Federal and state laws offer a complex set of protections for consumers, from statutes that prevent unfair debt collection practices and consumer fraud to legislation that requires transparency in loans and credit offers. While these laws are comprehensive, they can be difficult to understand. If you need help with understanding and enforcing your rights as a consumer, a consumer protection lawyer can help.

How do I choose a lawyer?
Consider the following:
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located near you?
