Everyone can be deceived or taken advantage of in the right circumstances. It usually happens when you least expect it. You place your trust in a storekeeper, professional, or a business only to later realize it was a mistake. The deal you thought you struck turns out to be no deal at all. You are the one left holding the bag. These mistakes not only cause you embarrassment, but also cost you your hard-earned money.
When you’ve been taken advantage of, you may not realize there is something you can do. If you were the victim of fraud, misrepresentation, or omission made by a business or a professional, the law provides you with a variety of remedies. In addition to claims like fraud or unjust enrichment DC, Virginia, and Maryland all have Consumer Protection Acts that broaden the legal remedies available to consumers. So if you’ve suffered a financial loss because of a business’s unscrupulous behavior, or the deceptive act of someone you thought was a professional, contact me to see how I can help.
