Des Moines Consumer Protection Lawyer
Standing Up For The Underdogs
American consumers rightly expect certain standards of honesty and fair dealing when purchasing goods or services. The drastic imbalance of power between businesses (particularly large corporations with vast resources) and individual consumers necessitates fair business and marketing practices.
Unfortunately, all too often, greedy businesses cross the line and take advantage of consumers through deceptive practices or false advertising. Consumers who unwittingly fall prey to these practices can end up losing large sums of money. If you are in this situation, you may feel helpless to take action. You may have tried to resolve the situation directly with the business, only to be brushed off or forced into a dead end. What can you do next?
Passionate About Fighting Injustice
Iowa was among the last states to enact consumer protection legislation. Under this relatively recent law, consumers can bring legal claims against businesses for deceptive, fraudulent or unfair business practices. Multiple consumers can also pursue class-action claims.
At Humphrey Law Firm, P.C., in Des Moines, our lawyer handles consumer protection cases statewide. Attorney Marc Humphrey is not afraid to take on big companies to expose and right injustices. A passion for protecting the underdog has permeated his entire career, which spans more than three decades.
