Plaintiff Focused

Plaintiff Focused

We investigate and pursue wrongdoing by corporations and litigate aggressively on behalf of our clients, whether they are individuals or millions of consumers in a class action. 

Most often we work on a contingent fee basis in order to provide legal services of the type normally limited to big corporations and the wealthy.  In such cases, you (the client) don't pay any attorneys fees or expenses up front, and we only get paid if we obtain monetary relief acceptable to you.
