Class Actions

The Sturdevant Law Firm has a wealth of experience in bringing class actions against large corporations and government entities.  Our firm has been successful in bringing cases under:

  • Consumer Legal Remedies Act
  • Unfair Competition & Business Practices Act
  • Elder Abuse Act
  • Truth in Lending Act
  • Equal Credit Opportunity Act
  • Fair Debt Collection Practices Act

Class actions are the most effective way for individuals or a small group of people to bring a lawsuit to protect the rights of hundreds, or hundreds of thousands, with complaints similar to theirs.

Class actions have been used to keep defective products out of the marketplace, combat discrimination and to make corporations pay damages for intentional misrepresentations about the products and services they sell.

The California Supreme Court has recognized the importance of consumer class actions because they provide an effective remedy for small claims that might not otherwise be addressed.  Because of their effectiveness, corporate interests constantly attempt to discredit class action lawsuits and the attorneys who file them.  Despite this effort, they remain one of the best devices for large numbers of consumers to achieve justice for corporate wrongdoing.

The majority of cases accepted for representation by The Sturdevant Law Firm are class actions.  If you feel you have been the victim of unlawful conduct that has affected a larger number of people, please contact us.
