Consumer Fraud

Consumers have the right to be protected against the marketing and manufacturing of products and services that are harmful to health and life.  In choosing products and services consumers have the right to accurate information to make informed choices, and to be protected against fraudulent and misleading information, advertising, labeling and other practices.    When those rights are violated, consumers have the right to redress to have the problems corrected and to receive compensation.  Gancedo Law Firm understands what it takes to define corporate encroachment of consumer rights and has the experience to defend claimants when those rights are infringed.

Hector Gancedo of Gancedo Law Firm has vast experience in prosecuting a variety of class actions involving consumer claims and unfair business practices.  He has represented plaintiffs against national banks, telephone companies, insurance companies, retailers, cemeteries, entertainment conglomerates, publishing houses, electronics manufacturers, and others.  Mr. Gancedo has decades of experience in class action litigation, and has served as lead counsel and as a member of managing plaintiffs committees on numerous occasions.  Examples of his efforts include:
