Double homicide - client charged with a motor vehicle violation causing
2 deaths. Case tried to jury and client acquitted on both counts.
Client arrested for DUI after allegedly driving through a stop light and
then stopping at a flashing yellow at 1:30 a.m. Breath test results were .16/.17
This was a Personal Protection Order (PPO) placed against my client by
a girlfriend who was trying to cover her tracks. The PPO hearing was so
entertaining that court staff still mention it to me - the transcript
is worth ordering. Most importantly, the PPO was dissolved by the court
and my client's liberties were restored.
My client was accused of assault and battery by a neighbor lady who was
a nightmare. At trial I successfully impeached that complaining witness,
and my client was able to tell his side of what really happened to the
jury. It took the jury all of 12 minutes to vote Not Guilty and acquit
I represented a homeowner who was sued by a builder for unpaid bills. The
house was improperly built and detailed examination revealed significant
construction defects. I filed a counter-claim on behalf of my client against
the builder. My client won the maximum amount of damages allowed for a
case of this type in Michigan. The builders case against my client was
'no caused', meaning he lost.
Client was nearly killed by a bartender in a bar brawl that he didn't
start. Pre-trial settlement offer by the defense was $10,000. After a
month-long trial, the jury found for my client and the total judgment
was well over $1 Million dollars
I represented Shea home in a suit against a subcontractor that had built
defective walls in a huge (500+ homes) development. Because of my contracting
expertise I was able to diagnose the problem with these defective walls,
and our experts confirmed the same. A month-long jury trial resulted in
a verdict for literally every penny that I asked them to award.
