Consumer Class Actions
Almost every state in the United States has a ‘consumer protection’ statute to protect consumers – and other businesses – from a variety of unfair and deceptive trade practices. In addition to state laws, federal laws including, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, Truth in Lending Act, Fair Credit Billing Act, and Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, provide federal statutory rights for consumers. Usually, a consumer, including a business, will have potentially more than one claim to pursue, and at Audet & Partners, LLP our attorneys will apply years of experience to determine the best way to proceed and what law best serves the client, and, in most cases, the class members as whole.
Despite the best efforts of federal and state agencies to ‘protect’ consumers, these same agencies recognize that private enforcement of federal and state laws is critical in light of the lack of resources to prosecute every viable claim. Manipulative practices and false advertising will come in a variety of ways, but the end result is that a consumer has economically suffered by the wrongdoers conduct, including false advertising, loan fraud, misleading marketing, internet fraud, over billing and other schemes.
The attorneys at Audet & Partners, LLP have been at the forefront of protecting consumer’s rights, including pursuing false and misleading advertising claims throughout the United States. As the firm’s resume reveals, the firm has been involved in many of the largest class consumer protection cases over the past decade. At the same time, the firm has the reputation as an ethical, yet aggressive advocate for its clients. The results in fact, speak for themselves, and also reveal that the firm has avoided so called “coupon” settlements, and instead focused on ensuring that the recovery is tangible in both monetary and non-monetary relief, whether by trial or by settlement. While no guarantees will be made with respect to any client’s case, the firm is committed to justice in every case it accepts.
