I’ll never forget as a young teen coming home one day and seeing my mom sitting alone and sad. It disturbed me to see her like that. I said, “Is everything ok, Mom?”
She replied, “Yes. I just went to get an oil change and I left paying
$3,700 for something I don’t think needed repair. It’s ok.”
My mom was a hard-working teacher and $3,700 wasn’t chump change.
It’s the reason I became a consumer-rights attorney and still am
despite being a full-time filmmaker. I hate seeing people get ripped
off. It brings the ‘Batman’ side to me like no other.
I don’t sue good people or good companies. I sue bad people and bad companies.
I sue a dishonest caterer who overcharges a film production. I sue
Netflix for failing to bring in a Christian movie due to fraud. I sue an
airlines for leaving a customer stranded at 4 am due to their fault.
As a born-again Christian, I can still love the people that we file
lawsuits against. But I can’t let them rip off people. I like Hosea
12:6: “But you must return to your God; maintain love and justice, and
wait for your God always.”
