CONSUMER RIGHTS ATTORNEY
The Attorney General of a particular state houses the division of Consumer protection and its team of consumer fraud attorneys. Complaints about misleading advertising or business practices that are unlawful can be filed and that division investigates and mediates on behalf of the consumer. In the case of multiple persons filing a complaint of bad business practices or fraudulent advertising, a suit may be filed with the state's superior court to stop illegal business practices.
Some states take on individual complaints about business and some states are jus too large to do so. In the event of multiple complaints about a business, a state's attorney general will file a suit and investigate to change the law of the state so that the particular business in question won't be able to function in the same way or at all. The suits filed against certain businesses sometimes result in monetary compensation for individuals.
All Attorney General's offices provide a list of suggestions for consumer protection on their particular state's web sites.
Consumer protection lawyers are in the business of protecting individuals and businesses from fraudulent advertising, civil infractions such as discrimination and death and bodily harm due to negligence on the part of businesses. They also protect workers from unfair working conditions and also if an employee has been fired for seemingly no good reason, and also defend people from insurance companies who withhold payments.
