Making a difference in the field of law:
Wilshire Law Firm

(3/2) Wilshire Law Firm has been making a difference in the field of law for the past ten years. Take, for example, when Apple Inc. admitted that they were intentionally slowing down older versions of iPhones after the launch of new models. Wilshire Law Firm was the first to file a class action against them. The lawsuit aims to protect the rights of customers who never gave explicit permission to Apple to alter their phones.

Founded by Bobby Saadian, the law firm also works on protecting the privacy of its clients. In 2017, Wilshire Law Firm filed a class action against the U.S. based apparel company, Brooks Brothers. The clothing firm admitted that it had been hacked and the private information of some of its customers were stolen. The data breach was eleven months long and effected retail outlets of Brook Brothers in the United States and Puerto Rico. The data taken included credit and debit card information.

Experts in the field of class action, the attorneys at Wilshire Law Firm are filing a class action against Sabre Data. Sabre Hospitality Solutions is a reservation system that is used by hotel booking systems all over the world. Between the months of August 2016 and March 2017, Sabre Data was breached. In the eight-month long period, personal and financial data of customers from over 35,000 hotels like the Four Seasons, Trump Hotels, Hard Rock International, and Loews Hotels was compromised. Wilshire seeks to get justice on behalf of hotel guests whose privacy was violated and were exposed to the risk of fraud and identity theft.

Attorneys from Wilshire Law Firm have filed mass tort cases against manufacturers whose products have caused harm. One such case involves filing a lawsuit against the makers of the transvaginal mesh device. These devices, also known as bladder slings, caused women to experience lower back pain, vaginal bleeding, scarring, and other effects. Some mesh manufacturers include Johnson & Johnson, American Medical Systems (AMS), and Boston Scientific.

Wilshire Law Firm has set up a nationwide scholarship. Twice a year, a first-generation law student is awarded for his/her contribution to the community and academic accomplishment. The law firm seeks to support the field of law at its nascent stage with this scholarship.
