CONSUMER LAW ATTORNEYS IN ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI AND SOUTHERN ILLINOIS

The attorneys at Keane Law LLC have extensive litigation experience with cases involving unfair or deceptive practices perpetrated against consumers.

Consumer Class Action Attorneys

Generally speaking, if a company makes false representations to get a customer to buy its product, that is against the law. The problem is that many consumer products are not that expensive—it is not worth going to court and paying legal fees over a single product that costs tens, or even thousands of dollars. That’s where a class action attorney comes in. By aggregating (putting together) the claims of all the consumers who purchased these products, the company guilty of consumer fraud can be held to task. Keane Law LLC has the knowledge and experience to assess whether your unfair and deceptive practices case could potentially turn into a class action. With our help, you may be able to hold the perpetrator accountable on behalf of all others it has cheated—even if your individual claim is only worth a few cents or dollars.

Unfair and Deceptive Practices Lawsuits

Of course, some unfair and deceptive practices claims can cause much more significant harm—tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars of damages. For example, a company that engages in deceptive practices in connection with the sale of a home or in providing a mortgage. Unfair and deceptive practices related to these large transactions can be devastating. Similarly, medical drug and device companies may engage in deceptive conduct which can result in severe personal injury. In these cases, consumers would be well advised to retain counsel experienced in the area of unfair and deceptive practices litigation.
