Miami Consumer Protection Lawyer

Consumers have rights under both federal and state law in Miami, Florida. When a company tries to take advantage of a consumer, or to engage in unlawful practices such as fraud or harassment, the consumer may be able to file a claim for compensation. In some cases, a consumer may be able to file a class action lawsuit if she was one of multiple consumers who suffered similar injuries as a result of deceptive or unfair business practices. In other cases, debt collection companies treat consumers deceitfully, for example, employing fraudulent tactics in an attempt to collect debts. In yet other scenarios, consumers suffer harassment from robocalls and scam companies.

No matter what type of consumer protection issue you may have, an experienced Miami consumer protection lawyer can discuss your options with you.

Understanding the Florida Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act

What is the FDUTPA, and how does it work? According to the Florida Office of the Attorney General, this law is designed to be relatively broad when it comes to consumer protections. Accordingly, it covers consumers in a wide variety of deceptive, fraudulent, and otherwise unfair or unconscionable practices.

Since 2011, the Florida Office of the Attorney General reports that it has resolved more than 500 investigations and has recovered more than $10 billion. If you believe you may have a claim under Florida law, a Miami consumer protection law attorney can help you to determine the best path forward for your case.
