Over my career, I have either been solo counsel or co-counsel to many verdicts and settlements.   Listed below are some examples.   I treat every case as if it is going to go to trial.   But by fully understanding my client's loss, and through hard work, most cases settle.   However, if we cannot settle for a fair amount, we will go to arbitration or trial on our client's behalf.


  • $55,155,000 jury verdict following a month long trial holding MetLife accountable for bad faith practices in the adjustment of an automobile theft claim. This verdict was the second largest in Arizona in 2009.    To see the Lawyers USA article of May, 2009, click

        Please understand that the above examples are in no way a guarantee of the kind of results I could achieve on your case in the event you became my client.  I work hard on behalf  of my clients to obtain just results, but each case is different and no gauantees can ever be made as to an outcome.   Please see my disclaimer on the Resource tab.
