The employment lawyers at Halunen Law take a stand for employees who have been discriminated against either by race discrimination, disability, discrimination, gender or sex discrimination, sexual orientation discrimination, or age discrimination.

Halunen Law also practices consumer protection law, through class action lawsuits. These cases are brought on behalf of consumers where individually the damages are minimal, perhaps only a dollar or two, or where a large number of consumers have suffered a similar harm. Many times companies are not held accountable for their illegal practices, and our consumer protection lawyers work with individuals in Ramsey county to protect their rights. Our class action attorneys help consumers take a stand against defective products, warranty violations, misleading labels, fraudulent statements, false products claims. Class actions start with one person or a small group of people and are brought on behalf of those individuals and a class of people who have had similar experiences. A major advantage of a class action lawsuit is that it can achieve justice and financial recovery for many people when it would be too expensive for a single individual to challenge a company’s bad conduct.

Under the False Claims Act a qui tam lawsuit may be brought by an individual citizen on behalf of the government and is entitled to significant compensation for exposing government fraud. Our team of whistleblower attorneys has recovered over $1 billion dollars on behalf of our clients and the government.
