Companies Have No Right To Mislead Consumers Through Fraudulent Practices

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.

At The Grubb Law Group, we have considerable experience successfully handling a variety of consumer protection cases. Founding attorney David L. Grubb has served as the director of the West Virginia 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 Are Here To Listen And Help

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.
