Consumer Protection Law

Every time we Massachusetts consumers make a purchase, we do so believing that we will get what we have paid for.  Unfortunately, whether Holyoke, Worcester, Brockton, or Boston, we know this is not always the case. It is all too common for businesses to take advantage of Massachusetts consumers through deceptive, unfair, or other bad faith practices and consumers victimized by these practices can sustain serious financial damage.  If you have reason to believe that you have been treated unfairly or in a deceptive manner by a business or seller, it is crucial to speak to Attorney Shivick about your situation. An example of a small unfair/deceptive practice is an illegal lease clause included in a tenant’s lease, regardless of whether it was enforced. This type of technical violation of c.93A can give rise to “nominal” damages of $25 plus attorney’s fees, alone. More substantial breaches of the Statute may give rise to the double or triple damages provision of c.93A. Each case is unique in this regard, but in today’s Commonwealth we need these consumer protection laws more than ever and this firm enjoys evening the odds on behalf of Massachusetts consumers now more than ever.
