Consumer Law Handbook Overview

The Houston Bar Association's Consumer Law Handbook contains information on resources specific to Harris County, plus information about Texas consumer law.

The handbook is in a question-and-answer format, divided into consumer law topics. All consumer law issues cannot be addressed in one handbook. But it may give you an overview of your rights and remedies.

This handbook is based on Texas law and is meant to inform you, not advise you. Talk to a lawyer about your situation.
