Robocalls / Telephone Consumer Protection Act

Have you been harassed by a debt collector?  Barraged with text messages from an unknown advertiser?  Are you tired of being contacted by companies you do not know and to whom you never provided consent to contact you?  If the answer to any of these questions is yes, we can help. 

According to the Federal Communications Commission, unwanted “robocalls” are consistently among the top problems consumers cite when filing complaints.  More than 1 in 10 U.S. adults has fallen victim to telephone scams.  Unsolicited text messages and facsimile transmissions also invade our privacy and clog important lines of communication.    

In an effort to curb the growing number of telemarketing calls, in 1991 Congress enacted the

Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).  The TCPA regulates, among other things, the use of automatic telephone dialing systems to make calls and send text messages. Under the TCPA, a company that makes robocalls or sends unsolicited text messages for a marketing purpose, without first obtaining the recipient’s express written consent, may be liable for $500 to $1,500 per call or message.  These penalties may also apply to the sending of facsimile transmissions in violation of the statute.

At Glancy Prongay & Murray we are experts at pursuing companies that violate the TCPA.  If you have received robocalls, text messages or facsimile transmissions to which you did not consent, contact us for a free and confidential case review and let us help you put an end the harassment.

Court Recognition

“And without question, the Court is of the opinion that the value of benefit that’s been conferred to the class is extremely sizable and that this Court is certainly aware that the skill and efficiency of plaintiff’s counsel is what attributed to this settlement, and they are learned securities counsel. The Court is mindful of that, and as a result they were able to sort of weed their way through the complex issues in this case, and also to bring this about — bring about a settlement rather in short order as these matters go. So the Court certainly attributes that to counsel’s skill and efficiency, as well as the ability to work with the adversaries in this matter.”

–Hon. Susan D. Wigention, U.S. District Judge, District of New Jersey

“Class Counsel has conducted the litigation and achieved the Settlement in good faith and with skill, perseverance and diligent advocacy”

— Hon. Donovan W. Frank, U.S. District Judge, District of Minnesota

“The court finds that the Settlement Fund… created by Class Counsel is an exceptional result… The settlement is significantly above the average securities class action settlement when measured as a percentage of losses recovered… The court finds that Class Counsel, particularly Co-Lead Counsel, exerted tremendous effort on behalf of the class in the prosecution of this action… The Court finds that Class Counsel skillfully prosecuted this action, particularly given that this case was unusually complex relative to most securities fraud class actions. ”

–Hon. Dickran M. Tevrizian (Ret.), U.S. District Court Judge, Central District of California
