Consumer Protection Attorneys
Our consumer protection lawyers fight for our clients to defend consumer rights in a wide variety of cases and class action lawsuits. Consumer protection cases can include when companies try to take advantage of consumers through false advertising or labeling practices, use deceptive marketing tactics, or even create accounts for consumers without their permission, as well as a number of other illegal, deceptive and dishonest practices. As consumer rights attorneys, we advocate for our clients as well as all consumers by fighting to uphold consumer protection laws and hold companies accountable when laws are broken.
We work with clients across the country as well as in our home states of Arkansas and Texas to fight for consumer rights.
What are Consumer Protection Laws?
Most consumer protection cases involve an action a company took, knowingly or unknowingly, that took advantage of consumers. Thankfully, there are a number of laws that aim to protect consumers from deceptive and illegal business practices.
The most common types of consumer protection cases are:
- Consumer Fraud
- False Product Claims or Advertising
- Deceptive Marketing Tactics
- Illegal Fees or Charges
In addition to a number of laws that help to protect consumers, states also often empower their Attorneys General to enforce consumer protection laws within their own states. The Federal Trade Commission also oversees consumer protection laws nationally.
What does a Consumer Protection Attorney do?
Your first question may be that if we have laws to protect consumers and governmental agencies to keep companies in check, why do we need consumer protection lawyers? The reality is that governmental agencies fine companies and put a stop to their business practices—but they don’t always help victims of deceptive and illegal business practices seek restitution or renumeration for the harm they caused.
If an individual is hurt by illegal business practices, they may need a consumer protection lawyer to help them hold the company accountable.

Were you a victim of consumer rights violations?
Consumer protection claims are different than other kinds of legal claims because they can often affect thousands of other individuals. Speaking with an experienced consumer protection attorney can help you understand the unique needs of your case and if your case should help defend the rights of other consumers who may have also been affected.
Regardless of whether your case is better suited to a class action or an individual case, building a successful case requires proving the injury and any other information necessary to prove the product or company caused the injury. This can often mean having to dig through a paper trail, taking legal actions to get information or hiring experts to help get the facts of the case. A consumer protection lawyer may be able to help you make your claim.
