Deceptive Trade Practices


The Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act

The Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act (“DTPA”) is the primary consumer protection law in the State of Texas. The Texas DTPA statute protects consumers from false and misleading trade practices. Consumers must send a demand letter before pursuing a DTPA claim. The statute provides for attorneys’ fees and three times damages if the defendant acted knowingly. There are various “tie-in” statutes that allow for consumers to sue under those statutes. Dunnam & Dunnam lawyers have extensive experience in DTPA claims.

Some consumer protection laws include the following:
Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act Statute
Business Opportunity Act
Health Spa Act
Telephone Solicitation Act
Regulation of Telephone Solicitation Act
Texas Insurance Code
Texas Debt Collection Act
Fair Debt Collection Practices Act
Texas Lemon Law
