Motor Vehicle Accident (2012)
My client was hit by a car while he was stopped at a stop sign. The other driver's insurance company refused to pay a fair settlement. We filed a lawsuit and started to prepare for trial. The insurance company then paid the full amount of the driver's insurance policy.
Outcome: The insurance company paid its policy limits.
Limited Liability Company v. Lender (2011)
A company stopped paying on its loan for a commercial property. Our client started to foreclose the property. When the company sold the property, our client was paid and our client released its lien on the property. The company then improperly sought to have our client pay its attorneys' fees.
Outcome: The court dismissed the company's lawsuit and the company's attorney paid our attorneys' fees.
Credit Card Company v. Bank Account Holder (2010)
A credit card company froze a bank account belonging to our client, a person that did not have a credit card with the company. After the company refused a reasonable settlement offer, we requested a hearing for our client.
Outcome: The funds were released and the credit card company paid our attorneys' fees.
Deadbeat Ex-Husband (2009)
The ex-husband owed over $200,000 in unpaid child support. Ex-husband was named as a beneficiary of his parents' trust. The trustee, ex-husband's sister, refused to pay anything to my client. Several motions were filed and a hearing was held.
Outcome: The court ordered the trustee to pay ex-husband's share of the trust to my client.
Motor Vehicle Accident (2008)
In a low-speed collision, my client caused minor damage to another car at a light. Plaintiffs claimed severe injuries. After Plaintiffs refused our settlement offer, the case went to a jury trial.
Outcome: The jury awarded Plaintiffs a small amount for medical expenses but nothing for pain and suffering. The judge awarded my client a larger amount for court costs.
