Waiting can hurt your case. If you are a consumer that has been sued, you have to respond properly by the court’s deadline. If you don’t, you can lose the case right away, even without a trial, and may have your bank accounts, wages and property seized. If you are a consumer who has been victimized by a credit card company, car dealer, bank or other financial institution, credit reporting agency, car company, the at-fault driver, or anyone else, the law requires you to file your lawsuit before the statute of limitations expires. If you wait too long, you can lose your right to obtain justice in court, and to recover compensation for the losses you have suffered. We make it easy for you to contact us, and we never charge for the initial consultation. You can call our office or toll-free numbers, fax us your information, or send us an email. When you retain us, we will act quickly to gather the most important evidence to support your claims or defenses, and will aggressively protect your consumer rights. If you need an experienced consumer protection lawyer, contact us today at 407-647-7887 or 877-647-7887 for your consultation.  In personal injury and wrongful death matters, we accept cases throughout the State of Florida.
