Standing Up For Your Rights
Please contact LaGuardia Law for a free consultation. If you have a legal question, call and tell us about it. We want to hear about your legal issues and concerns. And, if we can’t help you, we have an extensive referral network of local law firms that will be able to assist you. LaGuardia Law focuses on the following legal areas:
We can help stop debt collector harassment and sue debt collectors who violate the law by engaging in harassing, threatening, or abusive behavior and at no cost to you.
Strict state and federal laws, such as the California Rosenthal Act as well as the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), govern the way debt collectors are permitted to go about debt collection and many debt collectors break the law. When debt collectors break these laws, they are required to pay your attorney fees and costs when we win your case. If the case is lost, we charge you nothing. Because we only get paid if we win your case, you can rest assured that if we agree to represent you, we are confident we can win it. Call us today to discuss your situation for free.
If you are being sued for a debt you do not owe or cannot afford to pay, we can defend you in the lawsuit. Once you are served with a lawsuit you have limited time to act, so do not wait until your wages are garnished or your bank account is levied, call us without delay.
Debt collectors can place harmful items on your credit report that can prevent you from getting credit or a loan. Debt collectors often place inaccurate information on credit reports in violation of state and federal laws including the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and the California Consumer Credit Reporting Agencies Act (CCRAA). We can help by getting this information corrected and if they do not fix their reporting errors, we will sue them on your behalf and with no attorney fees or costs to you.
A class action, class suit, or representative action is a type of lawsuit where one of the parties is a group of people who are represented collectively by a member of that group. The class action originated in the United States and is still predominantly a U.S. phenomenon, but several European countries with civil law, have made changes in recent years to allow consumer organizations to bring claims on behalf of consumers.
In a typical class action, a plaintiff sues a defendant or a number of defendants on behalf of a group, or class, of absent parties. This differs from a traditional lawsuit, where one party sues another party for redress of a wrong, and all of the parties are present in court. Although standards differ between states and countries, class actions are most common where the allegations involve a large number of people who have been injured by the same defendant in the same way.Instead of each injured person bringing their own lawsuit, the class action allows all the claims of all class members—whether they know they have been injured or not—to be resolved in a single proceeding
A personal injury accident can leave you with medical bills, lost wages, and damages to your person or vehicle. Without an attorney, you may be at a tremendous disadvantage when dealing with insurance companies whose only interest is settling your claim for as little as possible before you are able to retain an attorney. We aggressively represent you and protect your rights. In order to evaluate whether you may be able to recover, and to ensure the appropriate steps are taken in your case, call LaGuardia Law. If we bring your case, we do so on a contingency basis so you pay nothing up front and we recover only if you do.
We handle: Car Accidents, Motorcycle Accidents, Pedestrian and Bike Accidents, Wrongful Death, Brain Injury, Boating Accidents, Train Accidents, Victims of Drunk Driving, Product Liability, Dog Bites, Premises Liability, and Commercial Vehicle Accidents.
While trying to get as much work out of their employees as possible, employers often misclassify employees as exempt from overtime when they are not, fail to provide legally required meal and rest breaks, demand employees to continue working off the clock, fail to pay overtime hours worked, and fail to provide accurate pay stubs showing the correct amount of wages earned. If you believe that your employer has violated their obligation under the California Labor Code or the federal Fair Labor Standards Act, contact our office. We are happy to discuss your situation.
If you have suffered negative professional consequences for failing to consent to sexual activities or because you have been discriminated against due to your gender, race, sexual orientation, or disability, you may be entitled to recovery under the law and we can sue on your behalf to ensure this conduct no longer happens to you or others.
We can help you build your case using evidence like properly documented complaints and witness statements. If your employer refuses to take appropriate action to stop the harassment or discrimination, or has retaliated against you for making a complaint, we can help.
