When was the last time you bought a product from a company only to find out that what you purchased was nowhere near the quality you were promised, or was not even remotely close to the product or service you though you paid for? The Luchnick Law Firm protects consumers from businesses that take advantage of them through their understanding and implementation of The Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act.
A consumer is defined as a person or business who seeks or acquires, goods or services, for purchase or lease.
Consumer protection laws are designed to ensure the rights of consumers and businesses alike, as well as facilitate fair trade, competition, and accurate information in the marketplace. The laws are designed to prevent the businesses that engage in fraud or specified unfair practices from gaining an advantage over competitors. Consumer protection laws are a form of government regulation that aim to protect the rights of consumers.
For example, a government may require businesses to disclose detailed information about products—particularly in areas where safety or public health is an issue, such as food.
Consumer protection is linked to the idea of consumer rights, and to the formation of consumer organizations and statutes, which help consumers make better choices in the marketplace and get consumers the proper help they need when necessary. Government organizations and self-regulating business organizations such as the office of the Ombudsmen, the Federal Trade Commission(FTC), and the Texas Secretary of State help to regulate unfair or deceptive business practices, while provide various avenues for consumers relief.
Uniform acts, Federal statutes, and state statutes, such as the Uniform Commercial Code and the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act, have been put into effect to help facilitate fairness in the marketplace.
The Luchnick Law Firm is combines their expertise in Texas law, specifically the DTPA, with their expertise in Federal law to provide every client with complete protection.
