Some examples of consumer law issues include:

  • Automobile Purchases
  • Auto and Home Repair fraud
  • Wage and Account Garnishments
  • Student Loans
  • Credit Card fraud/harassment
  • Debt Collection
  • Reverse Mortgage
  • Foreclosure
  • Financial Exploitation (Elderly, Disabled & Children)
