Consumer Law and Practice will serve as a resource for you in representing clients damaged by fraud and deceptive trade practices. The book begins with a well-organized chapter that serves as a veritable checklist of the possible causes of action in a consumer case. Successive chapters focus particular types of consumer fraud, including sales related to vehicles and homes, debt collection, payday loans, credit reporting issues, identity theft, and investments and securities. Since many consumer contracts include a provision regarding arbitration, there is also a chapter discussing how to navigate that process and avoid common pitfalls. Of particular note is the chapter on attorneys fees in consumer cases - helping you get paid -- including a list of fee-shifting statutes, coverage of pleading and proof of fees, and two sample fee agreements.
