    Scholarly Lectures/Writings:


    • $175,000.00 verdict in Circuit Court for Prince George's County for a girl who broke her arm when she was hit by a car while crossing the street in the crosswalk. This verdict was in excess of the defendant driver's $100,000.00 insurance State Farm Insurance policy. State Farm's lawyer disputed liability, arguing that their driver was not at fault and that our client, although a minor child, was contributorily negligent and barred from recovery. State Farm chose not to make a settlement offer in this case, which forced the case to trial and exposed its insured driver to an excess verdict. Although the defendant driver only had $100,000.00 in liability insurance, the insurance company ultimately ended up paying more than its insured's policy limits since it made the wrong decision in forcing this case to trial., 2011
    • Justin and a Texas Lawyer recovered $1.25 million in a Virginia swimming pool drowning matter on behalf of a mother and father whose child was lost due to lifeguarding negligence, 2016
    • Negotiated an $850,000.00 settlement for a Maryland woman who was injured when an unleashed dog knocked her over causing her to sustain a hip fracture, 2017
