The Grubb Law Group - Charleston WV Consumer Fraud Attorneys

If you were deceived or misled during a consumer transaction, or were not told important facts about a product, or purchased defective products, or have paid for services that failed to perform as promised, West Virginia consumer protection law might give you the right to recover damages from the seller or manufacturer. Contact a West Virginia consumer fraud lawyer at the Grubb Law Group in Charleston, and find out about your rights.

Charleston consumer protection attorney David Grubb has served as the Director of West Virginia's Consumer Protection Office, and founded the West Virginia-Citizen Action Group (the Mountain State's leading consumer advocacy organization). Early in his career, David also worked for nationally-recognized consumer advocate Ralph Nader. His comprehensive knowledge of the state and federal laws and regulations that protect your interests as a consumer can make the decisive difference in your claim for fraud, deceptive trade practices, or breach of warranty.

We can help determine if you have a claim for damages relating to consumer fraud scenarios such as the following:

  • Purchase of previously-wrecked or flood-damaged automobiles
  • Undisclosed defects in the purchase of a house or mobile home
  • Deceptive or misleading advertisements in the sale of consumer goods or services;
  • Failure to disclose important facts about a consumer product, such as a vehicle's prior history as a rental vehicle or lemon buyback vehicle;
  • False or misleading representations about the condition or quality of consumer goods;
  • Mislabeled consumer goods, such as designer clothing or jewelry; and
  • Failure to perform contracted services as agreed

Our experienced consumer fraud attorneys will listen closely to your story - in many cases, we will already have dealt with the fraudulent conduct or business involved in your claim. Where a great enough number of West Virginians are affected by a particular unfair or deceptive practice, you may have the option of filing a class action lawsuit that not only can recover damages in your case, but protect everyone else in the state from the same unlawful conduct.

West Virginia has a comprehensive consumer protection law – the West Virginia Consumer Credit and Protection Act – that prohibits businesses from committing unfair or deceptive acts in consumer transactions. This law is a powerful weapon for consumers who have been the victims of abusive and fraudulent practices.

Importantly, both state and federal consumer protection laws provide for an award of attorney's fees if the lawsuit is successful. That means that our fees will not need to come out of your damages award.
