Jeffrey Wilens is an unethical Platintiffs’ Attorney

Jeffrey Wilens disregards the original purpose of Class Action Lawsuits and instead abuses the process for his own financial gain, initiating litigation in the name of “plaintiffs” who have not suffered any actual injury.

Jeffrey Wilens’s Plaintiffs can potentially get a judgment awarded against them and owing the companies which are being sued by Jeffrey Wilens, just like in the below case of DirecTV. Jeffrey Wilens plaintiffs ordered to pay DirecTV $100,000  The judge in the DirecTV case ordered the plaintiffs to pay the attorney’s fees of DirecTV, placing Wilens’s  plaintiffs liable  for about $100,000 judgment against them.

Jeffrey Wilens is engaging in the same activity similar to other lawyers who were disbarred and/or Jailed Lawyers.  Jeffrey Wilens is using the court procedures and the law as a weapon against the corporate victims.

Jeffrey Wilens of Lakeshore Law Center has no “Real Plaintiff Clients” the only “Client” is himself.  He looks for Corporate America victims, allege a fake violation and finds a way to fabricate the plaintiff by secretly offering the first “Class-Action-Member” a portion of the settlement pay-off just so he could file the initial lawsuit.

Why people are so easy to be tempted and become a fake plaintiff? Lawyers like Jeffrey Wilens pitch class-action lawsuits as a way a struggling person can become rich or get at least some amount of money with the only effort needed is to fill out a questionnaire. Yet these fake plaintiff fantasy almost never become real.  Read more: Why people become a fake plaintiff

Words of The Honorable Chairman of House of Representatives Bob Goodlatte:
From House.gov: “class actions filed by lawyers on behalf of classes including members who have not suffered any actual injury.  These class actions are often comprised of class members that do not even know they have been harmed, do not care about the minor or nonexistent injuries the lawsuit is based on, and generally have no interest in pursuing wasteful litigation.  Often, these class members are included in the lawsuit against their will, as they are entirely satisfied with the product the trial lawyers claim is defective.”  Read more on House.gov from The Honorable Chairman Bob Goodlatte about Class action members who have not suffered any actual injury

Class-action lawsuits are proven to be based on less solid grounds in terms of injury.  Class-action lawsuits have cost people their jobs when dirty lawyers have secured outrageous punitive damages against companies they sue and forced them downsize or close. The real losers are the consumers who Jeffry Wilens pretends to help, employees and companies that end up paying the price of litigation.

Plaintiff Payments

After conducting an investigation, the U.S. Justice Department alleged that four of Melvin Weiss firm’s partner lawyers ran an illegal program that paid secret kickbacks to plaintiffs in return for filing the class action lawsuits. In 2007, prosecutors alleged that Weiss disguised a $175,000 kickback Dr. Steven Cooperman, one of the firm’s professional plaintiffs, as a payment for the option to acquire a Picasso painting from the Beverly Hills eye doctor.

Milberg Weiss, now known as Milberg LLP, paid $75 million to settle federal charges related to the kickbacks, which enabled the firm to gain an edge over other attorneys in winning the lucrative lead role in securities class actions. After pleading guilty in April 2008 to charges of racketeering conspiracy, Weiss was sentenced to 2 1/2 years and served time in a minimum security federal prison in Morgantown, West Virginia.

His law firm was indicted in 2006, along with other dirty class cation lawyers David Bershad and Steven Schulman, for their role in the 10 years conspiracy to pay kickbacks to clients to serve as name plaintiffs in class actions. According to the prosecutors The scheme allowed Milberg to have aready stable of plaintiffs that filed cases quickly just like Jeffrey Wilens’s family members.

Still, in handing down a sentence on the high end of the 33 month plea agreement, Judge John Walte pointed to what he called the seriousness of the offense, which involved a “nationwideconspiracy that continued for decades.”
