Michael S. Burg, Burg Simpson founding shareholder and author of “Trial By Fire, One Man’s Battle of End Corporate Greed and Save Lives”, was interviewed by Kimberly Atkins in a live interview on C-SPAN on September 23, 2017. In the interview, Michael discussed consumer rights in the wake of the Equifax data breach.

“We have to get rid of these arbitration clauses. They are absolutely a horrible thing for consumers. You need to have your day in court and to be able to have class actions. Anyone who is a consumer advocate, whether you are on the right or left, all should come together and say, ‘These banks should not be allowed to limit our ability to have access to the courts,'” Burg said.
