Kingsley & Kingsley Launches New Web Site To Expand Practice Into Consumer Class Actions
Los Angeles law firm with substantial experience in wage and hour law diversifies with growth of large-scale consumer class action practice
Encino, CA (PRWEB) May 24, 2010 - A highly regarded Los Angeles law firm has introduced a new Web site, providing consumers with access to a wide range of news and information regarding the firm's fast-growing consumer class action practice.
The new site was launched by Kingsley & Kingsley, a law firm that provides individuals and families throughout California with legal representation in employment matters, in dealing with their insurance company, or in connection with a personal injury they have suffered due to the fault of another.
The firm is well-respected for its work in representing plaintiffs with "wage and hour" disputes with their employers, such as protecting their rights to overtime, benefits and other job protections. The new site showcases the firm's expansion into the area of consumer class action matters, in which they help consumers recover for the wrongs done to them and seek to force corporations to act responsibly toward the public.
"Consumers often feel that they are at the mercy of large corporations and that, although there may be laws designed to protect the consumer, there is little they can do when a product fails to perform as promised," said Eric Kingsley, partner at Kingsley and Kingsley Employment Lawyers. "In these situations, the law provides for class action lawsuits by which a large group of people who have been mistreated may be represented in one lawsuit against a company. These types of cases are usually settled for large sums by the offending company, which typically changes its behavior after the lawsuit and no longer engages in the pattern of wrongful conduct."
According to Kingsley, the firm's new Web site includes a wide variety of news and information regarding its practice areas, as well as examples of specific cases the firm has handled for clients. These include current class action lawsuits involving Beck's Furniture and E & J Gallo.
Since 1997, Kingsley and Kingsley Employment Lawyers has been dedicated to helping plaintiffs harmed by the negligence or wrongdoing of corporate America. Whether their client has suffered mistreatment in the workplace or been denied the insurance benefits to which they are rightfully entitled, the firm's experienced attorneys have the skills and legal expertise to provide effective assistance.
