Use the District of Columbia Consumer Protection Act When You Feel You Were Treated Unfairly In Any Consumer Transaction.

The District of Columbia has a very broad and comprehensive statute permitting recovery by consumers for every consumer transaction including leases and other real estate transactions. A consumer is defined as any person who purchases leases or receives consumer goods or services including mortgages or other debts. The goods and services covered by the Consumer Protection Act include "any and all parts of the economic output of society at any stage or related or necessary point in the economic process". This includes consumer credit, franchises, real estate transactions and consumer services "of all types". Any time there is any act which does create or would create, alter, repair, furnish, make available, provide information about, directly or indirectly, solicit or offer a consumer good for sale, lease or transfer, there is a potential for using the consumer protection act if you have been treated unfairly.

If you, a family member or someone you love has been treated unfairly please contact the Consumer Fraud attorneys at the law firm of Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata & Siegel, P.C. for a free consultation.
