Consumer Lawyers Who Protect Consumer Rights
Just like doctors, lawyers often focus their practices in a few particular areas. Knowing how to pick an experienced, knowledgeable attorney is very important if you have been a victim of consumer fraud. Consumer law is complex, comprised of both state and federal law.This is a powerful tool that often causes businesses to settle claims even before the lawsuit is ever filed.
The attorneys of Minnillo & Jenkins Co., LPA frequently address consumer law issues and have the experience and know-how to help you.
What Kinds Of Problems Can Be Addressed By Consumer Lawyers?
Our attorneys can assist you with:
- Foreclosure defense
- Fraudulent billing practices by service providers such as cell phone and cable companies
- Inaccurate Credit reports
- Harassing phone call from debt collectors
- Unresponsive mortgage companies
- Recurring problems or defects in new cars, campers, or mobile homes
- Wrongful Repossession
In some instances, if you are successful with bringing your statutory claim against businesses such as debt collectors, mortgage brokers, lenders, credit reporting agencies, or car dealers, the court will award you attorney’s fees and litigation expenses.
There may be steps that need to be taken before a lawsuit can be filed. Some laws require that correspondence be sent or certain attempts at settlement be made before filing suit. At Minnillo & Jenkins Co., LPA we are familiar with these types of requirements, and the “alphabet soup” of state and federal consumer laws, such as the FDCPA, FCRA, ECOA, RESPA, TILA, TCPA and the CSPA. We will provide you advice about your potential outcomes, and give you our opinion about your best course of action. In many cases, we will agree to represent you with a contingency fee agreement. This means that we will not require you pay us in advance for our representation.
We Want To Hear From You
Don’t be discouraged if you think your individual recovery might be too small for a lawyer to take notice. In some cases, you may not be the only person damaged by an unfair practice. In those instances, we may suggest bringing a class action lawsuit, in which you get the opportunity to represent your interests and the interests of other consumers like you.
