Victory on Appeal

We are proud to announce that we have won our very first appellate case.  The case dealt with a default judgment that the trial court refused to set aside.  We raised several issues on appeal, each of which we believed was a valid reason to overturn the judgment.  However, the appellate court only focused on one central issue: plaintiff’s failure to properly serve a statement of damages prior to seeking a default.

Now, our clients can have a fresh start in trial court and fight their case.  A link to the court’s unpublished opinion can be found here.

Uninsured Motorist Claim – $25,000

Recently, we had a case involving a young woman who was hit in an intersection by an uninsured driver.  Luckily our client had the foresight to obtain uninsured motorist coverage prior to the crash.

We helped our client through the claims process with her carrier.  Although she did not have any significant injuries, we were able to obtain a settlement of $25,000, the full policy amount available, to compensate her for her pain and suffering.

This case is a great reminder of the importance of having uninsured motorist coverage.  Without it, our client would not likely have received anything.

Premises Liability Settlement – $170,000

We were privileged to represent a 50-year-old disabled veteran after his motorized wheelchair became lodged in a crack in the sidewalk outside of his apartment.  Although the case was difficult, we were able to prove that the apartment owners knew of the crack and yet failed to do any repairs, despite pleas from our client.

We managed to avoid the time and expense of litigation and settle the case prior to lawsuit for $170,000.  Now, our client is out of the apartment and in a safe, wheelchair friendly home.

The new website.

I am very excited.  I have finally overcome my fear and started my own website for my law practice.

I am very hopeful that this will be a platform to reach out to people, spread the word on important legal issues, and get my name out.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!-RKB
