Consumer Litigation in Seattle: Helping You Get the Full Benefit of your Bargain
Diligently protecting Consumers
We all have clothes in our closet that looked and felt fine in the store but that we now seldom or never wear. As frustrating as this experience can be, it is much worse when the item that you purchased does not perform up to your expectations. The Law Firm of Kallis & Associates P.C. strives to protect consumers from harmful products, misleading advertisements and other wrongful conduct by sellers, marketers, distributors and manufacturers.
What deceptive trade practices are against the law in Washington?
Consumers always have needed protection, mainly because of their inherently unequal bargaining power and lack of knowledge about the product they are buying. Washington's deceptive trade practices law is very broad and includes both civil and criminal penalties. Either a private consumer (or group of consumers) or a government prosecutor can bring a deceptive trade practices lawsuit. The civil penalties can include both money damages and an injunction to stop the illegal activity.
What are some specific illegal practices?
When you pay for an item, you expect it to perform as advertised. If for some reason the item is substandard, you expect the seller to repair or replace it. If these reasonable expectations are not met, do not hesitate to consult a Seattle litigation attorney.
