Businesses sometimes take advantage of individual customers/consumers through fraud, deceptive and unfair practices, harassment and a litany of other unethical practices that often lead to serious financial loss and emotional turmoil. These injuries are often exacerbated by the involvement of a third-party debt collector calling at all hours. It may feel like there is no recourse for the little guy because these big businesses have teams of attorneys and unlimited resources to fight their battles. George∙Gesten∙McDonald’s Consumer Rights practice group is dedicated to vindicating the rights of consumers who have been injured by fraud, deceptive trade practices, and harassment.
Our experienced consumer rights attorneys are well versed in state and federal consumer protections laws. We will evaluate your claim on an individual basis as well as determine if your case has the potential to be the foundation for a class action litigation.
Consumer Rights litigation includes:
- Fair Debt Collection Practices Act Violations: These claims involve any case in which a debt collector harassed the debtor by actions including but not limited to calling at unreasonable hours, speaking to relatives, overly repetitious calls, obscenity, and threats.
- Predatory Lending: These claims involve any case in which the lender ignored or hindered the ability of the borrower to pay back a debt for the benefit of said lender. This can be done through loans that are unfair, fraudulent, or deceptive.
- Misleading or False Advertising: These claims involve any cases in which advertisements presented false, misleading, or dubious information about a product or service. This can include intentional deception, failure to provide a source for unproven information used to present the product or service, or other intentionally misleading information intended to deceive the consumer such as "bait and switch" advertising.
- Consumer Fraud: These claims involve any cases in which the consumer was deceived for monetary gain.
- Fair Labor Standards Act and Overtime Violations: These claims include failure to pay the mandatory minimum wage and failure to pay overtime at “time and a half.”
