Have you been the victim of a dishonest business?


The consumer protection attorneys at Copley Roth and Davies, LLC are tired of seeing the consumer get taken advantage of, lied to and taken for their hard earned money. We have the knowledge and skill necessary to hold unscrupulous "business" people accountable and punish them for their wrongdoings. Everyday consumers are getting taken advantage of or lied to when they are purchasing goods or services yet once the consumer discovers that they have been taken, many do nothing. The consumer will often chalk it up to a deal gone bad and that they have "learned their lesson" with that company or salesman. The consumer will think, the amount of money is small and I shouldn't pursue a lawsuit against the wrongdoer. That's what the wrongdoer wants you to do. That's what keeps them in business.

At the law firm of Copley Roth and Davies, LLC. we hold the wrongdoer accountable. There are laws in place that help punish these wrongdoers and we prosecute these violations everyday. Many consumers are unaware that Kansas has enacted a very stringent law to protect consumers. Violations of the Kansas Consumer Protection Act carry with them statutory damages of up to $20,000 per violation and attorney's fees associated with prosecuting the claim. The attorneys at Copley Roth and Davies, LLC. know the law and use it to hold the bad business people accountable.

What kind of claims are actionable?


Claims filed under the Kansas Consumer Protection act must have a few things;
1. a "Consumer" a consumer means an individual, husband and wife, sole proprietor, or family partnership who seeks or acquires property or services for personal, family, household, business or agricultural purposes.

2. a "Consumer transaction" a consumer transaction means a sale, lease, assignment or other disposition for value of property or services within this state (except insurance contracts regulated under state law) to a consumer; or a solicitation by a supplier with respect to any of these dispositions.

3. a "Supplier" a supplier means a manufacturer, distributor, dealer, seller, lessor, assignor, or other person who, in the ordinary course of business, solicits, engages in or enforces consumer transactions, whether or not dealing directly with the consumer. Supplier does not include any bank, trust company or lending institution which is subject to state or federal regulation with regard to disposition of repossessed collateral by such bank, trust company or lending institution.

4. a "Deceptive act or Practice" a deceptive act or practice is a wide range or acts. Some of these are defined by the law, some are not. Some violations are very technical for example, where a right or cancellation must be placed on a door-to-door sales contract others are more straight forward. Some common examples of Deceptive acts and practices include, but are not limited to, the following, each of which is hereby declared to be a violation of the Kansas Consumer Protection act act, whether or not any consumer has in fact been misled:

A. Representations made knowingly or with reason to know that property or services have sponsorship, approval, accessories, characteristics, ingredients, uses, benefits or quantities that they do not have;

B. Representations made knowingly or with reason to know that the supplier has a sponsorship, approval, status, affiliation or connection that the supplier does not have;

C. Representations made knowingly or with reason to know that property is original or new, if such property has been deteriorated, altered, reconditioned, repossessed or is second-hand or otherwise used to an extent that is materially different from the representation;

D. Representations made knowingly or with reason to know that property or services are of particular standard, quality, grade, style or model, if they are of another which differs materially from the representation; the consumer will receive a rebate, discount or other benefit as an inducement for entering into a consumer transaction in return for giving the supplier the names of prospective consumers or otherwise helping the supplier to enter into other consumer transactions, if receipt of benefit is contingent on an event occurring after the consumer enters into the transaction; or property or services has uses, benefits or characteristics unless the supplier relied upon and possesses a reasonable basis for making such representation; or use, benefit or characteristic of property or services has been proven or otherwise substantiated unless the supplier relied upon and possesses the type and amount of proof or substantiation represented to exist;

E. The willful use, in any oral or written representation, of exaggeration, falsehood, innuendo or ambiguity as to a material fact;

F. The willful failure to state a material fact, or the willful concealment, suppression or omission of a material fact;

G. Disparaging the property, services or business of another by making, knowingly or with reason to know, false or misleading representations of material facts;

H. Offering property or services without intent to sell them;

I. Offering property or services without intent to supply reasonable, expectable public demand, unless the offer discloses the limitation;

J. Making false or misleading representations, knowingly or with reason to know, of fact concerning the reason for, existence of or amounts of price reductions, or the price in comparison to prices of competitors or one's own price at a past or future time;

K. Falsely stating, knowingly or with reason to know, that a consumer transaction involves consumer rights, remedies or obligations;

L. Falsely stating, knowingly or with reason to know, that services, replacements or repairs are needed;

M. Falsely stating, knowingly or with reason to know, the reasons for offering or supplying property or services at sale or discount prices;

N. Sending or delivering a solicitation for goods or services which could reasonably be interpreted or construed as a bill, invoice or statement of account due.

This is not a complete list of "Deceptive Acts," others apply.
