Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig: Tampa

Tampa, Florida is located in the northern portion of the Tampa Bay area and is known just as much for the amenities of a large metropolitan area, as it is for its nearby beaches. The Tampa Bay metro area encompasses three neighboring cities – Tampa, St. Petersburg and Clearwater. Residents and tourists of the Tampa Bay area enjoy the year-round sunshine while experiencing all that the city has to offer: both professional and college level sports teams, an array of museums, theme parks, the aquarium, and a zoo. Between the social scenes of downtown Tampa and St. Pete, cultural events, performing arts halls, and amazing dining and entertainment options – one will never grow bored of exploring the 18th largest metro area in the country.

Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig PLLC, an expansive law practice with 14 offices throughout the United States as well as in Canada, and the UK, is pleased to have an office in Tampa, both in order to service that part of the country and in order to inhabit and work in such an amazing part of the world. All our offices provide excellent, personalized legal service to clients ranging from individuals to small or mid-sized business owners, entrepreneurs, sovereign governments and Fortune 500 companies; Tampa is no exception.

Our conveniently located office at 612 W. Bay Street is just off of I-275, and the Selmon Expressway. Just outside of Downtown Tampa, off the lovely Bayshore Boulevard, it is easily accessible to surrounding areas of the Bay. From this location, we offer the same high-quality counsel and assistance in Florida that our practice offers worldwide. Our clients stay with us long-term because they trust us to provide them with first-rate advice and services at affordable rates.

What makes Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig PLLC unique is that our attorneys (numbering nearly 70) are fully committed to being vigorous advocates for the clients they represent, and each has specialized information. We pride ourselves on our diverse backgrounds, believing that our varied experience makes us stronger and more adept at coming up with innovative solutions. We are a veteran-owned law firm with practitioners who are, in addition to being lawyers, also business owners, MBAs, patent holders, and aerospace engineers. Each brings knowledge of other fields, along with in-depth legal understanding, to negotiations or courtroom litigations. Because we have such a large network of offices, we always have the option of conferring with our colleagues throughout the country and overseas to draw upon their areas of proficiency.

Services Available at Our Florida Office

Our Florida attorneys, who have 30 years of combined legal experience, provide a variety of legal services for the community, including the following:

Class Actions

Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig achieves substantial results for the consumers we represent and have achieved millions of dollars in settlements from the world’s largest and most powerful corporations.

DBL is a leader in consumer-protection litigation. In a world of frivolous lawsuits, the consumer rights litigation conducted by DBL stands as an example of what class actions can accomplish – meaningful change and just compensation. DBL takes cases across the full spectrum of deceptive, unfair and fraudulent business practices often used by large corporations. It is the voiceless consumers that often suffer the worst of corporate wrongdoing and have little power to hold companies responsible for their behavior.

We pursue class-action litigation to challenge fraudulent practices that individual consumers alone cannot effectively dispute.

Consumer Protection

Debt collection efforts by banks, collection agencies, and law firms can disrupt your life. Constant telephone calls at all hours, threats, and repeated demands for money that you just don’t have can make you feel harassed and abused. Debt collection can cause problems with your home life, embarrassment, and even drive you to bankruptcy. Many people don’t know that there are laws that restrict what debt collectors can and can’t do. Generally, those laws forbid debt collectors or creditors from:

• Making frequent phone calls when you’ve told them to stop or that you can’t pay them
• Collecting money that you don’t owe or collecting old “zombie” debts
• Calling at unusual or inconvenient times or places
• Calling you at work when you’ve told them to stop
• Telling friends or relatives about your debt
• Calling your cell phone without your permission
