My name is Dan Schlanger and I head the consumer protection practice at Kakalec & Schlanger, LLP. My practice focuses on class actions and other litigation aimed at vindicating the rights of consumers, including cases involving unfair collection practices, predatory lending, hidden fees, auto fraud, false advertising, usury, fraud and breach of warranty.
I regularly handle cases brought under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, the Truth In Lending Act, the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act, RICO, and laws barring false advertising, deceptive consumer conduct, usury and other abuses.
I also have extensive experience representing consumers in collection actions, including actions involving credit card debt, medical billing, lines of credit, auto loans, home loans, personal guarantees and other debts.
I received my law degree, cum laude, from Harvard Law School, and received my undergraduate degree from Carleton College, magna cum laude, in 1994. Prior to joining Kakalec & Schlanger's predecessor firm as a partner in 2007, I worked as a staff attorney at the Legal Aid Society of Cleveland. Prior to that, I clerked for the Honorable R. Lanier Anderson, III on the 11th Circuit, U.S. Court of Appeals.
I have had the immense good fortune to be able to make my living doing something I am passionate about: helping consumers who have been treated unfairly or victimized by overly aggressive tactics.
