  Consumer Law: An Overview

The Justinian Society of Philadelphia will present the CLE luncheon "Consumer Law: An Overview" with Robert P. Cocco, Esquire of The Law Offices of Robert P. Cocco on April 29th at Dilworth Paxson, 1500 Market Street, Suite 3500E.


Americans are the most prodigious consumers in the world, but have little or no awareness of the laws that protect them in the many important consumer transactions they commonly enter into. This CLE will survey the primary federal and Pennsylvania consumer statutes that offer consumers protection from various abuses by creditors, debt collectors, credit reporting agencies, and car dealers. Topics will include Fair Credit Reporting Act, etc.

Robert P. Cocco, Principal, ROBERT P. COCCO, P.C.

Engaged in the practice of law in Philadelphia for almost 20 years, half of which has been concentrated in the areas of Consumer Law including Truth in Lending, FDCPA, Auto Fraud and FCRA litigation in the Federal District Court, state courts, and Bankruptcy Courts of the Eastern District. Represented hundreds of consumer debtors, including litigation of cases in both the state and federal Judiciary, which cases include published opinions on the results of such efforts including:

• McMaster v. CIT Group/Consumer Fin., Inc., 2006 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 28831 (E.D. Pa. 2006)
• Johnson v. Chase Manhattan Bank, 2007 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 50569 (E.D. Pa. 2007).

Presenter and panel member numerous times at seminars on consumer law issues for the Pennsylvania Bar Institute and the National Business Institute. Received in 2008 a Community Leadership Award sponsored by Sen. Shirley Kitchen of the Pennsylvania State Senate to recognize my legal representation of Philadelphia residents victimized in abusive consumer transactions.

Check in and lunch begin at 12:00 p.m. and the program begins at 12:30 p.m. The cost is $25.00 for members of The Justinian Society, and $35.00 for non-members.
