Right now there is no one website were you can find out about all open class actions. If you think there might be a certified class action lawsuit that concerns some injury you have suffered and want to find out how to contact the attorney for the class, the best place to start looking is the Internet. Attorneys involved in class action lawsuits often create web pages that give information about the lawsuit, the class certification, and how to contact relevant people. Unless the case is very small, it will probably either have a web page or be listed on various sites that list class action suits. You can usually locate these with web searches for the relevant product or company and the term class action.

Out of curiosity, if there are more than one law firms vying to become the class action attorney, how do you know which law firm to sign-up with?

The judge in charge of the case will ask the law firms to submit proposals as to why their firm should be in charge of the class action. Usually, the firm with the most plaintiffs, the firm with the deepest attorney bench, and teh firm with the best website wins. Its a popularity contest.
