What We Do:

We help victims of consumer fraud, unfair business practices, wage theft, employment discrimination, and other marketplace injustice, as well as consumers and businesses facing collection on significant debts.

We litigate federal class action and other significant claims against companies that have violated laws protecting employees and consumers from unscrupulous practices. We also represent consumers and businesses that are being subjected to aggressive collection litigation on large sums.

Who We Are:

We are proud to be “law nerds”. Federal civil procedure, complicated consumer and employment statutes, and difficult legal questions are our “wheelhouse”. We love it. We are even prouder to harness our love of the law to achieve outstanding results for consumers, employees and other wronged individuals. We regularly litigate against and beat well‐heeled defendants and their big‐firm lawyers.
