In Washington, the law provides a measure of protection to consumers against unethical providers of goods and services through RCW Chapter 19.86 (review the consumer law here). The Consumer Protection Act, as codified, provides for a private cause of action by setting forth consumer rights with regards to transactions having to do with credit cards, debt collection, mortgages and loans, car sales, and the sale of products. Consumers with complaints against businesses and service providers cannot always get relief by seeking help from the Attorney General’s office. The Attorney General (read more about the Washington AG) does engage in a “plaintiff practice” against offending businesses that swindle or cheat consumers in an effort to stop unfair and deceptive acts and practices by businesses in Washington. But the AG’s office cannot help every resident of Spokane who is taken advantage of. Every consumer who has been treated unfairly needs an advocate. The Green Law Office, PLLC wants to be your advocate.
