Be a Smart Legal Consumer

Our legal system should be respected and work for everyone. Instead, it has become a weapon too often used to make money rather than deliver justice.

Lawsuit abuse increases the price we pay for goods and services, consumes valuable tax dollars, increases health care costs, forces small businesses to shut their doors, and threatens jobs and our economy.

When our system is abused, we all pay, and we all lose. It’s time for us to fix this problem. Together we can fight to end lawsuit abuse.
