All of us are consumers. We purchase and use products and services on a daily basis. The confidence to make those purchases or use those services can be shaken when we feel like we have been “ripped off”. This includes being deprived of a fair deal, or having suffered some form of abuse by a company that puts our health, privacy, or financial security at risk. Fortunately, we are all covered by consumer protection laws that can help restore our confidence after we have experienced such harms.
Consumer protection laws are designed to help protect you from fraudulent, unfair, or unlawful business practices. Through a consumer protection class action lawsuit, consumers can restore the financial losses they and others have suffered. They can also put a stop to the company’s offending practices, ensuring that others will not be harmed in the future.
At Keller Grover, our successes are many. The lawsuit of Friedman v. 24 Hour Fitness, a case that settled for $295 million in value to affected consumers, was California’s largest civil settlement for the year 2010 as reported by The Recorder. Our lawyers have also been recognized as some of the best in the business, regularly receiving recognition as “Super Lawyers” and “Rising Stars” in Super Lawyer magazine’s annual list of top attorneys in Northern California.
Knowing one’s rights under the consumer protection laws is always the first step to enforcing those rights. We are available to take your calls and help you evaluate whether your rights have been violated, be it in banking services or smartphones, gym memberships or automobiles. We can also help you understand a wide array of consumer protection laws that may be protecting you, including California’s Unfair Competition Law (“UCL”), the Consumers Legal Remedies Act (“CLRA”), the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”), the Confidentiality of Medical Information Act (“CMIA”), the Truth in Lending Act (“TILA”).
