Consumer Law

The Consumer Law Project represents low-income New Yorkers with legal problems involving debt collection, identity theft, wage garnishment, and bank account freezing. Participating attorneys work on affirmative State and federal litigation involving consumer protection laws, consumer related policy advocacy, and affirmative litigation against private equity companies that engage in unlawful consumer practices. They engage in fact development, research, discovery, motion practice, negotiations, witness preparation, oral argument, trial advocacy, settlement discussions, and monitoring compliance with consent decrees.
