CONSUMER PROTECTION

Wisconsin Consumer Act

The Wisconsin Consumer Act provides broad protections and remedies to consumers and debtors. The WCA requires merchants and creditors to include certain terms and conditions in consumer contracts, prohibits the inclusion of deceptive and abusive terms, and otherwise regulates unfair or underhanded business and debt collection practices. The WCA is a fee-shifting statute, meaning successful consumer plaintiffs can recover  the costs of their attorney fees from the merchant or creditor who violated the law. 
If you have a question or require legal representation with respect to a consumer transaction that you entered into in the State of Wisconsin, call O'Connor Law firm at (608) 203-6349 for a free consultation.

False Advertising

The Deceptive Trade Practices Act prohibits untrue, deceptive or misleading representations in the sale of goods or services to the public. To establish a DTPA claim, the plaintiff must prove that: 1) the defendant made a representation to the public with the intent to sell goods; 2) the representation was untrue, deceptive or misleading, and 3) the representation caused the plaintiff to suffer monetary losses.
If you believe you have been subjected to false or deceptive advertising, contact O'Connor Law Firm at (608) 203-6349 for a free consultation.
