Consumers are granted a number of protections under U.S. laws, including the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), Fair Credit Billing Act (FCBA), Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCPA), Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act), Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act and Truth in Lending Act. However, exercising these rights can be an uphill battle without experienced legal counsel.
Schneider Wallace Cottrell Konecky LLP has been on the forefront of consumer protection for more than two decades. Our lawyers are experienced in representing clients’ best interests on important matters that affect rights to be treated fairly and to be fully informed. We demand compensation for the losses resulting from fraudulent corporate conduct and policies.
Consumer Class Actions
Consumers often are not in a position to defend their rights in individual lawsuits because the time and costs would far outweigh the potential damages award. For example, a consumer who was defrauded out of $100 cannot reasonably investigate the case, conduct discovery, depose witnesses and engage in settlement negotiations and try the claim in court. Thus, companies realize that their unlawful conduct is not likely to meet resistance and can generate substantial profits with relatively low risks. In the above example, the company can earn $10,000,000 by defrauding 100,000 customers out of $100.
Class action lawsuits give power to the consumer by allowing all similarly situated people to try their case in one proceeding . Our team of attorneys are skilled class action litigators.
