Unfair Business Practices Lawyers in Chicago
Standing Up for Consumer Rights
State and federal laws regulating the relationship between businesses and consumers govern companies large and small. Most businesses adhere to the laws and to generally recognized ethical practices. However, some companies engage in behaviors that harm the rights of consumers.
If you feel that you are the victim of unfair or fraudulent business practices, Edelman Combs Latturner & Goodwin, LLC is here to help. Since 1985, we have recovered millions of dollars on behalf of consumers in Illinois and across the country in consumer class actions of all types. We work exclusively for consumers, not for business interests.
