Settlements and Verdicts

Our Results

One of the strengths of our firm is its willingness to take cases to trial when it is necessary to serve justice and the client’s interest. It is a reality that many lawyers and firms have little to no trial experience. Defense lawyers know who those lawyers are, and employ a strategy of waiting until the eve of trial to settle a case, expecting a discount.  Our firm does not hesitate to take a case to trial, trusting that a jury will fairly decide the case.  Many cases we resolve have confidentiality agreements which preclude listing the amounts of settlements here, but public results include the  $21,000,000 verdict in Aviles v. Maricopa County, which was the largest jury verdict in the State of Arizona in 2005, a $2,400,000 verdict in La Due v. Burway, which involved a traumatic brain injury to a 24-year-old motorcyclist, and the $2,800,000 verdict in Donaldson v. Carrizoza, an assault case involving brain injury to our client. In an elder abuse/wrongful death case, we recently recovered not only for the abuse and ultimate death, but the court also awarded attorney fees and all costs under the elder abuse statute, a result which has benefitted other nursing home and elder abuse cases handled by our office.

Confidential Settlement

The firm also recently achieved a $1,700,000 judgment against a nursing home in a rural Arizona county. As the population ages, nursing home neglect and elder abuse cases have become a  substantial part of our practice, and Arizona juries appear to recognize the injustice which is too frequently done to our elderly and vulnerable population.
