Attorneys and other consumer advocates who deal with junk faxes
IMPORTANT: If you decide you want to take action, we recommend you
FIRST join the Yahoo group and see what others are doing. See the Junk fax Q&A
for details on how to join the Yahoo group.
Many attorneys may work on a contingency basis.
However, there may also be laws that can award you attorney fees as well,
e.g., California CC 1780(d), 47 USC 206 (if the broadcaster is a common
carrier), and California CCP 1021.5.
Many of these attorneys are inundated with calls. Some prefer to be contacted
by email. Here is the information to be sure you include in your email:
- Contact information, at least including address, preferably also including
email and phone number (these folks would probably be most likely not to
want to give out this information);
- Specific complaint—junk faxes or prerecorded messages or beeping
messages (fax machine mating calls);
- Date & time of complaint;
- Identity of person/entity that you believe violated the T.C.P.A.;
- Your information supporting No. 5;
- Whether you consent to being contacted and giving a statement to support
- Whether you consent to being a witness and giving live testimony if need
- Whether you are interested in bringing your own case (serving as a

Leading junk fax lawyer representing plaintiffs, with extensive experience.
Dozens of cases litigated or in progress, including class actions. David Amkraut
and his brother are also the lead plaintiffs in the landmark California case
Amkraut v. fax.com. In Amkraut (combined on appeal with Kaufman v. ACS) the
Court of Appeal allowed individuals to sue junk faxers in California state
courts, and knocked out the standard defenses raised by Fax.com and others.
David Amkraut is also plaintiffs’ attorney or plaintiff in most of the
companion "Kaufman-related" cases, presently being litigated.
The firm handles both individual junk fax claims and class actions. The firm’s
practice also emphasizes, among other things, serious personal injury cases,
copyright cases and class actions involving consumer fraud.

Having been a civil litigation attorney for over a dozen years, I have
handled hundreds of cases [including numerous jury trials as sole/lead
counsel], dozens of which have involved consumer rights and related issues.
Formerly with the national law firm of Epstein, Becker and Green, I ventured
out on my own in 2002 to focus more on consumer, credit/lending [TILA, FDCPA,
FCRA, RESPA, FCBA, etc.], landlord-tenant, warranty, internet [CAN-SPAM Act,
cybersquatting] and telecommunications cases, including those involving the
TCPA [Junk Faxes, Pre-Records]. I have also been involved in Class Actions
pertaining to consumer rights and protection, and I am currently co-counsel
for the Plaintiffs [Class] in a Class Action pending in Federal Court, which
challenges the constitutionality of Fulton County, GA's mandatory Electronic
Filing scheme [McCurdy et al. v. Harper, Fulton County et al.](ND GA). I

We have litigated numerous individual and class-action junk fax cases in the

settlements. We were the first law firm in the Chicago area to win a ruling
finding that the TCPA doesn’t violate the First Amendment. With our co-counsel
we have developed great expertise in locating junk faxers and obtaining the
often hard to locate transmission lists often needed to bring junk faxers to
justice in class cases. We are one of the few law firms to force the notorious
junk faxer, fax.com to pay more than token settlement monies before it went out
