Representation in Class Action Consumer Cases
Our skilled attorneys take on all types of consumer protection cases, including:
Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA): This statute covers how companies report your personal information to credit bureaus and protects your rights in the event of errors on your credit history. FCRA also prevents unlawful invasions of privacy with respect to the data companies collect from you.
Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA): This federal statute, and its Florida equivalent, makes it unlawful for a creditor or collection agency to use offensive or unfair methods when trying to collect a debt. Violations may allow you to sue for damages.
Unfair Business Practice/False Advertising Claims: US and Florida statutes bar companies from disseminating untrue or misleading claims when marketing their goods and services. In the context of consumer class action matters, these claims stem from warranties, insurance claims, residential leases, and related areas. You may also have legal options if a company makes false representations regarding the privacy of your personal data.
