Consumer Rights Lawsuits
Various forms of misconduct can violate a consumer’s rights; the most common occur when consumers are most vulnerable. The following are just some examples of how a person’s rights may be violated when purchasing or using products and services:
- Defective products (drugs, vehicles, toys)
- Fraud (billing, security)
- Breach of warranty
- Breach of privacy
- Unfair or deceptive practices
When you are wronged by a business or corporation, you may think you have no options. However, under federal laws, such as the Federal Trade Commission Act and the Consumer Product Safety Act, as well as numerous state laws, your rights as a consumer are protected, and you have the ability to enforce those rights. An attorney can help you through the complex process of filing a lawsuit, whether you choose to file on your own, or participate in a class action.

Class Action for Cellulite Cream – $62 million recovery for a nationwide class of customers who purchased products that were advertised to reduce cellulite in the human body. We obtained expert testimony to demonstrate that the active ingredients in the products could not shrink fat cells or fundamentally change the structure of skin, such that the products would have no physiological effect on cellulite in the body. Cash refunds were paid to the purchasers of the products, and the manufacturer changed its advertising to stop making those claims.
