Welcome to Leonard Law Office, PC‘s class action blog. The mistreatment of consumers and workers by businesses is one of the most interesting subjects in the law, and in the news. Deception and misconduct in the marketplace has a long and colorful history. From the rattlesnake oil rheumatism cures peddled by immoral salesmen in the 1800’s, to modern day issues such as robocalls, hidden fees, data breaches, wage theft, products aimed at weight loss and anti-aging — unfair business practices affect every aspect of American life. We are all consumers and most of us work for wages. Class actions can be a vehicle for consumers and employees to fight for change and promote fairness.
If you want to talk about an idea for a class action (such as false advertising, mystery fees, bad products, wage theft) you are welcome to contact us.
