Defending the Right to Class Action Lawsuits

Congratulations to Michael Galpern, Andrew Bell, James Barry, and everyone else here at the Locks Law Firm who contributed to the recent granting of class certification in  Martinez-Santiago vs Public Storage. Class certification is the first step in a long battle, but it is a very important step.  Emboldened by increasingly corporate-friendly decision by the Courts, including SCOTUS, corporations now believe they can ignore important laws that have been passed which protect the rights of consumers. This anti-consumer client was recently detailed in a series of articles regarding mandatory arbitration in The New York Times. Locks Law Firm has long been in the forefront when it comes to holding such corporations accountable and protecting the rights of consumers, and we will continue to do so.
