The firm represents clients in both a class action capacity and on an individual basis in cases involving statutory and local ordinance compliance.
Examples of cases in which we have been involved include: representing the Tax Collector of Palm Beach County in an action against several Online Travel Companies for failure to pay state and local taxes; a class action alleging statutory non-compliance against Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs) in Florida for failing to pay medical providers in compliance with Florida’s Prompt Pay Act, class actions on behalf of homeowners in foreclosure cases against banks and law firms for violations of Florida’s Consumer Collection Practices Act, and class actions against lenders and mortgage companies for charging excessive insurance rates to homeowners.
Individual claims include: cases against local government for violating the commercial free speech of business owners related to the way in which they advertise, claims on behalf of employees against their employers for failure to pay wages, cases involving civil theft, claims on behalf of consumers against businesses and companies who have violated Florida’s Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Act, and many more.
It is important to keep in mind that many of these statutes upon which a claim is brought include an attorney’s fee provision. This means that we may be able to seek our attorney’s fees from the opposing party instead of charging our own clients for our work. This is why it is important to seek legal advice, even if you believe your claim is small or it is not worth hiring an attorney.
