Attorney Roosevelt N. Nesmith

Roosevelt N. Nesmith has litigated complex consumer and commercial lawsuits in federal and state courts in New York, New Jersey and throughout the country for over 25 years. He has represented plaintiffs in more than 10 consumer class action cases in just the past 4 years. Class members have recovered millions of dollars in settlements from defendants in these actions. He also represents employees in in class and collective actions under the Fair Labor Standards Act and state wage and hour laws. Mr. Nesmith’s practice is not limited to class actions. He also represents individuals that have been harmed by the wrongful conduct of financial institutions in mortgage and insurance-related transactions.

Mr. Nesmith was a senior litigator at the New York law firm of Patterson, Belknap, Webb & Tyler for 10 years. There he represented Fortune 500 corporations in complex business disputes, including a principal defendant in one of the largest class action cases, In re Brand Name Prescription Drug Antirust Litigation. Mr. Nesmith’s client took the case to trial and secured a directed verdict in its favor. Mr. Nesmith also worked at the firm of New Jersey firm of Lite DePalma & Greenburg and in the private sector before focusing his practice on representing individuals and consumers at his own firm.  

Our Montclair Office:

We are readily accessible to clients at our office in Montclair, New Jersey. Technology has reduced the need to aggregate talented professionals in central cities. Our clients don’t have to travel to New York or Philadelphia to access lawyers experienced in complex litigation to handle their important matters. We are able to meet with clients in the comfort of a modern local office, yet we can represent their interests in any court in the country.

Cost Is Not A Barrier to Our Serving You

We represent our clients on a contingent fee basis. That means our clients are not responsible for paying our legal fees in most cases. That is because the cases we file are based on statutes that provide for “fee shifting,” which requires that defendants pay the legal fees for a prevailing plaintiff, or in class actions that provide that fees are awarded to class counsel from a common fund created upon a settlement or judgment. We receive a legal fee only if we are successful on behalf of our clients.
