Have you ever been promised millions of dollars by the Nigerian Secretary of something or other? What about a bait and switch scheme? Or, have you bought a new car that has problems the minute you drive it off the lot? These are a sampling of Wisconsin consumer law issues you may face. The lawyers at Lawton & Cates have sued credit card companies for tacking on extra charges, automobile dealers for "lemon law" violations, and other entities for other consumer law related matters.
Lawton & Cates worked with the University of Wisconsin Law School to found the Consumer Law Clinic. We continue to work with the Clinic to help consumers get a fair shake in the marketplace.
