What We've Done

The below list includes a few examples of the type of results we have gotten recently for our clients, without adjustment for fees, costs, or medical liens. Over the last thirty years, we have settled many thousands of cases, far too many to list on this website.

Accounts of recent trials, verdicts, and settlements contained on this website are intended to illustrate the experience of the firm in a variety of litigation areas. Each case is unique, and the results in one case do not necessarily indicate the quality or value of any other case. Client’s names are omitted to protect confidentiality.

Premises Liability/Personal Injury

Confidential Settlement

A tragic case, involving our lovely 22 year-old client, a car wreck, and a catastrophic shooting. Client was involved in a child custody dispute with father of 14 month old daughter. As she was leaving the premises, the boyfriend crashed his truck into our client's car, making it impossible for her to open the door and exit her vehicle. The boyfriend then walked over the hood of his truck after removing a rifle from the vehicle. He presented the weapon right next to our client's left cheek, threatening her not to leave. She did not believe the gun was loaded, so he pulled the trigger. Tragically, the rifle was loaded. The bullet traveled from our client's left cheek and exited from under her right eye. She was instantly and permanently blinded in both eyes. Their daughter, sitting in a baby seat only a few feet away, was thankfully uninjured. We reached a quick settlement for the automobile insurance policy limits maintained on the boyfriend's truck. However, a lawsuit was filed against the boyfriend and his mother, the owner of the premises. Case eventually settled for a confidential amount, including amounts for the daughter and an older son. Our valiant client has made great efforts to lead a full life despite losing her sight.

Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect - Medical Malpractice

Confidential Settlement

Elderly client with Alzheimer's disease was a long-time resident of a local nursing home. Nursing home knew that client exhibited signs of delirium, was prone to wandering, and recognized his potential for elopement, thus fitting him with a wandergard. Client exited nursing home unattended through a door that was not alarmed and/or had an inoperative alarm, so that despite wearing a wandergard, his departure did not trigger an alarm. Client roamed the vicinity of the nursing home for the next day unattended, disoriented, and exposed to inclement weather conditions, before suffering a fatal heart attack in a wooded area about a mile from the nursing home.
