Have you or someone you love been affected as a result of misleading or false advertising? Have you been hurt as a result of a defective or unsafe product? It’s common to feel angry, hopeless, and frustrated. Fortunately, there are laws that have been developed specifically to protect consumers from misleading advertising.
Aside from federal Consumer Protection Laws, there are several state-specific regulations that restrict companies and private retailers from making misleading, false, or deceptive claims about their products or services to customers.

We are prepared to defend those rights, and our experienced lawyers are dedicated to ensuring that both businesses and individual retailers sell their products and services to customers in accordance with federal and state laws and industry regulations.
The most common false advertising practices include but aren’t limited to:
Product and service retailers may not misrepresent the origin of their products or the origin of the ingredients used to make their products.
Retailers may not misrepresent the quality of a service or product or falsely advertise inaccurate characteristics of the service or product.
Product sellers may not put items up for sale within their retail space, either online or in a brick-and-mortar store without the intent to sell the item. Items for sale must actually be purchasable by a customer.
Product and service retailers may not falsely advertise a promotion or discount by misrepresenting the terms and conditions of the promotion. Full disclosure of the promotion limitations and conditions is required.
Consumers in Massachusetts and New Hampshire are protected from the above deceptive market practices under federal and state regulations. You may be entitled to compensation if you believe you or a family member were harmed by deceptive or misleading marketing that resulted in financial loss or other damages relating to the price, nature, or function of a product or service.
