We help victims of consumer fraud, unfair business practices, wage theft, employment discrimination, and other marketplace injustice through sophisticated and zealous representation.
How We Do It:
We litigate federal class action and other significant claims against companies that have violated laws protecting employees and consumers from unscrupulous or overreaching practices.
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.
