CAOC is an organization of more than 3,000 attorneys who represent plaintiffs/consumers who seek responsibility from wrongdoers...

  • Consumers injured or killed by defective products or drugs;
  • People who suffer discrimination because of age, gender, disability or race;
  • Those injured or killed because of another's negligent acts;
  • Citizens whose civil rights have been violated;
  • Workers who have been fired unjustly or injured on the job;
  • Investors and others wronged by financial institutions (including failed savings and loans);
  • Insureds whose lives fall apart when an insurance company acts in bad faith and in violation of its own contract;
  • Patients who have been damaged personally and financially by negligent professionals.

In each case, the person the CAOC member represents faces an opponent with far more power and access to resources: polluters, governments, insurance companies, automobile manufacturers, and banks. CAOC members take cases they view as worthy, invest their own resources in developing and taking such cases to court, often over a several year period, and are paid only from those cases which are successful.
