Hundreds of thousands of contracts are signed each day. Printed on these contracts, buried in the fine print, are terms that say the unsuspecting consumer is agreeing to give up their Constitutionally-given right to a trial by jury. The alternative, arbitration.
The arbitration process can be a positive one for consumers, but when a corporation forces the arbitration provision on a consumer in such a way that favors the corporation at the expense of the consumer’s claims, this process becomes frustrating and unfair. Our firm has successfully sued to have unfair arbitration agreements declared unfair by state and federal courts in New Mexico, allowing consumers to have their day in court. The decision whether or not to pursue a lawsuit in arbitration or if a particular arbitration agreement is enforceable is a complex one. Contact our office today. We will be glad to take a look at your situation and see if we can help.
