Jones, Wolf & Kapasi, LLC (“JWK”) argued and obtained from the United States District Court For the District of New Jersey an Order granting final approval of a class action settlement in a 15 U.S.C. 1692 et seq, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (“FDCPA”) case against Fein, Such, Kahn & Shepard, P.C.

Wolf were certified as Class Counsel. In addition, the National Consumer Law Center (“NCLC”) was approved as the cy pres recipient.
