A new and better way to resolve any dispute – large or small

People claim is a totally new way to resolve disputes and complaints against businesses, professionals, landlords, employers, or anyone else who’s treated you unfairly – all online and without costly lawyers, courts, or time-consuming processes.

More than 50,000 businesses and consumers have used PeopleClaim to get their cases heard, get resolution, and avoid the expense and complication of traditional legal processes.

Finally: affordable access to justice for everyone and every case

While getting your case resolved will depend on the case details, reasonableness of your demands, and other factors, PeopleClaim gives you an effective and extremely low-cost first-line resolution option that puts the power of the court of public opinion on your side. We’ve helped thousands of consumers, patients, employees, and others get justice – in many cases after they were told that they had no chance of winning. Our goal is to provide online access to justice at a fraction of the cost of traditional legal processes. We’re leveling the playing field for everyone, regardless of their financial or legal resources.

"It had been two months and she'd avoided us completely – and then the next day after I made a PeopleClaim she got back to me right away. If I hadn't had PeopleClaim I would have been out several hundred dollars."

"I know I didn't have any idea that I would have won the case, especially so quickly. They actually did something that I thought was impossible, and I'm thrilled."

"I filed a claim on Thursday afternoon; on Monday morning the corporate headquarters called and said 'We'd love to assist you and of course we'll give you a new computer.' It gave me terrific leverage."

PeopleClaim is the best thing since bacon...I mean it! I got very fast results.

I'm really glad I found you guys and did something because this company really does make you feel like you've been manipulated and taken advantage of. You guys do great work and it's really important in this time of deregulation, mergers and monopolies for customers to join together and fight back with a voice of their own. Thanks again.

Hi thank you so much, I was ready to go to small claims court when I saw your site and thought I would give it a try. I heard from the owner of that Repair shop shortly after he got your E-mail, and he set up a time to bring the finished clock back and did bring it and got his payment. I could tell he wasn't happy, but I think without PeopleClaim, we would still be waiting for the return of the clock, if I had read some of the reviews I saw of him on google, sadly after the fact, I would have looked for another repair place, and I would not recommend this place to anyone no matter how good the work maybe, the owner seems to have some sort of issue. thanks again PeopleClaim.
