Consumer Fraud

Too often, consumers suffer the consequences of corporate greed. Unscrupulous businesses take advantage of their customers by engaging in false advertising, predatory lending practices, and manufacture of defective products. Both state and federal law provide protection to consumers who have been the victim of the following types of activities:

  • False or misleading advertising
  • Hidden fees
  • Dangerous and defective products
  • Sensitive data breaches
  • Breach of warranty
  • Predatory lending practices
  • Auto sale fraud
  • Predatory mortgage lending

At the Kendall Law Firm, we stand by our clients as fellow consumers. We understand that being deceived by a business leaves you feeling betrayed and vulnerable. That is why we have built a practice devoted to helping hard-working people fight back against deceitful corporations.

Financial Fraud

In the digital age, information has become a commodity. Identity thieves buy and sell sensitive data such as social security numbers, bank account information, and credit card numbers. Besides the sense of violation that accompanies having your personal information stolen, identity theft can also lead to bad credit and a damaged reputation. Even worse, because these thieves are difficult to track down, local law enforcement is usually unable to pinpoint the source or location of the crime.

In many cases, negligence on the part of a third party led to the security breach. Retailers, credit card companies, and financial institution fail to protect customer information. Companies neglect to properly monitor employees with access to sensitive data. If you have been the victim of financial fraud, the attorneys at Kendall Law Firm may be able to help you take back control of your financial well-being.

Elder Fraud

As the baby boomer generation ages, elder fraud is on the rise. It is a sad fact that certain individuals and businesses specifically target seniors in a variety of fraudulent schemes. There are many reasons why the elderly are an ideal target for thieves. They have likely spent years amassing considerable wealth and resources. A combination of poor health and weakened reasoning ability make them more inclined to go along with suggestions. They are also less likely to be familiar with modern technology, such as mobile banking, email, and digital security.

In some cases, trusted caretakers take advantage of an elderly person by persuading him or her to hand over control of important finances, such as bank accounts and insurance proceeds. In other situations, loved ones and even adult children pressure older adults to sign powers of attorney that give the other person the right to change life insurance beneficiaries and tamper with financial documents. Seniors are also vulnerable to predatory lending practices, credit card fraud, and reverse mortgage schemes.

The lawyers at Kendall Law Firm treat seniors and their families with the respect and compassion they deserve. We are committed to helping older generations preserve what they have worked a lifetime to build.
