Consumer Attorney Jason Shear acquires deep satisfaction from successfully representing clients and permanently altering patterns of illegal industry-wide business practices. Some of these businesses include Debt Collection Agencies; Debt Collectors; Banks; Credit Reporting Agencies and others.
Jason Shear has experience bringing class actions on behalf of his consumer clients in State and Federal Court.
Are you being mistreated by a collection agency, credit reporting agency or any other type of company? For example, have you received a confusing letter from a collection agency? Has a debt buyer re-aged debt on your credit report? Many times, these companies, in addition to your own illegal treatment, have mistreated other individuals, as well. As a result, you may be able to bring a class action lawsuit!
Class action lawsuits provide power to individuals, who without the power of this group, would be able to recover very little in terms of monetary compensation. Therefore, it may not be worth it to bring a case based on an individual basis only. However, when it comes to a class action lawsuit, there is a strength in numbers and recoveries can frequently add up to many thousands of dollars in the aggregate.
If we are able to have your claim certified as a class action lawsuit and then later be able to win or settle your case, the losing company may have to pay money to everyone affected by the illegal behavior.
If you are to bring your case first, you can become the class representative which will entitle you to even more money!
Examples of federal statutes that provide the basis for claims that we handle in consumer class action litigation include:
- Credit Reporting Errors (Fair Credit Reporting)
- Creditor Harassment (Fair Debt Collection Practices)
- Truth in Lending
- Bankruptcy Code
- Credit Repair Organizations
- Federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act
