Upholding Consumer Protection Legislation on Your Behalf

Many different laws prohibit lenders, debt collectors, and other organizations from abusing consumers in various ways.

Here are just a few examples of the consumer protection laws our attorneys use to achieve favorable resolutions for our clients:

What Is the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act?

The FDCPA prohibits a debt collector from utilizing unfair, deceptive, or abusive collection tactics.

For example, they cannot:

  • Use profane or obscene language
  • Threaten you with violence
  • Or pretend to be government officials

What Is the Washington State Consumer Protection Act?

This legislation prohibits unfair or deceptive trade and commerce tactics. The goal of this act is to ensure the people of Washington have access to a fair, nondeceptive, and competitive marketplace (see RCW 19.86).

What Is the Equal Credit Opportunity Act?

Under this act, creditors cannot discriminate against credit applicants based on certain protected classes (e.g. race, color, religion, nationality, sex, marital status, or age).

A credit application denial is also considered discrimination if it fails to state the specific reasons for the denial without giving the proper notice.

This also applies to a change in the terms of an existing credit arrangement, or a refusal to grant credit in substantially the amount or on substantially the terms requested. (see 15 U.S.C. 1691).
