At Britton Law, our attorneys represent individuals against some of the largest companies in the country who violate federal and state laws.
A class action lawsuit is brought by one or more individuals on behalf of a larger group, or “class,” of individuals who have similar claims. The purpose of a class action lawsuit is to combine numerous claims of individuals into a single case to provide a legal remedy for the entire class of people.
A huge advantage of class action lawsuits is that it allows large groups of people with smaller cases the ability to join to fight against illegal conduct that may be impossible on an individual basis. In most instances, the clients are not responsible for the costs of litigating the case or for attorneys’ fees. The goal is to have the defendants pay all amounts that result because of their unlawful conduct.
Our attorneys represent a diverse range of clients, including:
- Consumers who have been the victim of unfair debt collection attempts by collection agencies or mortgage servicing companies, unlawful credit reporting, fraud, unfair business practices, or false advertising;
- Tenants of corporate apartment complexes required to pay illegal fees or expenses or have been forced to live in substandard housing
- Employees who have not been paid earned bonuses, paid-time-off, overtime compensation, or minimum wages;
- Investors who have been victimized by unlawful conduct by large corporations, partnerships, or other entities when purchasing securities or other investments;
- Borrowers targeted by predatory lending practices or who have been assessed unlawful interest rates or fees; and,
- Businesses who have been harmed by price-fixing agreements or other anti-competitive conduct by large corporations.
