Class Action Litigation

Consumers face a challenging market that often rewards unfair business practices. It has become common to experience false advertising, deceptive marketing, hidden charges for services not provided or refusals to honor a warranty. Our experienced consumer protection attorneys advise consumers on whether and how to pursue legal action to stop unfair practices and obtain compensation. We continue to successfully prosecute national consumer class action lawsuits and have achieved settlements or judgments worth millions of dollars.

Many corporations have improperly and willfully misclassified their employees as independent contractors to avoid paying insurance, overtime and the responsibilities that accompany employment. For years our wage and hour litigators have combined skilled advocacy and a passion for justice to achieve the goals of our clients in employment class actions.
