Often a legal matter can reach a satisfactory resolution for all parties without the aid of a judge or jury, but when this is not possible, our attorneys are not afraid to take your case to court. Our priority is always to get the best settlement for you. We are experts in serious civil litigation, and we will try your individual case, or we may place it in a class action lawsuit. Our decision will always have your best interests at the forefront.
Class action litigation involves banding together individuals with a common legal interest and pursuing a common legal outcome. This practice frequently makes it possible for individuals to gain a positive outcome when they would otherwise not be able to afford the cost of a lawsuit. Class action lawsuits also save time and money in the courts, while providing all wronged parties with satisfactory compensation.
Legal matters that have been successfully litigated in class action include issues with the tobacco industry, breast implant concerns and mesothelioma victims who have been exposed to asbestos. Frequently individuals with claims against large corporations or industries with extensive resources experience a more positive income as a class action group.
Product defects and consumer fraud, such as telephone, mail and internet fraud, also have been successful in class action litigation. If you or a loved one have been victimized by identity theft, telephone or email solicitations, a tax or auction scam, you are entitled to compensation. Usually such illegal operations target hundreds or thousands of people, and a class action is the most effective way to stop the offender and get a settlement that helps all victims
At Russ Smith Law, we study each case individually to determine what is in your best interests. If class action litigation is best, we will discuss the details with you to ascertain you fully understand the process.
