Consumer Protection Attorneys

Consumer protection is about helping people who have been treated unfairly by businesses obtain justice.  When businesses get out of line and harm their customers, our leading consumer protection lawyers can obtain substantial monetary recoveries for the damage that they’ve done while keeping them honest so that they don’t harm others in the future.

We Bring Class Actions Against Titans Of Industry

While not all consumer protection cases are suitable to be brought as class actions, when they can be, class actions are the great equalizer.  In a class case, one or more named plaintiffs brings a lawsuit on behalf of themselves and a group that has suffered a similar injury.  This allows the lawsuit to seek damages and other relief on behalf of everyone who was similarly harmed by the business’s misconduct.  Our practice includes all industries such as financial services, technology, retail, and many others.  We tackle titans of industry such as major banks and non-bank lenders, credit unions, mortgage servicers, retailers and sellers, any many others.

You Don’t Pay In Class Actions Unless We Recover

We bring class actions on a contingency fee basis, which means that our clients in class cases pay no fees unless we prevail and we get paid our fees from a portion of the recovery.  In non-class cases whether our fees will be charged on a contingency basis is determined on a case-by-case basis.

Our consumer protection lawyers are amongst the most highly experienced and recognized nationally in the field, have won seven-figure verdicts and settlements in multiple state and federal courts, and have been recognized by Best Lawyers in America, SuperLawyer, and TopVerdict.  We handle some of the most complex and consequential consumer protection litigations brought nationally.

Consumer Protection FAQs

A consumer protection case involves a legal claim that arises when an individual who obtained a product or service from a business for personal, family or household purposes is victimized by the business’s illegal act or omission, such as by an unfair, deceptive or abusive act or practice.

What Are The Steps In A Consumer Protection Case Proceeding As A Class Action?

The first step in any consumer protection class action is to consult with an attorney, who will help discern if the business engaged in unlawful conduct that is actionable and the case can be maintained on behalf of a class.  If the matter proceeds as a class action, a proposed “putative” class action lawsuit will be commenced in court.  The court will need to approve the proposed class by certifying it.  Notice must be given to the class members, and some may choose to opt out of the class by deciding not to participate in it.  There may be motion practice in which the parties seek to dispose of or narrow the claims to be tried.  The parties may each take discovery.  If the case does not settle either on a class or individual settlement basis, it will proceed to trial.  A judgment will enter determining who prevailed and any remedies.  The parties aggrieved by the decision are afforded an appeal.  Payment comes when the case settled or is successfully tried through appeal.

How Do I Choose A Consumer Protection Lawyer?

There are many factors to consider when seeking the support of a consumer protection lawyer, so it’s important to do your due diligence. A law firm with proven results and strong client testimonials is a good indication of the type of experience you’ll have with them.  Other details to keep in mind include whether the lawyers actually try lawsuits in court, or if they only charge a fee if there is a recovery.
