What Are Consumer Protection Laws?

Consumer protection laws shield individuals who purchase goods and services against fraudulent, deceptive, and misleading practices. The purpose of these laws is to protect consumers from abuses of power and fraud by commercial enterprises, corporations, financial institutions, debt collection agencies, and other entities. Some consumer protection laws allow us to collect exemplary or punitive damages on behalf of our clients.

Consumer protection deals with a range of legal matters, including but not limited to:

  • Breaches of consumer warranties
  • Credit reporting
  • Debt collection
  • Defective products
  • Homeowners’ rights
  • Foreclosure
  • Fraud
  • Investment contracts (securities)
  • Lending services
  • Mortgages
  • Repossession
  • Service contracts
  • Student loans
  • Car dealership unfair trade practices
  • Breaches of motor vehicle service contracts

You have the right to receive genuine goods and services that are free of defects or fraud. Faulty products and various services that fail to meet this standard could serve as grounds for a consumer protection complaint, unfair trade practices complaint, or lawsuit.

At Lawton & Cates, we take pride in the case results we have been able to secure for our clients. Not only are we able to hold banks, car dealerships, credit card companies, and other businesses accountable for their actions, we have secured hundreds of thousands of dollars for victims and their families.
