Consumer Law

Consumer claims can come in a variety of forms. Consumer law could generally be referred to as a group of laws that protect consumers from unfair or predatory business practices.  Claims could come under a variety of statutes such as the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act ("FDCPA"), the Ohio Consumer Sales Practices Act ("OCSPA"), Lemon Law, or under a common law claim such as fraud.  

A consumer lawsuit could concern false advertising, poorly disclosed or fraudulent fees, a business's failure to adhere to a warranty,  or a business's failure to provide the specific good or service purchased by the consumer.  Sometimes a business will use their knowledge to recommend unnecessary services.  Unlike other lawsuits, attorney fees are often awarded as part of a successful claim in consumer litigation.
