Class Actions

Pennsylvania Class Actions

We have experience representing plaintiff groups certified as classes. We also have experience representing corporate defendants in collective and class action cases.

Class actions empower individual plaintiffs who would otherwise be at a serious disadvantage in confronting a powerful defendant to obtain strength in numbers to balance the scales of justice. Appropriate class actions can deter unlawful behavior, promote justice and ensure that the free market serves the public good.

On a carefully selected case-by-case basis our firm will represent class action Plaintiffs in state and federal courts on such varied issues as:

  • Unlawful vehicle repossessions
  • Violations of the Uniform Commercial Code
  • Consumer fraud
  • Violations of consumer protection statutes
  • Fraudulent lending practices
  • Shareholder fraud

It may be that an insurance company is cheating its commercial policy holders or brokers out of small amounts of cash. For a single policy holder or broker who notices such fraud the loss is not worth filing an individual lawsuit. However, the filing of a class action might be a reasonable way to stop such a fraud. Or, for example, if a debt collector overcharges consumers, or, a vehicle lender engages in unlawful repossession, a class action may be warranted. In a class action a group of Plaintiffs can seek justice when it would not be economically practical for each Plaintiff to do so individually. In almost all cases, class action lawsuits are pursued at no cost to the Plaintiffs.

Have you received notice of a class action to which you may be a party?

You have the right to know whether your interests will be adequately represented by the class action and its attorneys, or, whether you’d be better off opting out of the case or objecting to it. Our attorneys can advise you on the best course of action.
