Consumer Protection

We stand for consumer rights.

It’s hard to go alone against a company that has taken advantage of you, made false promises, or failed to live up to its obligations. We’re here to stand with you.

We make companies play by the rules that protect us.

Some corporations rush to get their products into the marketplace without adequately testing them, ignoring safety rules and taking advantage of lax regulations. Other corporations expose us to toxic chemicals in our food, water and air, without concern for the impacts on our health that may occur years or decades later. And still others carelessly handle our sensitive financial information, enabling hackers to steal our identities and our money. It seems wherever we turn we encounter corporations that ignore the rules.  We have the tenacity, resources, and experience to make sure big corporations don’t place profits ahead of people.

Our services include:

  • Initial free consultation
  • Investigation of your claim
  • Interviewing witnesses
  • Filing & handling all aspects of litigation
  • Engaging in settlement negotiations
  • Trying your case to a jury
  • Appeals
