Getting Ripped-Off and don’t know what to do about. Consumer self-defense as told by someone in the legal trenches: Yes you as citizen can fight back against rich and powerful and ……..win!

Saturday, May 2nd, 2009 and
Saturday, May 9th, 2009 from 7pm-9pm
Buffalo Wings at the party on the 9th!

Mr Monroe was featured in a recent episode of The Story from American Public Media. Here’s the excerpt:

Derek Monroe was a business consultant brokering deals between U.S. and foreign companies. He enjoyed the work, but things changed when a U.S. client used Derek as a pawn to dupe a Japanese businessman who Derek respected. Derek protested, lost the account, and started thinking long and hard about the injustices he believes are perpetrated by corporate America.

Derek now spends much of his time taking large companies, including the big banks, to court when they don’t honor their word. He talks with Dick about finding strength in fighting the small fight.
