If a defective consumer product causes serious injury or property damage, the manufacturers, distributors and retailers can and should be held legally accountable. You should not bear the burden of losses caused by a negligent corporation's failure to provide safe products to consumers, whether because of a defective design, a manufacturing defect, or a failure to warn. Speak with an experienced product liability attorney to find out your legal options before your statute of limitations causes your claims to expire.
California has very strong consumer and competitor protections against businesses engaged in false advertising. False advertising can include deliberate misrepresentations in print, broadcast or online advertising, deceptive or misleading labels and packaging, failure to disclose important details, or bait-and-switch schemes. We have successfully pursued both individual and class action claims against false advertisers in numerous industries. If you got ripped off, we will exact justice for you.
The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act regulates the conduct of third-party debt collectors who are attempting to collect debts on behalf of another person or entity. Debt collectors often disobey these rules in an attempt to collect old debts at any cost. If you've been harassed by a disreputable debt collector, you may be entitled to $1,000 in statutory damages, actual or punitive damages, as well as your attorney's fees. Most attorneys have never actually tried an FDCPA case to a federal jury. We have.
