Multinational corporations and chain stores don't always make executive decisions in the best interests of their customers. Too often, big companies assume that because they have money, a name, and lobbyists walking the halls of Congress, they don't have to answer to anybody. At the law office of Murray & Murray Co., L.P.A. we represent victims of false advertising, bait and switch tactics, predatory lending, over billing, and other practices on the part of companies that take advantage of consumers. We are prepared to subpoena company records, demand an audit of finances, and conduct our own investigation into suspicious activity and consumer fraud.
If you've fought with customer service and gotten nowhere, let us do the talking for you -- contact a consumer protection attorney at Murray & Murray today.
We represent consumers in regard to the following consumer protection issues including: deceptive mortgage broker practices, mail order fraud, refusal to honor valid warranty, credit report problems, bad faith insurance practices, home contractor / subcontractor disputes, lemon law, identity theft, cell phones, telephone land lines, ERISA, ground water contamination, nursing homes, automobile failures and defects, life insurance disputes, investments, consumer fraud and banking violations.
I can't get anywhere with my complaint -- What Should I Do?
If a retailer, contractor, insurance company, or company won't honor the terms of a sale or service agreement, going to court may be your only option. In certain instances, especially in the financial industry, companies have managed to influence legislation through years of lobbying efforts, changing laws that put consumers at a disadvantage in many ways. In order to determine whether you have a case and what options are available to you, our consumer protection attorneys will evaluate what laws apply and what you can do to recover your losses.
Do I Have to Go to Court?
In many instances, the law requires those guilty of fraud or deceptive practices to pay attorneys' fees in decisions against them. Additionally, no company wants bad publicity. As a result, it's not unusual for companies to settle a dispute in order to avoid going to court. At Murray & Murray Co., L.P.A., we prepare each case for litigation in order to leverage our client's case. When we enter the negotiating room, the other side understands we are prepared to expose their dishonest, shameful practices to the light of day. That's why we can often settle a case without going to trial.
We understand what needs to be done to assert consumers’ rights against corporations and companies who don’t think they have to answer to the law. To schedule a free appointment to discuss your case, contact Murray & Murray today.
Credit Reporting, Debt Collection and Lending
Annoying debt collectors may be more than an inconvenience. They may be breaking the law with their aggressive tactics. The Sandusky, Ohio, law firm of Murray & Murray welcomes the opportunity to review the facts in your situation to determine if you may be the victim of one or more of the following:
Debt collectors have very specific rules to follow when attempting to collect on consumer debts. They must announce at the beginning of a call or in any written correspondence that they are attempting to collect a debt. If they call you, they must call between the hours of 8 a.m. and 9 p.m., local time. If you ask for validation of the debt, they must provide documentation showing that you owe the amounts claimed. If you ask in writing for a debt collection agency to stop contacting you, they must do so, with certain exceptions.
Many debt collection agencies have little regard for the law and see fit to break the law in order to collect on debts. When these companies do break the law, it is necessary for consumer protection lawyers to take them to task.
The consumer protection lawyers at Murray & Murray represent clients who have been victims of credit and debt violations. Violators are liable for attorneys’ fees, as well as any statutory damages. Call or e-mail our law firm if you believe you are being unfairly hounded or harassed by debt collectors.
