    • $600,000 in an auto collision case with co-counsel.  Our client was an avid surfer who required neck surgery following a head-on collision with another car.  We were able to obtain the surgery for our client on a lien basis after his health insurer denied the procedure.  The surgery was a success and relieved our client of his chronic pain and his case settled after intense litigation., 2015

    • $500,000 in a rear-end auto collision.  Our client was a local attorney who required back surgery after an auto collision on the I15 through Temecula, CA.  The case was particularly challenging because the defense alleged the plaintiff was suffering from pre-existing degenerative disc disease, not a trauma-related condition., 2013
