Class Action Suit
We’re here to fight for you.
Class actions are lawsuits where individuals with similar claims are grouped together and represented collectively in one court action. This procedure promotes justice for individuals who have faced important losses and need the collective weight of their common claims to make the litigation feasible.
Class action suits can be filed against companies for some of the following reasons:
- Dangerous pharmaceuticals
- Harmful or defective products
- Toxic environmental practices
- Unfair employment practices
- Unfair or fraudulent consumer practices
Our team has almost 70 years of combined experience and we are currently engaged in representing over 50 families in a class action suit against The City of Hamilton contending that design and construction of the RHVP was done negligently and without using acceptable construction standards.
If you believe you are involved in a situation that could warrant a class action suit, please contact us for a free consultation. We will review your case and offer advice on moving forward with your claim.
“When big industries, institutions or municipalities break laws and hide information that causes pain and hurt to victims, I take it personally to right these wrongs. I will stand up to, and fight any corporation that endangers or diminishes the lives of others.”

Rob was extremely helpful and definitely went the extra mile to help me out. Rob and his staff were very compassionate towards my situation and took the load off my shoulders. He helped me get through the whole case – it was my first mediation and with Rob it was really easy. The whole process from beginning to end was very smooth and very stress-free. I’ll definitely be using him again in the future. Thank you, Rob!
Rob was great. I initially had another lawyer who was totally unavailable and left me floundering. I fired that lawyer and met with Rob, and the difference was incredible. In the years that he handled my case, I couldn’t believe the availability – he came to my home in Dunnville if that was more convenient for me, he was really accommodating and sympathetic to my situation. I was so impressed with him that my girlfriend fired her lawyer and came to Rob too. She had a brain injury, so it was great to know she was safe and in good hands when I couldn’t be there. It’s rare to find a lawyer with that kind of honesty and integrity. He’s a good guy and he’ll fight for you all the way. I would recommend him to absolutely anyone. Choosing the right lawyer is the most important decision you can make. If you don’t like your lawyer, you have the right to switch – and you’ll never regret choosing Rob Hooper.
I’d like to thank you, Mr. Robert Hooper, and everyone else at the Hooper Law Office for everything that has been done for me and to win my case. I feel relieved now that this long overdue case has now been settled and I can put this unfortunate accident behind me. Once again thank you for everything that has been done.
Thank you so much for all of your assistance over these past several months. You and Mr. Hooper have been such a great blessing to us. Thank you again!
When I went to Rob to help me out with my car accident, he became more of a friend. I was frustrated with therapy and on the verge of depression, and he totally made me feel comfortable. He made me feel really important, like I was top priority. Going through mediation he was very well prepared. I had complete confidence in him, and he made me feel confident in myself too. Above all, having had experiences with lawyers, I had a really good sense of his integrity. He’s very approachable with a good sense of humour. I’ve recommended him to my friends and family.
