Financial Services Class Action Attorneys
Highly Experienced Class Action Litigators
As consumers, whether we are borrowers, homeowners, or other customers of financial institutions, we are protected by numerous state and federal laws that prohibit deceptive and unfair practices by banks and lenders. When a financial institution or one of its employees or representatives fails to uphold their fiduciary duty or acts negligently or intentionally and wrongs its customers, a civil suit can be brought to help wronged parties recoup their losses. When a significant number of people suffer similar harm, a class action may be brought against the at-fault party.
McCune Law Group, McCune Wright Arevalo Vercoski Kusel Weck Brandt APC (MLG), has a history of aggressive class action representation that spans over 30 years. Serving the Inland Empire and the entire U.S., we have represented consumers in financial services class action litigation involving overbilling, mortgage fraud, and more. One of our most notable cases involved a $203 million verdict in a class action against Wells Fargo for unfair overdraft fees imposed on its California customers. We have recovered over a billion dollars in verdicts and settlements, across our practice areas.
What Are Financial Services?
Financial services refer to a broad range of products and services that are offered by financial institutions to individuals and businesses to manage their money, investments, and other financial transactions. This includes services such as banking, insurance, investments, financial planning, and wealth management. Financial services are crucial for ensuring the smooth functioning of the economy, as they facilitate the movement of funds between individuals and businesses and provide the necessary tools and expertise to manage financial risks and opportunities. At McCune Law Group, we understand the importance of financial services and provide legal advice and representation to consumer clients in business with financial institutions, including banks, insurance companies, and investment firms.

Unfair and Illegal Overdraft and NSF Fees
One of the most common ways banks and credit unions make money is by charging their consumers exorbitant overdraft and nonsufficient funds (NSF) fees. When a customer makes a transaction but does not have enough money to cover it, the financial institution they bank with can either approve the transaction or decline it. When a transaction is approved despite the consumer’s inability to pay, the bank will pay the excess cost and charge an overdraft fee to the customer’s account for their trouble. If the bank were to decline the transaction, the consumer would be unable to purchase the item and would be charged an NSF fee.
However, financial institutions have concocted numerous ways to unfairly charge their customers overdraft and NSF fees. Their methods include removing account funds before posting deposits, resequencing transactions, automatically “opting in” to the bank’s overdraft program, and more. These practices unfairly prey on those who are least able to afford exorbitant fees.
