About the Program
Learn how to boost your practice by representing consumers. Many consumer protection laws provide that businesses are responsible to pay a consumers' attorneys' fees if they prevail in a dispute involving a consumer transaction. Attendees will learn how to identify claims and how to effectively represent consumers.

You Will Learn

  •  How to identify and bring claims on behalf of consumers under state and federal fee shifting statutes
  • How to economically and profitably defend consumers in debt collection and foreclosure actions
  • How to identify fee-shifting claims under the Home Improvement Act, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, and the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act when defending consumer collection actions

Who Should Attend
Solo and small firm attorneys who are interested in learning more about representing consumers to grow their practices.
