What’s the difference between a run-of-the-mill Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) case and a multi-million dollar TCPA class action? It might not be as much as you think. This webinar will help novice to intermediate TCPA practitioners identify which fact patterns best lend themselves to class treatment under the TCPA.

What You Will Learn

  • What the right sort of questions are to ask of your potential clients during the intake process
  • How to identify viable defendants and which resources you might consider when conduction your initial research
  • Where to go once you’ve identified the next TCPA class action

Speaker

Scott D. Owens is the founder of Scott D. Owens, P.A. which since 2011 has recovered millions of dollars on behalf of consumers throughout the United States. Scott has devoted his legal practice to defending consumers against intrusive and often fraudulent methods employed by telemarketers, text message spammers, and debt collectors. His deep commitment to pro-consumer litigation was spurred by his previous career at a debt collection law firm, where he witnessed how deceptive and aggressive business practices burden the lives of average citizens.  Scott has been litigating TCPA lawsuits in federal court for more than ten years. Scott argued the matter of Breslow v. Wells Fargo Bank, N.A, 755 F.3d 1265 (11th Cir. June 9, 2014) before the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. Since that time, Scott has successfully litigated dozens of TCPA cases and served as counsel on a multitude of TCPA class actions.
