Welcome to my blog, One Rock, a resource for individual consumers, employees and homeowners fighting to preserve their rights and protect their property.

I am an attorney who has represented thousands of homeowners and consumers over the last ten years in Alabama and California, and I have been amazed at some of the tactics that unethical and just plain greedy companies employ to protect their bottom line, often at the expense of the individual consumer or customer. 

From insurance companies who practice "deny first, justify later" customer service, to manufacturers and retailers who sell products with false or misleading labels, to companies who force their customers into expensive and unfair arbitration forums to resolve even the smallest dispute, to employers who refuse to treat all employees fairly, to companies who slip unauthorized charges onto your bill, to termite companies who promise protection but don't inspect fully or treat properly, the range of unethical business practices can sometimes seem never-ending. I hope to shine some light onto these practices and help you find ways to fight back.

In any battle with an individual, big companies have lots of advantages: size, money, resources, advertising, an army of employees and lawyers. But they are not unbeatable -- not by a long shot. It only takes one rock to bring down a giant, and this blog is meant to help you find that one shiny stone you need to fight the giants in your life.

This blog, powered by one voice but inspired by the voices of many, is my rock heaved against the mighty giants.
