Our litigation practice consists of two primary elements. The first element is civil litigation. We frequently represent plaintiffs and defendants in all manners of civil litigation, including business and contract disputes, foreclosures, collections, property damage claims, business torts, employment discrimination, wage and hour claims, overtime compensation, landlord/tenant issues, federal court social security disability appeals, oil and gas disputes, such as partition and quiet title issues, and more. We are licensed in both the state and federal courts, and have litigated cases in the Federal Courts of California, Colorado, Indiana, Kansas, and North Carolina. Furthermore, we have experience in litigating federal appeals before the Kansas and California District Courts and the Fourth, Seventh, Ninth, and Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Consumer Protection Lawsuits
The second element of our litigation practice is consumer protection. At Eron Law, we have successfully pursued many cases involving lender abuses. Common examples of such abuses include collecting debts that have already been paid, collecting debts through illegal harassment at work and threats of force or prison, improper credit reporting, repossession and sale of collateral without proper notice, collecting stale debts, collecting debts while a debtor is in bankruptcy, or collecting discharged debts. These practices are governed by many laws, including the Kansas Consumer Protection Act (KCPA), the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), the automatic stay in bankruptcy, and the discharge in bankruptcy. Additionally, the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) affords protection to consumers with home mortgages. In most cases, the applicable law permits the consumer to recover attorneys’ fees for prosecuting such lawsuits. We frequently take consumer protection cases on a contingency fee basis (we do not get paid unless you win), and have obtained substantial awards for our consumer protection clients in the last three years.
