Mr. Frederick prepared and argued, in the Superior Court of Pennsylvania, the seminal case Shiner v. Ralston, 2013 PA Super 33, 64 A.3d 1 (Pa. Super.

Mr. Frederick scored a significant victory when the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit vacated a district court's order dismissing a proposed consumer rights class action lawsuit against Ambit Energy. In Silvis v. Ambit Energy, et al., Defendant Ambit Energy is accused of charging exorbitant electricity rates and breaching its contract with Ms. Silvis and the Proposed Class by failing to set its rates based on the factors outlined in its contract.
