What is a Class Action Suit?

Consumer Rights Law Firm Serving Clients in Chicago, Illinois, and Nationwide

At Markoff Leinberger, we understand that certain cases require a different approach to litigation. We are skilled class action lawyers with more than 15 years of experience in the Chicago area. This area of law is exceptionally complicated, which means your choice of attorney is quite important.
