Atlanta, GA asked in Consumer Law and Products Liability for Georgia

Q: What do I need to know about choosing the best law firm to sign up with for a class action suit?

I currently have a St. Jude defibrillator that is part of their recall for faulty batteries (my 2nd faulty St Jude). There are multiple law firms organizing class action suits. Are they all the same or are there important things that I need to know before choosing one to represent me?

A: You need to see what they have handled so far. Some have a solid reputation for product liability work and some are just hangers on, hoping to scoop up clients who they'll then have someone else take care of. Are the attorneys members of the Ga. Trial Lawyers Assn and the American Association for Justice? How long have they done product work?
