Case Results

Record Cleared

Client had 28 criminal convictions on their criminal record.  I cleared each one successfully and cleared a path for their future.

Pardons Granted

I worked hard to set two clients up to have their pardons granted by the Governor’s Office one year, and both pardons were granted on the same day, leading to two fresh starts for these clients.

Policy Limits Settlements

I have had multiple clients obtain the highest possible settlements, namely, the limits of the at-fault driver’s insurance policies or the client’s own policy.

Chlorine Gas Poisoning

An elderly client came to me who had been poisoned by chlorine gas at a public spa facility.  I was able to negotiate a settlement quickly for nearly 10 times the amount of the client’s medical expenses. I helped insure that this client was fairly compensated for the negligence of a third party.  

Invasion of Privacy / Nonconsensual Media Coverage

A client came to my office whose home had unfortunately burned down in a fire, and the media had trespassed on their property and used the footage they obtained for ratings, without consent of the client. I was able to successfully have the footage removed from all outlets and destroyed. Additionally, I secured a settlement for the damage to the family and a corresponding charitable donation.  

Minor Injured at School

I was approached by a concerned parent whose child had been injured at a school activity through no fault of their own. I secured a settlement for $80,000 and made sure the school would think twice before engaging in negligent behavior again.

Small Claims Success

I have helped dozens of small claims clients obtain awards in small claims court and/or defend themselves against baseless lawsuits and protect their reputations.  

Get and Keep Professional Licenses

I have helped clients get and/or keep their state licenses in numerous fields including Car Sales, Nursing, In-Home Day Care. Real Estate, Foster Parenting, Counseling, and Dental Hygiene.
