The Blanch Law Firm understands that charges arising out of false advertising relate to language as much as to law. Our attorneys are equally adept at communications and legalities. They are among the most articulate advocates within the criminal defense community, and know how to make good use of statements for obtaining an outcome favorable to the client in the context of false advertising.
False advertising means knowingly promoting sales-or seeking to increase consumption of products-by making statements that are misleading through any advertisement that is published and addressed to the general public.
But The Blanch Law Firm can lead you out of the prosecutorial thicket. Our attorneys have mounted successful defenses against charges of false advertising by establishing that client statements were not knowingly false or made in reckless disregard of their truth or falsity.
Nowadays, all government agencies-including law enforcement-promote consumer protections. More than ever before, they are enforcing laws to protect against false claims made be advertisers. Consequently, prosecutors may seek to add counts based on violation of:
Consumer Protection Acts
Auto Sales Regulations (Lemon Laws)
Home Mortgage Disclosure Act of 1975
Better Business Bureau Guidelines
Business fraud prevention mandates
The Truth in Lending Act
The Blanch Law Firm recognizes that laws designed to protect the public against false advertising can also be made to work for advertisers. By viewing facts from every available angle, our attorneys can establish that you reasonably believed your advertising to be true. Our attorneys are adept at showing that statements made by clients to promote sales were not knowingly false or in reckless disregard of their truth or falsity.
