New Jersey & New York Class Action Lawyers
Class actions level the playing field when the defendant is a large corporation with limitless resources who can afford the very best legal representation and services. The purpose of class action lawsuits is to give the individual, common, person the ability to take on the largest corporations or private entities to redress the wrong done by them. Uniting together hundreds or thousands of individuals, helps bring your issues in front of the Courts and ensures that the corporate defendant(s) take notice of their widespread wrongs. Moreover, untiting individuals together allows for the sharing of costs between many plaintiffs, making discovery and litigation economically feasible. People who participate in class action litigation not only help themselves and others, they also send a strong message that the continued wrongdoing has a price and needs to be remedied.
