Consumer Class Actions
We represent consumers across the United States in class action lawsuits against some of the largest and most sophisticated companies in the world. SL Chapman lawyers have built their reputation on aggressive representation and a successful track record in the courtroom.
When groups of people suffer similar or related losses a class action lawsuit may enable our firm to effectively leverage these claims into a single lawsuit. Federal and state courts have unique procedures that govern these cases. A judge must allow the lawsuit to proceed as a class action and determine whether the plaintiff and the attorneys are qualified to represent the class, for example. Our trial lawyers are experienced in these procedures and are dedicated to helping the injured find justice, including through class action litigation.
To litigate class action claims, attorneys need to consider numerous state and federal laws regarding the specific types of claims. In addition, class action attorneys must also navigate a large body of procedural law that relates specifically to class actions. These dual requirements mean that attorneys are most successful when class actions are a serious part of their practice. The result of our focus on class actions is an aggressive and diverse group of class action attorneys who are involved in a variety of interesting cases.
False advertising, bait and switch marketing, phony disclosure of manipulative bookkeeping devices, unconscionable pricing, and charging for services never provided are some of the many unfair and deceptive practices rogue corporations use to defraud consumers. These deceptive business practices also distort the marketplace by allowing dishonest businesses to gain an unfair advantage over ethical competitors. State and federal laws, however, provide consumers with broad protection from unfair and illegal business practices.
We represent individuals against insurance companies, financial services companies, retailers, mortgage companies, telecommunication companies, internet suppliers, automobile manufacturers, and companies within a variety of other industries. We have also represented employees against employers for violations of wage and hour laws. In addition, SL Chapman lawyers have zealously represented medical providers against the insurance industry’s improper medical bill review practices. Our consumer protection attorneys have represented homeowners charged for escrow services that were never provided, bank debit and credit cardholders assessed improper and excessive late, over limit, and overdraft fees, and uninsured hospital patients charged exorbitant prices for medical care.
We have the experience, resources and commitment to go up against large corporations and employers in complex litigation that can take significant time and investments to pursue. Our firm offers strong client commitment. We firmly believe in protecting the rights and interests of our clients and take every necessary step to ensure that we achieve the results our clients need and deserve.
