 No.611129

The West Virginia law firm of Bailey & Glasser wants its class clients to know they are eligible for an award as a result of a $61 million verdict against Dish Network for its marketing calls.

Lawyer John Barrett and his colleagues are having a hard time getting their message across when they call to deliver the news, the Wall Street Journal reports. The clients are hanging up before the lawyers or a paralegal can explain, or they are hanging up in disbelief after hearing the figures.

Barrett and co-counsel Brian Glaser won a $20.4 million verdict against Dish last year, an amount that was tripled by the judge. As a result, more than 18,000 people who received the calls are each eligible receive $2,400 to $30,000, before payment of attorney fees and expenses.

The firm began making the calls after fewer than 8 percent of clients who received a letter about the verdict failed to return the required forms.

Keith Skriver of Arizona is in line to receive $30,000 for receiving 25 calls from Dish Network, according to the Journal. He didn’t respond to a voice mail left by the firm until he asked a friend who was a lawyer to check it out. Skriver got the go-ahead and signed up for his award, but is taking a wait-and-see approach.

If the money doesn’t materialize, “I don’t need to go to Paris anymore,” he told the newspaper.

the lawyers can probably take the list of people that actually go all the way through this process and sell it again too as people who will reliably engage with cold callers

Depends on how many phone calls they got

$3000 to $30,000


 No.611168

>>611132

Note that each time the (((lawyer))) phones them, he writes down another 1 hour at a thousand bucks per hour to his bill.

In a few days, they'll owe him more than the 60,000,000.

>>611129 That's so crazy, this sounds like some kind of joke article.

Honestly, I don't have people calling me for any good reason, so I quite enjoy the attention telemarketers give me.

So, if fewer than 8% failed to return the forms, that means more than 92% did return the letters. That's a really impressive return rate. Why on earth would they bother with the calls if the letters were that effective?

Or, maybe, you suck at using English properly.


 No.611184

Maybe they think it's a scam.
