The Florida Bar’s Consumer Protection Law Committee has appointed Janelle A. Weber, founder of Manta Law, as Chair of the Outreach Subcommitee.
In this role, Ms. Weber will manage the Consumer Protection Law Committee’s Twitter account.
The purpose of the Consumer Protection Law Committee is to “educate consumers and Bar members about consumer protection laws and current issues through such means as public outreach events, public service messages, CLE programs, consumer publications, non-partisan technical assistance memoranda on proposed legislation, and providing expert resources to The Florida Bar, the Judiciary, and the Legislature.”
The committee meets on several occasions throughout the year, including at the Florida Bar Annual Convention. The fall meeting will be held in Tampa in October.
“I am honored to serve on the Consumer Protection Law Committee,” Ms. Weber said. “I’m excited to work with my colleagues on the issues that are so important to consumers throughout our State.”
A primary focus of Ms. Weber’s practice is representing consumers in lawsuits against creditors and debt collectors for debt collection harassment, unauthorized robocalls, and credit report errors. Manta Law pursues claims for violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (“FDCPA”), Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act (“FCCPA”), Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”), and Fair Credit Reporting Act (“FCRA”).
Previously, Ms. Weber, a former journalist, served on the Florida Bar’s Media and Communications Law Committee.
Manta Law is a Tampa law firm focusing on consumer law, commercial litigation, and family law appeals. The firm serves Tampa Bay, Carrollwood, Wesley Chapel, Palm Harbor, Oldmsar, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Safety Harbor, Largo, New Port Richey, and the greater Tampa Bay region.
