Elite Lawyers Handling Complex Cases

Schneider Wallace Cottrell Konecky LLP is an AV rated national law firm that represents institutional clients, public entities and classes of individuals as plaintiffs in complex cases around the country.  

Our focus on high stakes litigation is motivated by two overarching and passionate goals:  To provide top notch legal representation to both our individual and institutional clients while pursuing justice at every turn. 

Through our individual and consumer practice, Schneider Wallace historically has been among the nation's most prominent advocates for injured and underpaid workers, consumers and discrimination victims.  We continue to handle such matters with distinction.

As the firm has grown in recent years -- opening a new offices in Arizona in 2008 and Texas in 2011 -- so has its clientele.  While Schneider Wallace does no defense work of any kind, it now frequently represents institutional clients that have come to recognize the benefit of working with an agressive Plaintiffs' side litigation firm for offensive litigation.  Schneider Wallace represents these clients sometimes on an hourly basis, but more often pursuant to alternative fee arrangements such as contingency fees or hybrid hourly/contingent fee structures.

Our work has taken us into federal and state courts, where we have pursued class action suits and other complex litigation both for and against Fortune 500 companies, government entities and major universities.  Schneider Wallace also frequently represents institutional and individual plaintiffs in Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) arbitrations concerning a variety of financial products.

Schneider Wallace attorneys represent plaintiffs whose cases have reached all levels of the justice system, including federal and state trial courts, state Courts of Appeal, federal Circuit Courts of Appeal, state Supreme Courts and the United States Supreme Court.  In all instances, we vigorously pursue the rights of our clients.

Our practice emphasizes litigation in the areas of:

Class Actions

A class action lawsuit allows one person or a small group of people to be represented by a law firm and sue on behalf of hundreds, thousands or hundreds of thousands of different people with similar complaints. Because there is strength in numbers, a class action lawsuit is a powerful tool that individuals can use to enforce the law against large corporate firms and government entities.

Failure to Pay Wages, Overtime, Commissions

Because pursuing a wage and hour lawsuit for a single worker rarely makes economic sense – i.e. the potential recovery does not justify the costs and risks of litigation – large employers have traditionally flouted California’s wage and hour labor laws with impunity. However, for the past decade, we have been increasingly successful in prosecuting wage and hour claims as class action lawsuits.
