CONSUMER CLASS ACTIONS
Fineman ◊ Poliner attorneys focus on bringing class actions against all types of private businesses which sell food, merchandise, or services to the public, as well class actions against government entities violating state and federal laws. Class actions allow people to take action against those responsible for fraud and deceptive financial practices. Fraud can be any business of government practice that misleads the general public for the purpose of turning a profit or for benefiting governmental organizations.
The attorneys at Fineman ◊ Poliner average at least 20 years of experience representing people hurt by false advertising, bait-and-switch tactics, confidence tricks, false billing, and identity theft - all examples of consumer fraud. These kinds of misconduct can be financially devastating to the unsuspecting victim. When a company or organization engages in these strategies to defraud the general public, Fineman ◊ Poliner consumer class action attorneys can help the victims obtain compensation for their losses. Our attorneys have successfully handled consumer fraud cases against major companies such as Target, Sears, Barnes & Noble, and J.C. Penney, as well as cases against numerous governmental organizations. We focus on areas such as overbilling, gift card redemption claims, false advertising, unfair sales practices, and privacy law as well as numerous other areas including violations of the Consumers Legal Remedies Act, the Unfair Competition Law, and the Unfair Practices Act.
EMPLOYMENT CLASS ACTIONS
Fineman ◊ Poliner attorneys focus on bringing class actions against employers. When employers violate employment laws, they often do so against groups of similar employees at once. In those situations, class actions allow employees to vindicate their rights as a group, which is more efficient economically and creates strength in numbers.
We represent employees who have been victims of wage theft by their employers, such as unpaid overtime, missed meal and rest breaks, misclassification, and failure to reimburse expenses associated with job duties. Through class action litigation, employees can get the type and breadth of evidence necessary to prove that an employer has violated the law against them as a group and create company-wide changes to prevent future violations.
Class action litigation requires a particular expertise, resources, and skills to prosecute successfully. The attorneys of Fineman ◊ Poliner have substantial experience prosecuting and settling employment class actions and are well versed in class action law.
