National Consumer Law Center Issues Online Petitition Regarding Forced Arbitration

The National Consumer Law Center and the National Association of Consumer Attorneys have issued an online petition in advance of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s final arbitration study. The petition urges the nation’s largest financial institutions to discontinue including mandatory arbitration agreements in consumer contracts. The online petition comes as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (“CFPB”) completes its final arbitration study.

The CFPB has the authority to prohibit or severely limit the situations in which it is appropriate for lenders and other large commercial actors to require ordinary consumers to sign mandatory arbitration clauses. Opponents of mandatory forced arbitration contend that arbitration often prevents consumers from having any opportunity to seek redress of grievances against large commercial actors, such as lenders, financial services providers, mortgage servicers, and telecommunications providers. Interested consumers can learn more about the petition and the CFPB’s arbitration study via these links:

“We would like to express our gratitude to you (Hunt Willis) for accepting our case. First of all, when I called this law firm, a very sweet and kind lady answered the telephone and gave me assurance by asking and going over the accident with me, while my husband was in the hospital. I felt assured I was doing the right thing for us. She was so helpful in so many ways. What a professional lady. Secondly, we are much pleased that you have settled this case with the insurance company to receive the proper amount to assist us in so many ways. My husband and I are very happy with you and the firm in handling our case. You made us have confidence in your professional and integrity along with your assistant Ms. Routh, when you both came to see us in our home, in which we saw your compassion and thoughtfulness at that time. We will never forget what you have done for us, and we thank the lord for directing me to contact this firm. I’m glad I did.”
