When we see people harmed by unsafe products or unscrupulous business practices, we represent those injured consumers in class actions and investigations.

Far too often, individuals and small businesses are harmed by unsafe products, unscrupulous business practices, or unfair stock manipulations. If you feel you have been harmed by a defective product, deceived by an unscrupulous business practice, or harmed financially by unfair practices undertaken by a financial institution, a class action or mass tort lawsuit may be the answer. In a class action or mass tort lawsuit, several parties sue on behalf of a larger group. While they are often very hard and costly to win, they can be achieve the appropriate remedy.

Our ability to craft winning strategies is well-recognized nationally. While we are a relatively young firm, our class actions work is broad and extends across a range of matter types from representing gamers forced to make in-game purchases on non-existent deals to representing businesses and restaurants who have been unknowingly listed on apps and other company websites to representing seniors scammed by magazine subscription companies to representing immigrant detainees forced to work without compensation. We believe that when an injustice has been committed, ordinary citizens deserve a chance to remedy that injustice.

We also have developed real expertise about which larger firms to partner with, and when. If you think you have identified the basis of an interesting class action, talk to us.

Featured Current Cases

Featured Active Investigations

A class action lawsuit is a way for a group of people who have suffered similar harms to bring a single collective case and share in any potential award. You become part of a group, with far more potential power than filing a lawsuit on your own—and at no cost to you.

Filing a class action lawsuit allows us to consolidate evidence, witnesses, and litigation expenses to make the lawsuit more efficient and effective. The collective “clout” of the class is typically far more effective than an action by any individual plaintiff.

No! The attorneys work on contingency, and only get paid if the case is successful. Any fees they may be awarded are determined by the court and paid by the defendant.

Each class action has different qualifying components. A representative from our firm will speak with you to see if you qualify.

In addition to responding to unscrupulous business practices and defective products, class actions are file in situations where employees are discriminated against by their employer, or when individuals have been harmed by false advertising, price fixing, or securities fraud.
