Experienced Legal Representation In Individual Disputes
Individual disputes can take many forms. Consumer advocates have fought hard for legislation at the state and federal levels to protect individuals from harm due to unscrupulous practices. Lemon laws protect people from deception in purchase of automobiles. Fair debt collection laws regulate the conduct of collection agencies, and consumer lending acts require complete disclosure of the costs of a loan or the financing of a large purchase before you become obligated to repay it. The Jaffe Law Firm handles all of these cases and more.
