Consumer Protection

Attorney Marcus Barnett began his legal career in the Consumer Protection Division of the Florida Attorney General’s office, in 1988.  Ever since then, almost without interruption, he has been fighting for the rights of individuals and groups victimized by unfair and deceptive trade practices. He is a dedicated champion of the underdog, and knows this field of law as perhaps few do. It is easy to become the victim of a scam or sham business. Especially today, with so much e-commerce, we can literally be at the mercy of people who will do anything and say anything to get our money. At the same time, many long established businesses habitually cut corners, violate rights, and count on people being powerless to fight.  You work hard for your money, and have the right to expect a business to keep its promises, and obey the law.

Florida law, particularly Chapter 501 prohibits unfair and deceptive trade practices.  There are also numerous federal laws that apply to everyday transactions. Often times it is possible to recover attorney fees and, in some cases, treble damages (three times the amount of your loss).  Marcus Barnett is an experienced for you.  Level the playing field by having us on your side.  Contact us now for a free consultation. We are available 24/7/365.
