How can I discuss a potential class action with an attorney

A class action undertaking is a very complicated and large undertaking for the attorneys that bring these cases so they’re going to want to do a very thorough investigation. Whatever documentation you bring in to show them the matter that you’re complaining of, be it a potential consumer case or a securities case, they will want to determine first and foremost whether this is a common issue, common to a large number of people such that it can be brought as a class action. After they’ve done that they would probably investigate to determine whether there are other cases already brought or on their way to being brought by other firms in the various arenas, state court, federal court to determine how far that matter has advanced and whether it makes sense to bring on yet another case, which sometimes it does.
