Fighting Robocalls under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act

If you get annoying telephone calls on your cell phone – not even from a human being – but from a machine – we’ve got news for you. This might be illegal. You may be able to sue the annoying companies that invade your privacy, interrupt your intimate moments, and irritate you and your family.

Calls which are covered by this law include robocalls, autodialed calls or automated text messages to your cell phone.

If you don’t consent to receiving robocalls, autodialed calls or automated text messages and get them anyway, call us at Lakelaw right away. We can sue to stop robocalls. We can sue to recover damages and attorneys’ fees.
