Consumer Credit

Consumer credit laws protect consumers from unfair credit practices and provide guidelines for the credit industry. A common form of consumer credit is a credit card account issued by a financial institution.

Food and Drug Law

Regulations of the Food and Drug Administration are intended to ensure the safety of food, drugs and medical devices.

Fair Debt Collection Practices Act

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act provides debtors with a way to challenge payoff demands and determine the validity and accuracy of asserted debts. Congress enacted the act to stop abusive, deceptive and unfair debt-collection practices.
