Lakeshore Law Center Firm Overviewby Bridgit Nelsen Accounting
The Lakeshore Law Center represents consumers and small businesses against large corporations and powerful business interests in civil litigation and all sorts of individuals or businesses in civil and criminal appeals.
Founded in 1992 by U. C. Berkeley (Boalt Law School) graduate Jeffrey Wilens, the Law Center has successfully prosecuted numerous class and individual actions against payday loan companies, creditors, automobile dealerships, lending institutions, timeshare marketers, and other businesses for racketeering, consumer fraud, false advertising, unfair business practices, credit reporting and debt collection violations.
Typically, Mr. Wilens will represent the consumer in his or her dispute with the business for a small or no initial fee, and will thereafter pursue litigation as necessary on a contingency fee basis. If the consumer is successful, he or she will usually be reimbursed for any initial legal fees.
Examples of actual and potential recoveries by consumers can be found in the pending lawsuits and successful cases sections. It can be seen that the individual consumer can receive significant monetary compensation even in the case of relatively modest damages. Moreover, most consumer protection laws authorize a separate award of attorney's fees, which maximizes the consumer's recovery.
Appellate Law Practice
Jeffrey Wilens has represented criminal or civil parties in appellate and writ proceedings since 1986. He is one of a handful of California lawyers to have been certified by the California State Board of Legal Specialization in two fields:
• Appellate Law (1999-2009)
• Criminal Law (1994-2004)
As of December 2002, there were only 201 attorneys in California certified as specialists in appellate law and 356 attorneys certified in criminal law out of more than 100,000 attorneys.
