What is a class action law suit?

Put simply, it is a lawsuit brought by many people who have been harmed in the same way by the same entity. Most lawsuits are very expensive ---- too expensive for the average person to pursue. Furthermore, the harm done to the individual may be too small to make it worth their time (or an attorney’s time) to pursue.

For example, let’s say you were improperly charged $20 for a phone service you purchased. You’re not going to invest time, money, and energy into a lawsuit to recover that $20 now are you? Now, let’s say you learn about dozens—even hundreds of other people that have also been improperly charged the same $20 by the same phone service. They also don’t have the time, money, or energy for a legal recourse.

Class action lawsuits provide a legal mechanism for all these people to recover their money and put an end to the phone service’s faulty charges. These people become part of a plaintiff class, while a law firm handles their claims. Their claims are aggregated together into a single lawsuit against the entity that wronged them.

What We Stand For

Our mission is to seek justice for California citizens who have been victimized by large corporations, insurance companies, or their current/former employers. Many large corporations deliberately break the law in an effort to cheat consumers and employees out of their money and fundamental rights. Several corporations also struggle in their understanding and application of the law which further causes many Californians to get cheated. We seek these entities out and put an end to the practices while seeking recovery for those who were wronged.

You Risk Nothing By Talking To Us

Our firm works on a contingency fee basis. This means that if we don’t win any money from the lawsuit, you don’t owe us a penny. Conversely, if we do win money from judgment or settlement, we keep a percentage as payment for our services. In addition, your first consultation is free, confidential, and can be done over the phone.

Contigency Fee + Free Consultation = Nothing to lose by calling us or filling out our web form

Your Time Window May Be Running Out

Every civil claim has a statute of limitations. This means that there is a time limit that starts from the day you were wronged and ends after a given amount of years (prescribed by law). If you do not file your claim within this time frame, you may lose the right to file it at all. Pay attention to when you may have been wronged and be sure you give yourself (and a potential attorney) plenty of time to investigate the matter.
