“Mass Action” and not “Class Action”
Our clients are individuals. Our clients each have their own individual injuries. There are instances in which a “class action” may protect the rights of many people, but there are times when a “mass action” is a more appropriate form through which to seek justice. We assess each client’s case on an individual basis to determine what is in our particular client’s best interest. Call us today to see how we can help YOU, which may not be through a class action procedure.
