ADT TCPA Litigation
Any person who has received calls or messages that are in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) may be able to file a lawsuit. On June 28, 2018, our TCPA lawyers filed a class action lawsuit against ADT. Girard Sharp alleges that ADT used an automatic telephone dialing system (ATDS) to repeatedly call plaintiff’s cellular phone—sometimes twice per day—despite the fact that plaintiff requested that ADT stop calling her cellular phone. These unwanted robocalls violate the TCPA. You can read a copy of the complaint by clicking here.

Investigation of ADT TCPA Violations
The TCPA protects consumers from receiving unsolicited phone calls and messages. The act prohibits telemarketers from using automatic dialing systems and prerecorded voices messages to call you without your prior consent. If you have enrolled in the national do-not-call registry, the Act prohibits telephone solicitors from calling you unless you provided prior written consent to receive such calls.
Has ADT sent you unsolicited telemarketing or debt collection calls or text messages?
Our lawyers are interested in speaking with you if you:
- Received “robocalls” from ADT when you did not consent to receive such calls. Robocalls are made using equipment or software that dials phone numbers without human intervention. Signs of robocalls include prerecorded or artificial voices, calls that result in hang-ups, or long periods of silence before a live person comes on the line.
- Received “robocalls” from ADT after asking ADT to stop calling you.
- Received unsolicited text messages from ADT.
For each unwanted call that violates the TCPA, you may be able to collect between $500 and $1,500.

Congress Passed the TCPA to Protect Consumers
Congress passed the TCPA in 1991 to protect “the tranquility and privacy of [a person’s home] … [from] intrusive and annoying interruptions.” The bill’s sponsor, Senator Ernest “Fritz” Hollings, described telemarketing calls as “the scourge of modern civilization. They wake us up in the morning; they interrupt our dinner at night; they force the sick and elderly out of bed; they hound us until we want to rip the telephone right out of the wall … These calls are a nuisance and an invasion of our privacy.” The TCPA gives consumers the right to sue for any violations of the law involving automatic dialers, unsolicited cell phone calls, prerecorded messages, and do-not-call lists.
Billions of Robocalls Every Month
Robocalls are phone calls that use a computerized autodialer to deliver a pre-recorded message. Billions of robocalls are placed each month, affecting hundreds of millions of consumers.

We suggest that you write down the date and time of the call as well as a brief description of the conversation that took place or the pre-recorded message.
- If you received unwanted calls or messages on your cell phone, please save the call logs, text messages, and your cell phone bills.
