Consumer Class Action
We represent consumers and small businesses in class action lawsuits. A class action allows many small claims to be combined and resolved in one lawsuit. A representative or lead plaintiff appointed by the court will prosecute the action on behalf a defined group that has been harmed by the defendant’s conduct.
Have you ever had a large company take advantage of you for a small amount of money? In today’s society consumers are routinely cheated out of $1 here, $5 there. Most consumers do not pursue such claims because it is “just a dollar”. Unscrupulous corporations count on this. If they defraud millions of consumers, the small amounts add up to bigger profits. Some companies will let corporate greed overshadow better judgment and prey on the consumer. The class action allows large groups of consumers to join together to bring lawsuits they otherwise would not have the resources or time to pursue.
We have handled class actions primarily in these areas:
Consumer fraud: The law provides consumers with protection from false and misleading advertising, deceptive business practices, and products that do not perform as advertised. Class actions are well suited to cases involving consumer fraud.
Class actions are not only about keeping defendants from profiting from their illegal acts. Frequently in class actions we can put a stop to the illegal activity protecting future consumers as well as compensating those who have been harmed.
