Holding Other Businesses Accountable for Deceptive Practices
From Dwaine’s interview for the Masters of the Courtroom series on ReelLawyers.com.
When you are trying to expand and retain your client base in Houston, it’s vital to offer high-quality products at a competitive rate. Business owners who rely on others to manufacture or provide merchandise can be in a delicate position when they receive poorly-designed goods. If you entered a contract with another business that failed to fulfill the terms of your agreement, you can use the law to hold those responsible accountable.
The Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act (DTPA) is Texas’ primary consumer protection law. It was established to provide some protection for consumers from fraudulent or deceptive businesses. The DTPA applies not only to citizens who are consumers but also to businesses with assets of less than $25 million.
Although many lawyers have heard of the DTPA, not many have successfully handled DTPA cases and fewer still have successfully tried them. At Massey Law Firm, our legal team has the business litigation experience to defend your interests in court. Dwaine Massey, our founding partner, has litigated suits for over 20 years. He has received peer and client commendations for his uncompromising integrity and impressive results.
