Fraud / Deceptive Practices

Sometimes business relationships are initiated under false pretenses or fraud and are committed with the intent to induce a person or business to enter into a contract or business relationship. In such cases this allows the affected party to void an unfair deal, or, in certain circumstances, to recover additional monetary damages for the fraudulent conduct exhibited by the wrongdoer. At The Law Office of Stephen O’Rear, P.C. we have represented business and individuals that have been the victims of fraud or deceptive practices in their business dealings.

While most cases involving fraud or deceptive practices are only handled under a retainer agreement with an hourly billable fee, there are instances where the firm will work with our clients on an alternative fee basis. Under certain facts and circumstances, the firm may handle your fraud or deceptive practices claim on a contingency fee basis, which means that our clients are only obligated to pay a fee if the firm successfully resolves the litigation in the client’s favor. In other circumstances, the firm can work with our clients by providing representation at a reduced hourly billing rate along with a reduced contingency fee arrangement, which allows the firm’s clients the flexibility they may need in order to be able to assert their claims in court. It is the goal of The Law Office of Stephen O’Rear, P.C. to provide our clients with the right fee arrangement that gives our clients the greatest flexibility depending on the type of dispute they are involved in.

Under Texas law there is a limitation on the amount of time to file a lawsuit if you have been defrauded or an individual or company has committed deceptive acts or trade practices in connection with their business dealings with you, so call today for a free consultation to discuss your rights.
