Bio:

Mr. Little, a partner with Lippes Mathias Wexler Friedman and the firm’s Consumer Financial Services Litigation Practice Team Leader, focuses his practice primarily on commercial and business litigation matters including contractual disputes, shareholder derivative actions, claims asserted pursuant to the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act and real property litigation.

Additionally, Mr. Little devotes a significant amount of his time traveling the country defending creditors against individual and class claims that the creditors have violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).

Prior to joining Lippes Mathias Wexler Friedman in 2009, Mr. Little was an associate  attorney with Paul William Beltz PC, where he represented clients in personal injury matters. In his new practice, he  continues to successfully represent the interest of individuals who have suffered serious injuries as the result of the actions or negligence of others.
