Legal Representation In A Variety Of Consumer Advocacy Matters
Attorney Thompson’s work in consumer advocacy includes representation in matters such as:
Debt collection – You may have fallen behind on payments for a credit card, car loan or some other form of debt. You have started receiving many unwanted calls about how much you owe. These calls are often made by an automatic telephone dialing system (ATDS). An ATDS can make multiple calls multiple times a day. You’ve asked the creditor to stop these calls, but you are still receiving them. You have rights under the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and may be entitled to compensation.
Dishonest car dealers – When buying a used car, you have the right to get honest information about what you are getting. This includes the right to know if the car is in good working order, if it’s been in an accident or if it has any safety issues. If a dealer knowingly withholds information about a car before selling it to you, you can take legal action to recover damages.
Violations of the Tennessee Consumer Protection Act – Tennessee has a robust consumer protection law. It creates the framework for business owners to face both criminal charges and civil liability (in the form of private lawsuits) for engaging in business practices that are deceptive, dishonest or otherwise unfair. Some of the many prohibited behaviors listed under the TCPA include price gouging on essential goods and services in response to natural disasters, misrepresenting the quality and styles/models of one’s own products or services, and misrepresenting and disparaging the quality and styles of a competitor’s products and services,
Violations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act – Your credit score and history determine whether you have access to credit, what your interest rates will be, and can even determine whether you qualify for certain jobs or government security clearance. The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) seeks to ensure that any reports made to credit bureaus and agencies are accurate and fair. It also seeks to protect consumer privacy. Some of the protections afforded by the FCRA include the right to dispute information in your file that is inaccurate or incomplete. the right to know what your credit score is and the right to be informed that information in your file has been used against you. You are allowed to sue for compensation when an individual, business or agency has violated the FCRA, and attorney Thompson is ready to represent you in these types of claims.
Warranty disputes – This is an issue that comes up frequently with cars or passenger trucks. Auto repairs can be very expensive. You are told when you buy a car that there’s a warranty, and there’s an expectation that needed repairs will be covered while the warranty is valid. Then you are told that the warranty does not cover the repair your car needs, and you are left with the bill. Thompson Law can help.
Individuals and businesses typically deny doing anything wrong in these cases. That’s why attorney Thompson focuses on the facts. He investigates what happened. He carefully reviews all documentation and interviews witnesses. If needed, he consults experts.
