Our trial and litigation attorneys have helped a lot of people seek justice for wrongs committed to them.

Below are some of our results. However, note that most cases are resolved through some type of settlement, even after trial and during appeals. These settlements are generally confidential with steep penalties for disclosure. Even those that are not deemed confidential are confidential to clients. As a result, the results below do not give specific information that could be used to destroy the confidentiality of settlements and verdicts.
