Consumer Fraud

Everyone at one point or another is a consumer.  Consumer fraud is an extremely common problem, experienced by people from all walks of life.  Home improvement contractors, tele-marketers, insurance companies and agents, financial "advisors" and sellers of computer software and hardware are just a few of the many sellers which commonly mislead consumers.       

Fortunately, the State of New Jersey has enacted the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act, N.J.S.A. 56:8-1, et seq., which is one of the strongest consumer protection laws in the United States.  It provides treble damages and attorneys fees to successful plaintiffs, meaning that NO CASE IS TOO SMALL TO FILE.  We at the law firm of Simio, & Jones, LLP have extensive experience handling consumer fraud claims, and believe that no consumer should be the victim of fraud, even if it is for a small amount of money.

If you are a consumer and believe that you have a consumer fraud claim, please call us or e-mail us for a consultation.
