Jonathan and his team did a thorough, outstanding job in keeping me informed and up-to-date every step of the way in handling my case. I felt like he listened to my questions and concerns and answered them promptly and professionally. In fact, I believe he consulted another attorney that had expertise in the area of law that he was dealing with in my case. I would highly recommend Jonathan and would call him again if I needed legal advice.
I needed an Attorney for advice and direction in a situation concerning a former employer. After a consultation with Brandon Hall it was a no-brainer. He was knowledgeable about all things concerning employee rights and wage classifications. This was a very difficult time for my wife and myself. Brandon made things very simple and gave us great confidence. Needless to say the outcome of our case was very satisfactory. Brandon used his expertise and professionalism to help us tremendously.
Consumer Protection law refers to laws which protect the rights of consumers, ensure fair trade and competition, and accurate information in the marketplace. The laws are designed to prevent businesses from engaging in fraud to deceive the consumer or to gain an unfair advantage in the marketplace. A variety of laws at both the federal and state levels exist to protect consumers. Among them are the federal Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, Truth in Lending Act, Fair Credit Billing Act, and the Tennessee Consumer Protection Act.
Other consumer protection laws exist to protect persons from unwanted telemarketing or “robo-calls” once they are placed on the do not call registry. Violations of unfair lending or ‘reverse mortgagee also can lead to individual claims. Credit discrimination based on race, sex or other illegal factor can also lead to individual claims. Payday loan establishments are often under scrutiny for consumer protection violations as well.
The Tennessee Consumer Protection Act lists some specific things which are considered a violation including:
While the Tennessee legislature has drastically chipped away the rights of consumers over the past several years, some do still exist. And the same with employment claims, every case is different so it is imperative you speak with an attorney about your particular case.
