Welcome to the law offices of
Rob Williamson & Kim Williams
We are a consumer class action firm representing consumers in various types of class action cases in state and federal court. Examples include representing clients in class action cases against businesses that make “robo-calls” to cellular telephones, residences and Washington businesses for commercial solicitation or collection purposes and/or businesses that commit “do not call” violations. We also represent consumers in cases against businesses that send commercial solicitation text messages to cellular telephones, and those that violate laws regulating email solicitation. We handle class actions against banks that charge illegal fees when loans are paid off, where the charges are not allowed by the deeds of trust and violate the Consumer Protection Act. We file claims on behalf of homeowners against escrow companies for charges that are improper. We also represent workers in class actions against their employers for claims involving wage and hour disputes, including overtime pay. In short, we represent class representatives and classes of Washington and other consumers in cases seeking to vindicate their legal rights on a variety of fronts, and are always open to discussing new potential cases and concepts.
