Verdicts/Settlements:

  • Workers' Compensation / Personal Injury - $275,000.00 Settlement: The Employee sustained a fatal crush injury while operating the Employer's dump truck. When the Employee's dependent minor asserted a claim for dependency benefits pursuant to the Georgia Workers' Compensation Act, the Employer denied the claim, asserting that the Employee had borrowed the dump truck for a personal errand and was operating it on a lunch break. Exercising information gained through discovery, counsel for the dependent minor argued for, and secured, both a workers' compensation settlement, and a personal injury settlement, against the Employer., 2018
  • Workers' Compensation / Personal Injury - $205,000.00 Settlement: The Employee was involved in a work-related motor vehicle accident (MVA) and sustained injuries to the cervical and lumbar spine. The Employer accepted the neck injury, but denied the injury to its Employee's lower back on the ground that the Employee suffered from a pre-existing condition. Counsel for the Employee gathered medical evidence showing that the MVA had aggravated the Employee's pre-existing herniated disc, convincing the Employer to accept the lumbar injury and begin providing medical benefits for the same. In settling the case, counsel for the Employee painstakingly identified and exhausted all avenues of recovery, obtaining settlements from the Employer, the individual who caused the MVA, and the Employee's underinsured motorist insurance., 2018
  • Personal Injury - $115,000.00 Settlement: The Client sustained a fractured vertebra during a motor vehicle accident with an individual driving on the wrong side of the road. Following successful medical treatment for the Client, counsel obtained settlements from the at-fault driver, as well as from the Client's underinsured motorist insurance., 2017
  • Workers' Compensation - $85,000.00 Settlement: A restaurant employee slipped on a frozen piece of meat at work, sustaining an injury to the cervical spine in the fall. In the months following the accident, the same Employee developed carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). While the Employer accepted the injury to the Employee's cervical spine, it denied responsibility for the Employee's CTS on the ground that it was a pre-existing condition. At a hearing before the State Board of Workers' Compensation (Board) on the matter, counsel for the Employee successfully argued to the Board that the Employee's CTS was traumatically-acquired, but the Employer appealed the decision. Appearing before the Appellate Division, counsel for the Employee decisively established that the Employee's CTS was traumatically-acquired, compelling the Employer to provide medical benefits, including surgery, for the Employee's CTS. Ultimately, counsel for the Employee won a favorable settlement from the Employer., 2017
  • Workers' Compensation - $75,000.00 Settlement: The Employee sustained an injury to the cervical spine after slipping and falling in the back of a company work-truck. The Employer denied the claim, citing a lack of witnesses to the accident, and argued that the Employee suffered from a pre-existing condition. Through the course of intensive trial preparation, counsel for the Employee engaged the Employer in mediation, and won a significant settlement for the Employee., 2016
  • Workers' Compensation - $60,000.00 Settlement: While working at a warehouse, the Employee tripped over construction debris, sustaining a broken ankle. The Employer accepted the injury to the Employee's ankle, but delayed providing medical benefits for the same. Further mistreatment followed, when the Employee was released back to work on light-duty restrictions; at that time the Employer cut the Employee's hours and refused to pay temporary partial disability benefits. Pushed to seek help, the Employee enlisted counsel, who immediately set to work initiating and expediting much-needed medical treatment for the Employee's ankle. Additionally, counsel determined that the Employee was owed several thousand dollars in past-due wages, and filed a hearing request in pursuit of the same. By continually applying pressure, counsel for the Employee held an evasive Employer to account, and secured an important settlement for the Employee., 2018
  • Workers' Compensation - $60,000.00 Settlement: While helping construct a roof, the Employee stepped on to a piece of unfastened sheet metal, falling approximately twenty feet to the ground and sustaining a broken foot. The Employer denied responsibility for the injury, claiming the Employee's fall was the result of intoxication by marijuana. Though three co-workers were enlisted by the Employer to provide witness to the alleged marijuana use, counsel for the Employee prevailed, securing a valuable settlement from the Employer., 2018
  • Criminal Defense - Not Guilty: The Defendant was charged with one count of Burglary, one count of Aggravated Assault, and one count of Possession of a Knife During the Commission of a Crime. In all, the Defendant's exposure was forty-five years in confinement, and the Defendant rejected all plea deals. Following a two-day-long jury trial, during which the Defendant's recorded statement was suppressed, the jury found the Defendant Not Guilty, on all counts., 2014
  • Criminal Defense - Not Guilty: The Defendant was charged with two counts of Aggravated Stalking and one count of Distributing Obscene Material to a Minor. In all, the Defendant's exposure was twenty-one years in confinement, and the Defendant rejected all plea deals. Following a two-day-long jury trial, during which the Defendant was required to call an adverse witness to the stand, the jury found the Defendant Not Guilty, on all counts., 2014
  • Criminal Defense - Not Guilty: The Defendant was charged with five counts of Aggravated Assault, five counts of Possession of a Knife During the Commission of a Crime, and one count of Felony Obstruction. In all, the Defendant's exposure was 130 years in confinement, and the Defendant rejected all plea deals. Additionally, the Defendant filed a "speedy trial" demand. Following a two-day-long jury trial, the jury deliberated for less than three hours before finding the Defendant Not Guilty, on all counts., 2014
