Tables Turned on Small Claims Law Practice

"BOSTON -- A Lowell lawyer with a reputation in small-claims court for being the nemesis of those with unpaid debts is on the other end of a lawsuit.

A federal judge in May certified a class-action lawsuit against attorney Robert R. White and his firm, Levy & White, over the way he calculates the interest on debts owed. U.S. District Court Judge Indira Talwani also granted the two local women who filed the lawsuit -- Carol Lannan, of Lowell, and Ann Winn, of Chelmsford -- a partial judgment in some of their claims. The lawsuit is pending."
