Protecting Our Finances
The hard-working Americans who form the foundation of our economy are also the ones most threatened by the unfair practices and illegal profiteering of certain banks, mortgage providers, and credit card companies. It’s an imbalance we can’t afford to ignore.
So here’s how Baron & Budd is working every day to correct that imbalance.
Not so long ago, banks reaped big profits with a common policy that used overdraft fees to an unfair advantage.
Responding with a nationwide class action, Baron & Budd helped negotiate settlements to repay bank clients for fees that should not have been charged – and put an end to the banking industry’s practice of re-ordering debit card charges to maximize overdraft fees.
Working alongside co-counsel, we achieved remarkable results: settlements with Bank of America, JP MorganChase and Comerica.
We’ve also tackled, and continue to tackle, financial wrongdoing in other arenas.
Sometimes the fraud looks like credit card companies selling extras with no consumer benefits, or online companies charging people for monthly subscriptions they did not intentionally purchase.
Then sometimes it looks like home mortgages that are inappropriately inflated with hidden fees.
Whatever the financial issue, Baron & Budd stands ready to confront the ways that Big Business is taking advantage of you, the consumer.
To us, it’s simply a matter of protecting what’s right.
