The Mathews Law Group has represented consumers and employees across the country in class action lawsuits against some of the nation’s largest corporations. We represent consumers victimized by fraud, unfair business practices, defective products, or other illegal activities under both federal and state consumer protection laws. We also represent employees in wage and hour class actions.
A Class Action is a civil lawsuit brought on behalf of many people who have been harmed in a similar manner. A class action cannot be prosecuted unless at least one person harmed by the conduct is willing to serve as a class representative (Lead Plaintiff). Class action lawsuits may offer a number of advantages because they combine a large number of individual claims into one lawsuit. This can increase the efficiency of the legal process and also overcome the problem that small recoveries do not provide the incentive for individual to bring a solo action.
