Unfair Business Practices

California Unfair Business Practices Attorneys

Inland Empire, San Diego and Los Angeles Unfair Competition Lawyers

Businesses and consumers should not have to run a background check on every company with which they do business. Unfortunately, both small and large companies damage consumers by overcharging for services and hiding costs in common contracts such as mortgages, banking agreements and credit card agreements.

If you believe you are the victim of unfair business practices/unfair competition, contact Backstrom & Heinrichs, in San Diego, California. We may be able to help you form a class action of consumers who were similarly victimized or handle your case individually.

What Is an Unfair Business Practice?

The term “unfair business practice” encompasses a wide range of unlawful, deceptive or otherwise fraudulent business practices, including:

  • Overcharging for services
  • Hidden fees and false charges
  • False advertising
  • Improper business practices
  • Mortgage fraud
  • Bank fraud
  • Contractual fraud/unlawful contract agreements
  • Deceptive trade practices

Under California’s Unfair Competition Law (UCL), there are civil penalties (financial penalties) for businesses who engage in the above practices, as well as other unfair competition practices.

“Mr. Heinrichs is truly the most caring attorney I have ever met. After calling for an initial consult and leaving a message, my call was returned with in 30 minutes. He listened to me with out making me feel like a dollar sign and agreed to take on my case. I never had a problem communicating with him. He explained the process and informed me of every next step. I always knew what to expect and what time frame I was looking at. He worked hard on my case and I was happy with the outcome.” Amy L. Lakeside, CA _____________________
“This is the second time I employed the service of this firm and I got a very positive outcome from my labor issue. Mr. Heinrichs is very understanding and professional and his negotiation skills are very effective in lending a voice to any employee that has to face a well defended and lawyered up corporation. I also recommended him to a friend of mine a couple of years back and he was able to also get a decent severance package for that person.”

“Ward Heinrichs was very effective in helping me resolve my labor issues with my company. He advised me on settlements and we received the desired outcome very quickly. He also ran through various options on his fees and let me chose the one that worked for me. He is a pleasant and professional attorney and I recommend him highly.” L R. San Diego, CA _____________________
“My name is Jeffrey Walters and I was the lead class representative in a case against Pacific Eagle International Security, Inc., a company that provided armed security guard services for the U.S. Navy. During our case, Ward Heinrichs always responded to my phone calls and many e-mails regarding the many problems we all faced with this case. We worked closely together to prove that California wage law applied to Pacific Eagle, even though the class of security guards worked on property controlled by the Navy. Pacific Eagle believed that only federal wage law applied to it. Without Mr. Heinrichs’ unwavering persistence and total command of the difficult issues in the case, we probably would never have received the money Pacific Eagle owed us. Mr. Heinrichs presented the case through facts obtained through vigorous research. After two years of litigation, Pacific Eagle finally agreed to pay $900,000.00 to settle the class action for unpaid wages, un-reimbursed expenses, penalties, etc. I received $15,000.00 for being one of the class representatives in addition to my share of the money that Pacific Eagle owed me and my fellow security guards. I am very grateful for the hard work and commitment.”

“Ward Heinrichs is professional and knows employment law. He is personable, always answers his phone and was available anytime I called. As a person in transition for the very first time in 25 years, he has helped me move forward without any regrets. I would recommend Mr. Heinrichs for any employment related dispute.”
