Jack's practice has included matters involving consumer class actions, landlord tenant class actions, unfair business practice claims, disputes involving sophisticated financial products, and alleged violations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act. His practice covers all aspects of litigation, particularly discovery, pre- and post-trial motions, appeals, and writs.
Jack's recent matters include defeating a class certification motion on behalf of a notable apartment leasing company. Jack assisted in demonstrating that the case was not appropriate for class treatment in light of the fact that purported class members did not meet the necessary elements to establish claims against the company.
