Consumer Law Attorney

Our small plaintiff’s consumer law/protection boutique is seeking an attorney with 2-10+ years of consumer law (preferably plaintiff’s, but open to defense side) experience. This attorney will file complaints in federal court alleging violations by debt collectors of certain federal statutes (e.g., Fair Debt Collection Practices Act; Fair Credit Reporting Act) and then negotiate a settlement. A typical matter takes about 7-8 weeks to settle from the date it is filed. 

 

There is very little actual litigation as the firm has never had a trial and, in the course of a year, maybe 3-4 depositions will be taken. This is a high volume practice area, which focuses on strict liability matters, so the fees are usually guaranteed. The compensation package includes a base salary and percentage of net collections from every case the attorney settles, and there is no billable hours requirement.
