Practice/Industry Group Overview
Litigation under state and federal consumer protection laws has skyrocketed in the past decade. To meet the needs of our clients, Marshall Dennehey Warner Coleman & Goggin has responded with a team of litigation lawyers devoted to the defense of financial institutions, lenders and debt collection agencies. Our Consumer and Credit Law defense attorneys are broad-based and range from partners, who defend large class-action cases, to associates, who approach each case with the most current knowledge and zeal.
Our defense attorneys defend clients from claims under both state and federal statutes, including but not limited to the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the Truth in Lending Act. While most state and federal statutes enacting consumer protection laws are decades old, the application of these statutes by state and federal courts to today's practices are ever-changing and often incongruent. It is this constant change that necessitates the individual knowledge our attorneys can offer in both defense of consumer claims and compliances assistance designed to help avoid future claims.
Founded in 1962, Marshall Dennehey Warner Coleman & Goggin is now the largest law firm in the country devoted exclusively to civil defense litigation practice areas. We have almost 450 attorneys who staff eighteen offices strategically located in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Tampa, Orlando, Jacksonville, Ft. Lauderdale and communities throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Ohio, Florida and New York. Our offices are centrally linked by state-of-the-art computer networking. Our clients realize added value from our extensive network of offices: travel time is sharply reduced, and the attorneys working out of these offices and living in these respective areas are intimately familiar with the local practice and enjoy a good rapport with the local judges before whom they frequently appear.
Recognizing the need for a cost-effective approach to the defense of professionals, our law firm is dedicated to providing our clients with quality, timely and economical service. We are on the cutting edge in developing innovative and alternative billing practices.
We welcome the opportunity to work with you in handling your professional liability litigation. We are also available to conduct presentations or training seminars at your location, or at one of our many offices.
