Consumer law covers a number of areas, including services and subscriptions. As consumers, we all take advantage of such services like gym memberships or magazine subscription services. Many times, consumers end up paying more than they bargained for when trying to cancel their services or subscription accounts. At Sheehan & Associates P.C., we can help any consumer with a cancellation issue. There are state and federal laws regarding such programs that can help you cancel your account and avoid monthly payments.

Any service or subscription you sign up for should have a cancellation policy. In general, you will need to understand the cancellation policy and follow it when you wish to stop the service or cease a subscription. However, in some cases, fraudulent means, misrepresentation of the service or a failed agreement can give you the right to cancel the contract. Knowing your rights in this instance can assist you in stopping the services or subscription.

In an instance of misrepresentation and/or fraud, our attorneys can help you file a claim and complete cancellation. We can review your case and determine if an instance of fraud took place, helping you to move forward, no longer tied to the company or program.

Specific Contract Laws

Consumer contracts for subscriptions or services will vary. A common issue among consumers can be found regarding gym membership contracts. You have the right to cancel a contract in a given time frame upon signing up as well as based on cancellation terms for the future. There are also certain rights given to you for cancellation based on state laws. However, most individuals have no idea what their rights are or how to go about canceling such a service without having to pay additional fees or waiting until the cancellation window is open.

It is important for every consumer to know the laws surrounding an industry before signing a contract. But if you are like most consumers, you don’t know these laws and even where to start looking. This is where our office comes in. At Sheehan & Associates, we can help you to learn more about laws in a given industry before signing a contract. We can also help by reviewing terms of an agreement you signed that you no longer want to be involved in.

For most consumers, they are intimidated by the contract language or what they are being told by the service provider. Don’t just believe anything you are told or continue to pay for a service or subscription because you think you have to. You do have cancellation rights. By contacting our office, we can determine the best course of action for your individual case.

Perhaps you didn’t understand your rights when signing a contract? Then we can help. If you signed a contract for service and the provider is not holding up to their end of the bargain but are still charging you, we can help. No matter your situation, we can review the terms of the agreement and work on a solution.

If you or a loved one have been affected by a cancellation issue, give our office a call. We are happy to provide quality legal assistance.

Failure to Honor Warranties on Products

At Sheehan & Associates P.C., we focus our efforts on assisting consumers with issues involving consumer protection laws. One area in which we provide legal advice involves warranties. Manufacturers, as well as retailers, will offer warranties for products they sell. The warranty is a way to protect the consumer from financial harm if the product is found to be defective. A warranty can appear attractive to a consumer it is a reassurance of sorts that acknowledges that the purchase is protected if the product fails to work as it should. Our office assists with legal situations that involve a company that does not honor a warranty for a product.

Warranties are provided on a number of products purchased by consumers, including large purchases such as a home or vehicle as well as smaller items like electronics or appliances. If you have purchased a product and it proves to be defective, you should be able to rely on a warranty to provide a solution. However, in some cases, the retailer or manufacturer will refuse to honor the warranty.

When a refusal for a warranty is given, you can pursue legal action to recover compensation. You may have to file a claim based on state laws of your given location. With the help of our attorneys’, we will find a course of action that will ensure you are protected, and your warranty honored.

Understanding a Warranty

A warranty of a product is an expressed or implied representation of a service or product. There are state laws as well as federal laws in place that enforce warranties if the warrantor does not honor the terms of the deal. If a service or product that has a warranty is not as it should be, then the supplier or seller has a duty to replace the item, repair or offer a refund for the service/product.

However, warranties do have stipulations, including being limited in the time frame in which they apply to a product or service. It is important to understand every aspect of a warranty in order to know if it applies to the product as it stands. With legal assistance, the warranty can be reviewed and a case can be built based on your situation depending on which laws apply.

Providers of a warranty will try to get around their responsibility by claiming the problem of the product is not covered by the warranty or that the warranty is no longer valid. It is important to review the statute of limitations with any warranty. Our attorneys can review the item or service you are dealing with to determine the statute of limitations of that item to see if you have the right to file a claim.

If you or a loved one have been affected by a warranty issue, contact our office today. We can review the details of your case and help you file a claim if one is warranted. Our team has vast experience working with warranties and can help you find a beneficial solution.

False Advertising

At Sheehan & Associates P.C., we provide services for several areas of consumer and class action law, including false advertising. In the United States, there are both federal and state laws regarding advertising to prohibit several types of deceptive behavior when it comes to products and services. With these laws in place, the rights of consumers are protected. However, most individuals have no idea how to fight a false advertising issue. With our legal help, you can seek monetary damages when you have been misled due to misleading advertising practices.

A company can be sued for false advertising. Many states in the US have a specific law that applies to false advertising that provides the option to sue for the consumer. It is important to work with an experienced attorney regarding your claim so that all local and federal laws are considered within your lawsuit.

False Advertising Definition

The definition of false advertising in general regards several factors based on the law. Consumers will need to show that the advertising they were subject to was misleading or false, that the company lied about something important regarding their products/services, that the false advertisement was seen by the consumer and that the advertising played a role in the purchase of the service or product.

In such a case, a consumer can show that they would not have purchased the product or service if not for the false advertising. They can show that the advertisement actually caused the individual to pay more than they would have in another circumstance, perhaps by going with another retailer.

Based on the law, a false advertisement can directly state something that is misleading or not true. It can also be considered false based on what the advertisement does not say. If important information is not included and the consumer would not have purchased the product or service due to that information, then the individual can sue based on the failure to disclose.

Penalties for False Advertising

At Sheehan & Associates P.C., we have handled several cases involving false advertising. Each case is different and can result in a varying outcome. There are several penalties in place regarding false advertising cases. If the case concludes that false advertising included fraud, then the company could be charged with a criminal penalty. Wire or mail fraud charges may be included due to an advertisement being distributed online or via mail.

A civil penalty may also be in play when it comes to false advertising. In some states, consumers have the ability to collect statutory penalties. It is important to know your options based on your location. With our help, we can build a case based on federal and state laws to help you fight an instance of false advertising.

False advertising comes in many forms, from hidden fees to misleading labels. Our law office is here to help. If you feel that were treated unfairly due to false advertising or mislead, give our team a call today. We will review your claim and help determine if you have a case.

False and Misleading Retail Sales

There are state and federal laws in place that protect consumers from advertising that either false or misleading. The laws make a deceptive claim illegal and provide consumers with the ability to take legal action against a company that takes part in such practices. At Sheehan & Associates P.C., we can provide legal assistance to any consumer who has been wrongfully treated by a business due to false and misleading advertising.

No business is allowed to make a false, misleading or deceptive claim involving a product or service. Such claims can include the price of the item, the quality or purpose. Consumers often fall victim to misleading or false advertising and have no idea they can take legal action against the business.

Understanding False and Misleading Advertising

When it comes to advertising, a false ad would be one that involves a claim that is untrue or deceptive. Advertising that is considered misleading involves a product that creates an invalid understanding of a product. With either practice, advertising can lead to the consumer losing financial or cause other damage.

The financial loss or damage may be minimal but the consumer should not have to endure such behavior from businesses. Consumers who have lost financially or faced other damages due to false or misleading advertising can take part in a class action lawsuit against the company to recover compensation for losses.

Tactics Used by Businesses

Companies can use a variety of tactics that involve false or misleading advertising. One of the most common is the bait & switch technique. This involves advertising a product for a certain price but will not sell at that price. The advertisement gets the consumer in the door and then the business tries to sell the item at a higher price.

Another common tactic is high-pressure sales. Consumers are badgered to purchase a product over and over until they give in. In these scenarios, the consumer does not have the intention of buying a product.

Artificially inflating prices is another way a business can use advertising to trick consumers. They give the illusion that the item is a great deal but in reality, the price being paid is higher than it should be.

In a false or misleading advertising case, consumers can benefit in several ways. Monetary damages may be awarded or an injunction placed on the business, forcing them to stop running the advertisements. An injunction may also be placed on the business to stop taking part in deceptive behavior or to disclose certain statements during advertising.

It is important to take legal action when you have been deceived by a business via a false or misleading advertisement. Businesses are to adhere to certain standards and those that do not only harm the consumer. By taking action, you are not only helping yourself but other individuals who may be negatively affected by the actions of the business.

Contact our office today to learn more about what we can do for you involving false and misleading business advertisements.

Food Fraud

Food fraud can take place in many forms. A company might substitute one product for another, use additives or enhancements that are not approved or misrepresent the country of origin of the product. Stolen food shipments or intentional contamination of the product is also considered food fraud.

Food fraud is a continuum of deception. At one end of spectrum, there is the deliberate substitution of inferior and potentially harmful ingredients. At the other end is the mislabeling of common products by the largest food companies. The largest food companies will not engage in outright food fraud intentionally by using different ingredients that could be harmful. Instead, they typically would engage in a more subtle deception – all natural claims, no preservatives, healthy, yet containing lots of chemicals, etc.

Food  Fraud  (GFSI  Position  Paper  2014)  (GFSI):    “…is  deception  of  consumers  using  food products,  ingredients  and  packaging  for  economic  gain  and  includes  substitution,  unapproved enhancements, misbranding, counterfeiting, stolen goods or others.” http://foodfraud.msu.edu/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/FFIR-Glossary-Definitions-2018-v9-formatted.pdf

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) determine economically motivated adulteration (EMA) as “the fraudulent, intentional substitution or addition of a substance in a product for the purpose of increasing the apparent value of the product or reducing the cost of its production,” that is, for economic gain (Lutter 2009). https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/1750-3841.13256

Continuum of Food Fraud

Replacement of Higher Quality Ingredients with Lower Quality Potentially Harmful Ingredients

Substitution of one type of spice or meat for another

Dilution of juice by using lower valued juices like apple juice in place of pricier juices

There are several elements that constitute food fraud. A product that has been diluted had a substation of an ingredient or an addition of a food product that is not revealed is a situation of food fraud. The apparent value of the product cannot be increased for financial gain, nor can the product cause harm to others, such as through contamination.

The more serious cases of food fraud involve items that have been tampered with, be it intentionally or unintentionally. Consumers can become sick or even die due to issues involving food items where foreign objects have been placed inside a food product or allergens are included when the item was supposed to be safe to ingest. It is important to know your rights in such situations so that you can seek compensation for medical expenses or funeral costs when your life is severely affected by food fraud.

Misleading labels

False or misleading claims is considered a form of food fraud.

Misleading indications (words/pictures)

Use of words susch as “natural,” “traditional.” Use of pictures for example, depictions on packaging that do not reflect the nature of the product inside, or the methods of production.

All Natural

Non-Fat

An example of this could be when a food is labeled ‘non-fat’ when that is not true. A product may state that it is all natural with only organic ingredients. However, the item may actually not be pesticide free.

Healthy

Misleading Containers and Packaging

Another issue regarding food fraud involves oversized packaging or fillers to make food appear larger than it really is. Take for example a bag of chips. For years, consumers have been unhappy with the amount of empty space within a bag of chips. Over the past few years, lawsuits have popped up involving the empty space in chip bags as consumers feel the sizing is misleading once the empty space is revealed.

How you can fight back against all types of food fraud

State and federal laws place restrictions on food companies on how they are to provide their products to the public, including advertising. While most companies will adhere to these standards, there are those who do not.

At Sheehan & Associates P.C., we offer legal counsel regarding consumer law, including the area of food fraud. If you have been affected in a negative manner by a food product due to fraudulent means, we can help.

Knowing your legal rights as a consumer can help you fight companies that participate in food fraud when you are affected. Our team of attorneys can easily review any case involving food fraud and help you file an appropriate claim.

If you or someone you love has been affected by an instance of food fraud or maybe bought something because of what the labels told you, give our office a call. We are happy to review your situation and provide the right course of legal action for your individual case.

Negative Option Billing

The term negative option billing is used to describe a business practice where consumers are given goods or services that were not provided previously and they must continue to pay for the items/services or decline before billing. Mail orders services are an example of this type of practice, such as book clubs or CD/tape services provided decades ago. Today, consumers are still affected by negative option billing and usually have no idea of their legal rights involving the matter. At Sheehan & Associates P.C., we can help you fight such issues and ensure that you are not charged for services and/or products that you do not want nor ordered.

Most of the negative option billing practices involves a consumer signing up for a free or low-cost product or service. Once signed up, the company then provides the free or low-cost items, but then places the consumer on the hook to pay for monthly shipments of items, unless the company is specifically told by the consumer that they do not want the products. Bills then begin arriving and consumers can be hounded by the company to pay up.

Such examples of negative option billing would be mail order services such as Colombia House from the 80s and 90s. Consumers would fill out a card to receive free music tapes but then be bound to pay for new music as it was sent month after month. Today, the same type of issue can be found due to online credit card billing.

Negative option billing today consists of consumers going online and signing up somewhere for free, for trial offers, sample gifts, etc. Little does the consumer know, they have actually been caught in this type of negative billing option and they will not have to pay for whatever the company sends. The companies involved in such scams do not disclose terms or they make it impossible to know such terms due to the very fine print.

Once signed up, the company make is very difficult, basically impossible, to opt out and stop receiving the goods and/or services. Once the consumer realizes they are being charged, billing has already taken place. Many consumers can see their credit affected due to this type of business practice. Bills go unpaid and the consumer has no idea they even were signed up or owed any money.

It is important to learn more about the negative option billing process, particularly if you have been affected as a consumer. At Sheehan & Associates P.C., we focus on consumer law including negative option billing. We have helped consumers before fight such billing actions, protecting their credit and financial future.

In the United States, the Federal Trade Commission is working to clean up the practice, ensuring better consumer protections. There is basically a gray area though regarding jurisdiction and the problem is so large that regulating the issue is difficult. The FTC does require a club or service that uses the negative option plan to clearly indicate minimum purchase requirements and cancellation procedures, but consumers are still being affected.

If you have been affected by this practice, give our office a call today. We can schedule a consultation and review your claim, helping to build a case based on your individual needs.

Unfair Practices

Every operating business must provide services and/or products in accordance with state and federal laws. Businesses are to conduct themselves in a fair and just way, for every consumer. However, not every business honors such commitments. Unfair practices are often seen among businesses, with children, the elderly and minorities the main targets. At Sheehan & Associates P.C., we focus our efforts on fighting unfair businesses practices, so consumers are provided just compensation by those who take part in wrongdoing.

Consumer protection laws provide a legal outlet for victims of unfair business practices. There is a wide range of actions that a business can conduct that can lead to unfair business practice lawsuits. This can include creating a contract and forcing a client to sign that involves unreasonable terms or using the ignorance of the consumer against them.

Misrepresentation of the condition, ingredients or benefits of a product or service is also considered an unfair business practice. Companies are not allowed to provide false information that has a negative connotation of products or services provided by another company. Refusal to honor a sales warranty, taking advantage of elderly customers and mistreating minorities are among other issues involving unfair business practices.

Building a Strong Case

If you have been subject to unfair business practices, then it is time to take action. At Sheehan & Associates P.C., we can help you build a strong case. Many big corporations will avoid unfair business practices lawsuits by destroying evidence or denying the allegations against them. Because of this, it is important for consumers to hang on to any correspondence, including emails, messages via telephone, receipts, etc.

A list of people that you have dealt with about the incident is also important. When you begin to realize that you are facing a situation involving unfair business practices, begin to take notes. Write down anyone you talk to, be it customer support reps, managers, etc. This way, you have information that can be used to build a strong case.

Unfortunately for consumers, unfair business practices do occur. Consumers should never feel that they are being treated unfairly for any reason. Often times, consumers are treated differently due to age, such as being taken advantage of in their golden years. Minorities are often denied services due to their race or face other issues when dealing with businesses. No consumer should be discriminated against at any time, be it due to race, age, gender or other factors.

At our law office, we take unfair business practices very seriously. We specialize in consumer law and can easily review your case to determine if you have a claim. Once you meet with our attorneys, we will look over the information you have and see how local and federal laws could apply to your claim.

If we feel that you have a case, we will then get to work for you. Do not accept unfair treatment from a business. Let our team of professional attorneys work to see you receive the just compensation deserved for being treated poorly by any business.
