A class action is a representative action wherein one or more plaintiffs actually named in the complaint, along with their counsel, pursue a case for themselves and the defined class against one or more defendants. The attorneys at Hortman Harlow Bassi & Robinson recognize the importance of mass joinder and/or class action litigation. As a result, our attorneys have become actively involved in this complex area of litigation. In fact, attorneys in our firm have been asked to teach Continuing Legal Education (CLE) seminars for other attorneys, helping them to understand the best legal strategies for handling these very complex matters.
Our practice areas in the field of class action litigation include but are not limited to the following:
- Accident and insurance claims
- Defective products: SUVs, cars, trucks, aircraft
- Birth defects caused by toxic chemicals
- Cancer caused by toxic chemicals

Not only do our attorneys provide superior representation for class action plaintiffs, our attorneys offer experienced and innovative representation in the defense of cases utilizing the class action device.
