Undertake not what you cannot perform but be careful to keep your promise.

Benjamin Franklin

Creditors have better memories than debtors

William Shakespeare, Hamlet.

Neither a borrower nor a lender be; for loan doth oft lose both itself and friend, and borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry.

Adam

It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest.

Deceptive Trade Practices Act (DTPA)

Texas state law has afforded an extra level of protection for Texas consumers of goods and products. Sellers and providers of such goods and services are held to a higher standard of behavior in their interactions with their customers and clients. Wronged customers can sue the seller/provider for breaching the contract and for violation of the DTPA. Special remedies are afforded such as making the wronged customer whole and granting him a special statutory penalty award, which amounts to three times the amount of money actually lost by the customer.

Banned deceptive practices range in nature. Some examples are: forbidding a seller of goods from lying about the make or quality of a product; forbidding a mechanic from exaggerating the needed repairs and their costs; forbidding a mortgage company from adding multiple fees not originally disclosed to the client mortgagee. Many more deceptive trade practices are prohibited. If you are a customer or client of a business that has wronged you in some manner, you should immediately contact us for an appointment to discuss the potential violation committed.
