My name is Mike Eidson and I am a partner at Colson Hicks Eidson, a national class action law firm. When a large corporation does something that adversely affects a large group of people, a class action lawsuit enables all of the affected people to act with one voice. Colson Hicks Eidson represents consumers, small businesses and injured people in class action lawsuits throughout the country, seeking money damages and other relief in federal and state court systems. Currently, we are actively participating in a wide range of class actions including mass torts and claims arising under consumer fraud statutes. Suits of this type have been brought against the manufacturers of such products as IUDs, diet drugs and tobacco and many others. Harmful consumer practices such as junk real estate fees, overcharging for bank services or using misleading information to sell products can lead to class actions as well. Shareholders of companies can also use class actions to hold executives accountable for poor management or misleading investment information. Finally, employees can sue employers for discriminatory practices or violation of benefit agreements. If you feel that you know of a case that would meet the above criteria for bringing a class action case, please call and speak to our class action lawyers.
