California Consumer Protection Law

If you find yourself targeted by companies that call you at all hours of the day, send you text messages without first receiving unambiguous permission or subject you to other forms of unwanted communication, you need to know one thing — you have legal rights and you should not be afraid to assert them to stop the unsolicited communication.

The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) provides consumers such as you with protections against unwanted contact from businesses and their affiliates. Violations of this law occur when a business contacts consumers through unsolicited means such as:

  • Telemarketing calls
  • Auto dialer/robodialer calls
  • Text messages
  • Fax messages
  • Prerecorded calls

If a company knowingly sends these messages or initiates these calls in violation of the TCPA, it can be liable for damages in the range of $500 to $1,500 for each violation. If enough violations are presented — such as through a class-action or multiparty lawsuit — the business can quickly find itself subject to millions of dollars in damages.

At Garay Law, we are equipped to represent anyone, from individuals to full classes of people, who has been a victim of a company’s TCPA violations. We can strategically align cases in a way that holds businesses accountable for their unsolicited communications and provides you with the compensation you are entitled to under the TCPA. Our lawyers have successfully recovered in excess of $200 million for clients in employment matters and consumer protection cases.
