The Telephone Consumer Protection Act was created in 1991 for the purpose of protecting customers from spam telephone calls and “robocalls” involving using equipment that dialed random numbers in sequences to people who did not consent to such calls. Due to the difficult nature of filing these claims, many consumers and businesses now seek attorneys to assist with this issue and companies who have engaged in this behavior have been involved in settlements that have exceeded $10 million as each infraction ranges from $500 to $1,500. In addition, the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) has recently expanded the TCPA to include text messages and automated calls further multiplying the damages companies can be on the hook for. Failing to comply with all the regulations (Federal, State, FCC, TCPA requirements) that continue to change and expand, can leave companies open to not only fines, but investigations, class action lawsuits, and plenty of negative public attention.
The TCPA is so encompassing that industries that rely on any forms of those communications mentioned above, can now be targeted and sued for TCPA violations. From retail and hospitality to even healthcare, many industries are no longer safe from engaging in communications such as these. Marketing companies can now also be targeted for these violations if they violate advertising rules that mention only the product and not the producer of it.
Our mission is to assist clients in navigating the many regulations and legal requirements brought forth by the TCPA so that your business can legally correspond with customers without fearing repercussions. Furthermore, clients who are facing these issues can count on our courtroom experience and advocacy skills to resolve and defend you from these problems. With the many exceptions and specificity surrounding the TCPA, you can trust that our counsel is experienced and detailed enough to navigate these cloudy waters for you.
We continue to research and evaluate the most recent information regarding the TCPA and formulate strategies to consistently resolve cases before they reach the courtroom. We can also defend our clients in the face of investigation no matter who may be investigating them. We urge any and all companies who are dealing with or who fear they may be dealt with TCPA violations to reach out to us and allow us to help you stay compliant with all requirements and regulations. Let us put our team to work for you.
