New Braunfels Attorney For Deceptive Trade Practices Serving The Tri-County Area

Texas is somewhat unique in that consumers and businesses benefit from the Deceptive Trade Practices Act (DTPA). The act allows for legal recourse in the event of a fraudulent transaction.

As succinctly put by FindLaw, "The underlying purpose of this Act is to protect consumers against false, misleading and deceptive business practices, unconscionable actions, and breaches of warranty and to provide efficient and economical procedures to secure such protection."*

If you believe you were defrauded in a transaction in or around New Braunfels, our attorney and team are here for you.

We, at Jones Sullivan PLLC, are prepared to put our years of experience to work to help you recover all damages to which you may be entitled under the act. This may include:

  • Damaging work done by a real estate professional, contractor or similar actor
  • Misleading advertising/false representation
  • Someone taking advantage of your lack of knowledge
  • Exaggerating the benefits of a product
  • Lying about needed replacements or repairs
  • Making false allegations about a competitor

It is important to recognize that the act is broadly interpreted. Qualification as a "consumer" is not necessarily as straightforward as it sounds. Additionally, sometimes people will bring a DTPA suit frivolously in order to obtain money. In these cases, it is necessary to respond appropriately as well. We encourage you to take decisive action to protect your rights, regardless of your issues.
