Please describe a case(s) in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
1. I represented a woman who slipped and fell on water at a Stop & Shop which had not taken reasonable steps to remove it or warn of it. As a result the woman suffered a severe fracture of her minor hand. After 2 years of treatment and negotiation with Stop & Shop I secured a settlement in the amount of $120,000.00. 2. I represented a driver injured when the other driver ran a stop sign causing my client to strike that vehicle in the side. My client’s airbag deployed and injured his left eye that resulted in the development of a cataract. I negotiated a settlement against the at fault driver’s insurance company for the full policy amount of $100,000.00. 3. I represented a man who had been litigating his interest in his father’s estate against his father’s 2nd wife off and on for 30+ years since the late 1970’s. The issue revolved around poorly drafted trust and will that left his son’s interest unclear. I convinced the wife’s attorney to enter into a formal mediation to try to settle the matter. At mediation I was able to secure a settlement in the amount of $250,000.00 in full satisfaction of my client’s estate claim. 4. I represented a woman against her sister over a disputed will of their mother. The will had been rewritten late in their mother’s life seemingly under pressure by the sister who had been living and taking care of the mother for some years prior to her death. It was a small estate of approximately $60,000. I was able to secure a settlement of $25,000.00 for my client avoiding most of the expense that a will contest can incur. 5. I have mediated a number of divorces saving my clients thousands of dollars in legal costs and expenses. 6. I have also litigated many contentious divorces resulting in property division and custody and child support in favor of my clients. My philosophy in family law cases is to do everything possible to minimize the tension between the parties and to bring them into agreement as quickly as possible to minimize their legal costs and expenses especially when children are involved. 7. I represented a woman who had custody of her 3 children against her ex-husband who wanted to take the children and move them to Ohio. The matter went to trial. The judge ruled in my favor leaving the children in their mother’s custody. 8. I represented a man seeking custody of his 2 year old daughter from the mother. I was able to establish that the mother was not competent because she was using drugs on a regular basis. The judge awarded custody to the father. 9. I represented a woman who was terminated from her job of 15 years because of an illness for which her employer failed to make a reasonable accommodation. After some litigation I secured a settlement for my client in the amount of $80,000.00. 10. I represented a woman who was the highest ranking female post master in the United Postal Service for wrongful termination when she had received unfair treatment as compared to her male counterparts. The matter was litigated at the EEOC for 1 year without success. I then filed suit in federal court and litigated there for approximately another year before I was able to bring the matter into court sponsored mediation. During mediation I was able to negotiate restoration of my client’s retirement benefits and lost earnings. The total settlement was $1,200,000.
