Businesses sometimes take advantage of individual customers/consumers through fraud, deceptive and unfair practices, and a litany of other unethical practices that often lead to serious financial loss and emotional turmoil. These fraudulent practices are often difficult to uncover and prove. It may feel like there is no recourse for the “Little Guy” because the “Big Guns” have teams of attorneys and unlimited resources to fight their battles. But George Gesten McDonald prosecutes fraudsters big and small and the Consumer Rights and Class Action Practice Groups are dedicated to vindicating the rights of consumers.
GGM’s Consumer Rights and Class Action Practice Groups are dedicated to vindicating the rights of consumers who have been injured by fraud, deceptive trade practices, negligence, harassment and other deceptive conduct. Our consumer rights attorneys are well-versed in federal and state consumer protection 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 class action litigation.
Consumer rights litigation includes:
- Consumer Fraud: These claims involve cases in which the consumer was deceived for monetary gain.
- 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.
- Data Breach
- Privacy Rights
- Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) 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.
