    E22: Consumer Rights Talk: Guest Mike Landis

    E22: Consumer Rights Talk: Guest Mike Landis

    On the show today is Mike Landis, the litigation director of U.S. PIRG the Public Interest Research Group. What makes Mike particularly special is the diversity of his experience and depth of his resume at such a young age. Considering the fact that Mike is in his mid 30’s the list is impressive and includes two years volunteering in Honduras with the Peace Corps, a dual JD and Masters degree in international political economy and development, a state appellate court clerkship, a federal district court clerkship, two and a half years as a litigation associate at a large New Jersey law firm, and then of course, his current role as litigation director of PIRG.
    At PIRG, Mike’s job involves taking a macro view of issues facing the general public, most often from a consumer perspective. While most consumer rights attorneys are focusing individual client cases and relationships, Mike is looking for broad patterns where impact litigation can be achieved. PIRG pursues its own cases, but also provides a lot of support to a network of non-profit organizations across the country that are pursuing consumer protection cases.
    The story shows that anyone can move between the non-profit and private law sectors and that doing so can make you a more impactful and valuable asset to the consumer rights world.

    E18: Consumer Rights Talk: Guest Ron Burdge

    Ron Burdge is a trailblazer.  Ron started his legal career doing trial work at a small Ohio firm.  Early in his career the partners of his law firm handed Ron an auto fraud case.  The chance circumstance gave rise to a career that saw the rise of lemon laws and consumer rights in the auto industry.  A key to Ron’s success is his love of story telling and a gift for connecting with juries.

    In addition to excelling at litigation, Ron has a gift for marketing. As an early adopter of the internet, Ron acquired key domain names including www.ohiolemonlaw.com. He began posting videos on the internet early on and it helped to drive clients and business to his firm.

    Aside from influencing the growth of auto fraud litigation, Ron is the founder of the United States Consumer Law Attorney Fee Survey. The survey is hosted at www.attorneyfeestudy.com and gives a detailed assessment of hourly rates billed by attorneys broken down by years of practice, size of firm and geography. The survey is a key tool for consumer rights attorneys that work with fee shifting statutes. Cited in Federal Courts across the country, the survey has been critical to lawyers extending access to justice in an affordable way.
