Consumer Protection FAQ - Do You Have a Case?


Video Transcription

The questions I get a lot as a lawyer at a Consumer Law Firm are “What exactly is consumer protection?” and “Do I have a case?”.
Consumer law is intended to assure fairness for ordinary people in the marketplace. It’s a set of rules and regulations that requires accuracy and truthfulness in consumer information and that prohibits below board or deceptive business practices.

The marketplace is virtually anything from the supermarket to the stock market. It includes the employment marketplace the housing and rental marketplace the higher education marketplace and virtually anything to do with loans or credit.

So you might have a case:

  • When you’re sitting at the closing table for the purchase of a home or at the dealership for the purchase of a car and the credit bureau provides inaccurate credit history about you that causes you to be denied that loan or to be charged an elevated interest rate for it.
  • When the bank or dealership tacks on additional undisclosed fees.
  • When the bill collector tacks on even more bogus fees or engages in harassing or deceptive business practices.
  • When the background screening company mixes your background information with that of someone with a criminal history and that inaccurate information causes you to be denied an apartment or a job.
  • When the food cosmetics or other product or service you purchased is not as advertised in other words when you didn’t get what you paid for.

Now, unfortunately, there’s still way too many segments of the marketplace that have misinformation and deceptive practices, but the good news is that federal and state consumer protection laws are strong that allow you to hire an experienced attorney to set the record straight and to recoup their losses without any out-of-pocket cost to you.

Now whether you have a case will of course depend on your particular facts and circumstances but if you are interested in a free case review I hope you contact us through the website below or call us at the toll free number below [1-877-735-8600] .

What Our Clients Are Saying

After getting rejected for various jobs due to my background I was down. However, after getting the Pre Adverse Letters I immediately knew something was wrong. Everyday we see advertising about law firms in tv and social media. When I came across the page of Francis, Maiilman on Facebook I didn't know if they could help me because I was in Florida. From my first conversation with thier Paralegal I knew I had made the correct choice. Communication is a very important part of relations between lawyers and thier clients. My communication has been great and all they promised was to try thier best. That was enough for me. Our expectations were exceeded when Attorney Alexis emailed and called me to inform me that we were offered NOT 1 but TWO financial settlements. I had to let it sink in first because this was not what we expected. I can't say enough about this firm. Thier personal touch, willingness to help those who some in society dont value, tenacity, and assertiveness are priceless. I would recommend this firm to anyone who thinks there are issues with thier background check and Pre Adverse Letters. Please give them a call or send an email. They went above and beyond for my family and.me. On top of everything I got offered a job also. Thanks Alexis and everyone at Francis Mailman.

Hope you are well! I closed on my house and wanted to thank you. You helped me get a better interest rate by fixing the BOFA issue, and the money helped me with a down payment (the settlement was higher than I expected). And thank you!!!!
