What is ADT Inc.?
ADT Inc. (formerly known as “The ADT Corporation”) is an American commercial/residential security service headquartered in Boca Raton, Florida. ADT became an independent public company in 2012 and has been accredited by the Better Business Bureau (BBB) since 2013.
ADT has received thousands of complaints via the Better Business Bureau (BBB) in the past three years, consisting of product/service problems, billing problems, and advertising/sales problems in that order.

Can’t Cancel Your Contract?
There is a pattern of consumers reporting difficulty in terminating their contracts with ADT either within or beyond the contracts’ minimum lengths. Complaints also consist of trouble reaching out to customer service, as ADT doesn’t accept consumer complaints via email; no-show technicians for scheduled service calls; and problems with third parties and dealers of ADT. For example, in 2018, ADT violated the Kansas Consumer Protection Act (KCPA) in Sedgwick County, Kansas, by working with an unlicensed contractor, EVO Alarm LLC, in that jurisdiction.
Unfortunately, these complaints are just the beginning for ADT. Between customer service issues, contract issues, and defective products, customers are left wondering what options they have regarding their consumer rights.
We Fix Complaints When Customer Service Won’t
Has ADT used misleading sales tactics? Have you received poor service? Do you have complaints with billing? Do you want customer service at ADT to listen?
If your complaints haven’t been heard, we can help. At Mike Agruss Law we help customers who have been mistreated by big companies and we turn your complaints into resolutions. We’ll not only file your legal demands with ADT, we’ll negotiate with the company. If your claim isn’t resolved through these negotiations, we’ll work through the legal process that is outlined in your ADT contract, which is typically arbitration.
Mike Agruss Law gets results — including zero balances, refunds, and other compensation.
Here’s How to Make Big Companies Listen
It can be frustrating when you rely on a service and don’t get the results you’ve paid for. Big companies make mistakes every day and not only is it their fault, but it can cost you money and time and leave you with big headaches.
Have you tried calling ADT to address an issue, only to be told that the representative has no authority to do so? Or maybe you’ve tried talking to someone higher up in the company, only to be ignored, dismissed, or they take too long, continuing to waste your precious time. Maybe you’ve sent an email to the company which only resulted in a prefabricated response or they never follow through with what they’ve promised.
When you’re limited in your choices for service providers or you’re locked into a contract, what can you do?
Fortunately, you do have options.
Use Arbitration to Settle Your Complaint
Most companies like ADT have an arbitration clause in their contracts to prevent being taken to court for traditional litigation. This is actually an advantage for the consumer. When you request an arbitration hearing, an independent third party (the arbitrator) with knowledge of the particular type of situation will listen to the facts from both sides and make an impartial, binding decision. ADT will have to do a lot of work and there is no guarantee that they will have a successful outcome.
Arbitration is Fast, Inexpensive, and Private
Arbitration with ADT is conducted through the American Arbitration Association (AAA). According to the AAA Consumer Due Process Protocol, arbitration through AAA will comply with their Statement of Principles, which includes:
- The process is fundamentally fair – All parties are entitled to qualified, competent, impartial arbitrators who will conduct a fair hearing.
- You get access to all relevant information – This includes reasonable costs, confidentiality, reasonable time limits, and meeting times and/or locations that are agreeable to both parties.
- Transparency – AAA provides clear arbitration agreements and the ability for each side to hire their own representation.
- Just process – Arbitration allows the arbitrator to award the same relief as traditional litigation in a binding decision.
- Alternative to arbitration – Mediation and the ability to take the case to small claims court should be available in some cases.
Arbitration Gives you Control and Leverage
When ADT is alerted that you plan to pursue arbitration, they know it will cost them money out of pocket. Not only do they run the risk of losing the case, but they will also pay for their mistake(s) and the arbitration itself. This gives you more leverage with your demands.
If ADT doesn’t meet those demands and you have a real complaint, Mike Agruss Law can help by representing you in arbitration where you will get a fair, just, and transparent hearing.
Control and Leverage Trigger Faster Settlements
Large companies like ADT don’t like the uncertainty and loss of control that comes with arbitration. Not only do they lose the advantage in the situation, but you’re on equal footing with them in the eyes of arbitration.
The first step in taking on ADT is to formally raise your complaint. Our lawyers at Mike Agruss Law can help you to do so. We will send a letter of demands to the corporate offices of ADT, letting them know that you’re ready to begin arbitration if a satisfactory resolution is not achieved. Typically, this is 30 days, but it will depend on your specific contract with ADT.
Approximately 50% of cases will settle before proceeding to an arbitration hearing during this time. However, if ADT doesn’t offer a reasonable settlement within the appropriate time frame, the next step would be filing a case with AAA. Mike Agruss Law will not only put together the necessary paperwork for arbitration, but we will also help you take the next steps in the arbitration process.
UDAAP and Arbitration
UDAAP is an acronym representing laws that prohibit Unfair, Deceptive, or Abusive Acts or Practices in the context of trade or business. This includes misrepresentation, deception, false advertising, or false promises. These laws emerged following the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act that was enacted in response to the 2008 financial crisis. The ultimate goal with these laws is geared towards protecting consumers involved in financial transactions, educating consumers on their rights, and allowing them access to information and resources to best inform their decisions.
UDAAP laws are regulated by two organizations: the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). The FTC expanded the initial UDAAP laws in 2004 to include unfair and deceptive acts and practices. Some standards for unfairness, in particular, include if it causes or is likely to cause substantial injury to consumers, the injury is not reasonably avoidable by consumers, and the injury is not outweighed by countervailing benefits to consumers or to competition.
Every state has UDAAP laws, which can vary widely. However, the lawyers at Mike Agruss Law understand these laws and can use them to get compensation for deceptive practices, representing consumers throughout the country in cases of arbitration at no cost to them. The company will not only pay the consumer, but they will also pay my fees as well. The consumer will never pay me a cent.
If you’re dealing with an issue with ADT, you might try filing a complaint with the BBB or the customer service team with ADT. Unfortunately, these avenues won’t always lead to a successful resolution for you, the customer. Instead, you may want to consider an experienced arbitration lawyer to take on your case.
Arbitration is a very useful tool for resolving disputes, and Mike Agruss Law can help. With our expert guidance, we bring the big companies to the table and provide the support needed to get your bills corrected, credit reports fixed, improper fees refunded, and more. Let us pick up the sword for you; you have nothing to lose.
