Our law firm provides representation for individuals who are victims of all aspects of consumer fraud by businesses that use deceptive, misleading or unconscionable tactics. Under the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act (CFA), fraud can occur if there is an affirmative misrepresentation (a statement of fact that is untrue) or the omission or concealment of a material fact relating to a product or the violation of a wide variety of specific laws enacted to protect consumers.
A consumer who is successful with a claim under the New Jersey CFA can receive a monetary award that is three times the amount of actual damages plus payment of attorney’s fees.
In addition, if you believe that there is false or incorrect information in your official credit report or if you encounter significant problems with any credit card company, please contact our office for assistance since there are federal laws to protect any improper actions by a credit card company or the presence of false or mistaken information in your credit report.
Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), along with damages for you, mandatory attorney’s fees in favor of the consumer can be awarded in many cases.
We handle a wide variety of consumer protection cases including, but not limited to, home improvement contractor fraud or breach of contract, automobile dealership fraud, unfair and deceptive trade practices and violation of laws enacted to protect debtors from improper or abusive collection tactics.
If you believe you have been a victim of any improper actions or tactics by a business or credit card company, we can evaluate your claim and, if appropriate, protect and enforce your rights with aggressive advocacy and litigation.
