False advertising can involve statements that are either false, or which are misleading because they do not mention important facts one would expect to be told. For example, claiming that a product is “all natural” when it contains artificial preservatives, claiming that a product is “organic” when it was treated with pesticides, claiming that a service is “free” when there is an associated cost, or failing to disclose a fee.
For example, in this article, you can learn more about a consumer class action lawsuit Mr. Azadian is prosecuting against Starbucks for overcharging customers for breakfast sandwiches. The Azadian Law Group is dedicated to protecting California Consumers against the nation’s largest companies.

There are times when employers wrong not just a single employee, but a large number of workers or applicants. When this happens, the lawsuits may be brought together into one large case, called a class action. Today, the Azadian Law Group, PC wants to discuss what these cases are like when it comes to employment law and what they could mean for you. When you need a Los Angeles class actions attorney, you can count on us to be by your side.
A class action is a lawsuit brought by a smaller group of people (called the plaintiffs or class representatives) on behalf of a larger group of people who have experienced the same thing.
The goal of the lawsuit is to show that the actions of the employer (discrimination, harassment, etc.) against the smaller group of plaintiffs is the same thing that has happened to the larger group of people.
Class actions can be powerful tools, allowing for individuals to combine their resources to have an effect on a larger company.
Due to the size and complexity of most class action lawsuits, these cases typically take longer to make it to trial. An investigation into whether or not a class action can be maintained will be conducted first, and this could take months.
The main elements of a class action deal with how many people are affected, the commonalities between their cases, the desired results, and the overall interests of the class.
