If your legal rights were violated, we often can represent you for free. Most consumer statutes allow attorneys to get their fees and costs from the company that harmed you.
If you’re getting sued for old debt, we offer low cost, flat fees in defense of consumers. We often offer a money back guarantee if we don’t win your case.
East End Trial Group represents individuals with disabilities whose civil rights were violated. We help clients eliminate barriers to information, technology, housing, education, employment, and transportation. We never charge our clients for representation.
We rely on complex, system-changing class-action cases, structured negotiations, and other forms of advocacy to reform systems and practices that discriminate against people with disabilities, including mobility, sensory, cognitive, and psychiatric.
We take pride in litigating high-impact disability rights cases and in representing individuals with disabilities, their families, and the advocacy organizations to which they belong.
Please contact us to discuss any discriminatory industry practices you’ve encountered.

Privacy violations concern the unauthorized viewing, taking, disclosure, retention, or use of sensitive, protected, or confidential data, like health information, personally identifiable information (social security numbers and addresses), intellectual property, trade secrets, emails, passwords, or other statutorily protected information. When sensitive information is disclosed, it can result in fraud or identity theft.
East End Trial Group helps people protect their privacy rights and seek redress when companies fail to protect personal information.
Please contact us if you receive a breach notice letter or email, or if you believe your information was disclosed, used, or stored improperly or without authorization. If you think you’re data has been hacked, you may consider purchasing a password manager if you don’t use one already (we like 1Password) and monitoring your emails at HIBP.
Officers and directors owe corporations and their shareholders a duty of care and loyalty. East End Trial Group helps shareholders hold companies accountable when management breaches these duties.
For example, suppose the top brass convinced a company’s compensation committee to award them millions of dollars in unwarranted stock option payments. A lawsuit challenging these awards can have the beneficial effect of forcing the executives to return the unwarranted compensation, ensure the company’s stock option plan is interpreted properly going ahead, and deter corporate wrongdoing across the board.
The law also requires that when a public company speaks, it does so truthfully. For example, top officers must fairly present a company’s financial condition and results of its operations. When business is good, it must say so. When it’s not, it must say that too. East End Trial Group prosecutes claims on behalf of shareholders who purchased or sold securities at a price that was negatively affected by a company’s misleading disclosures.
Please contact us if you believe a company breached its duties to you.
