The Feeling of Not Being Able to Vindicate Your Rights is Frustrating
You have complained to a business or your employer about their unfair practice. Your complaint falls on deaf ears. You complain again and fill-out online complaint forms. You spent hours on the phone with customer service or "HR" getting nowhere. You've given them every opportunity to correct the issue which only involves a small amount of money to them but means a lot to you. You get nowhere.
This is the story we hear from our class action clients all the time. They have all done the right thing by taking their complaints "up the line" but the business or employer at the other end either ignores them or claims that it is doing nothing wrong. Where do you turn now?
The good news is that the law created class actions to deal with the frustration and anger associated with a business or employer who will not voluntarily change their illegal practices. Consumers and employees can hire Phillips Garcia, a MA class action attorney in Dartmouth/New Bedford MA area to band together in a class action lawsuit to challenge a business or employer's policies, procedures and practices.

Are There Upfront Fees or Costs to Hire Your Firm for a Class Action?
No. We handle class action claims on a contingency basis where we front our legal time and the costs to bring the case. If the case is allowed to proceed as a class action by the court and is successful, the judge will establish the amount of fees and costs we can receive from the amount of money that was won. The judge typically makes this fee and cost award based on a percentage of the the total settlement or judgment that was won.
