Consumer Protection and Business Litigation
For many years, Attorney Michael Workman has been a powerful advocate for individuals and businesses victimized by unlawful and fraudulent business conduct. Michael is skilled at using strong state and federal laws and regulations to achieve justice in cases arising from breach of contract, wrongful termination, and insurance bad faith. In many cases, these laws provide recovery for triple the amount of actual losses, as well as legal fees.
An example is North Carolina’s Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Act, a consumer protection statute designed to promote ethical business practices. The Act protects consumers against inadequate warning of product safety hazards, false advertising, and a wide range of unfair and deceptive practices by financial institutions, mortgage companies, insurance companies, and many other types of businesses.
Attorney Michael Workman recently represented a client harmed by the fraudulent tax advice of KPMG, LLP, one of the nation’s largest accounting firms.
