Class Action Attorney NYC

When companies hurt large groups of people, NYC class action lawyers exist to get justice. And these cases don’t start until one aggrieved individual files suit with the help of a trusted attorney.

When you certify a class, the court must look at similar sorts of harms suffered by larger groups of people. This turns a small claim into a much larger one and often forces action on the part of a company.

Even when specific remedies of this sort aren’t built into the settlement, companies are often forced to change their practices simply because continuing to engage in them would be too expensive.

Class action lawsuits often come with a great deal of negative PR for the defendant, resulting in a lot of public scrutinies and lost business.

And continuing to engage in certain practices could open these companies up to similar lawsuits in the future, something they typically wish to avoid.

How to determine if you have a class-action suit

The only way to determine if you have a class action suit is to meet with an experienced NYC commercial litigation lawyer. If you do, you will file as a class representative, as the person who is capable of representing the entire class in court.

Examples include:

  • Holding drug companies accountable for products with deleterious side effects.
  • Holding credit card companies accountable for unfair financial practices or fees.
  • Holding companies accountable for fraudulent and misleading practices.
  • Holding companies accountable for defective products that harm people.
  • Holding employers accountable for unfair and abusive practices.

Every case is different, so be prepared to go over yours in depth.

You have nothing to lose

By exploring the possibility of filing a class-action case, you aren’t required to pay legal fees. Your attorney will receive a percentage of the lawsuit payout only if he wins the suit, or negotiates a settlement.

Time is your only cost. You may have to spend some time preparing for the case, helping to provide your attorney with the information he needs to move forward, and you may have to spend time in court.

If you had to pursue a smaller amount by yourself you’d have to pay an attorney who would cost more than what you could expect to recoup. And you’d still have to pay the time costs.

You can get justice

Don’t let big corporations push you around. If you’ve been hurt, many other people have been hurt as well. Making a change may be as simple as calling the Richman Law Firm PLLC to file a lawsuit on your behalf.

As an attorney myself I appreciated Scott’s diligence, enthusiasm and communication. We finally got the primary carrier to put up its policy limits so that an underinsurance arbitration can be demanded. I’m confident that Scott will continue to fight to maximize my recovery.

I was highly recommended to Mr. Scott Richman through a family member of mine. Mr Richman was very professional and attentive to our situation. He walked us through the whole process of what to expect as we were looking to be compensated for our daughter’s injury due to a car accident that she was involved in. His time and attention to our case left a positive impression on us. He answered all our questions, emails and phone calls in a speedily manner. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone else that is looking for a caring and attention to detail lawyer such as him.

In a pinch, I needed general legal services within 24 hours. After a quick search, I found Scott and his firm and gave them a call. Scott answered the phone, took the time to walk me through what was happening and what I needed done, and then went out of his way to make sure it was taken care of that day. He even met me after business hours to ensure everything was taken care of, even printing out extra copies of everything to make sure I had one on file. I highly recommend Scott and his team for any of your legal needs - he is fantastic!

Scott Richman took a painful and unpleasant experience and helped me navigate it while always being available to answer any questions or address any concerns whether it was via email or phone. He always took the time to explain everything including any areas of confusion without making me feel stupid or small. He was always respectful, very knowledgeable, and worked so hard on my case. I cannot recommend him highly enough for any legal needs you may have.

Richman Law Firm PLLC is an amazing firm and worth working perusing is you need a lawyer. Scott Richman works hard and took care of everything quickly. He was easy to get a hold of, answering emails and phone calls immediately almost every time. He settled my case within a little over 8 weeks. He was in constant contact, keeping me up to date on the progress of my case. After settling my case, he reached out often to be sure I received my check and to confirm that all looked as promised per our contract. He answered every question, never making me feel stupid or small. He is a great guy to work with, very nice and very professional. Hire this firm, you won’t regret it.
