Million Dollar Verdict in High Speed Police Chase

My former law partner and I tried a case against the City of Santa Fe in which we obtained a favorable verdict on behalf of our client in the amount of $1.3 Million Dollars.  The case involved a police chase of a stolen car in Santa Fe, New Mexico that resulted in a crash that severely injured our client. 

Medical Malpractice/Wrongful Death - Failure to Diagnose Sepsis

Certain vital signs can be a clear indicator of a septic condition.  Healthcare providers should pay close attention to those vital signs and should include sepsis on their list of potential diagnoses if they are abnormal. In the case at issue, the doctor failed to do that.  The case was settled for a confidential amount.

Catastrophic Rock Climbing Injury

 I represented a woman who suffered a catastrophic injury at a rock climbing gym. I fought hard on behalf of my client to invalidate a release and waiver that the defendant argued completely absolved them from liability.  I then showed that the defendant had not taken steps to protect my client, who was a novice climber in a beginner's class.  The case was settled for a confidential amount on the eve of trial.  

Hospital Failures Resulting in Stroke

In a medical malpractice case against a hospital, I showed that hospital failures on multiple levels caused my client to suffer a stroke which permanently affected her vision and resulted in other damages. The case settled for a confidential amount.

Undue Influence

My client found out when her mother passed away that the majority of her inheritance had been given to a family member in a secret will.  We fought hard to show that what had happened was wrong, and we were able to recover the majority of her inheritance.

Trucking Crash

In a collision between two semi's on the highway, I was able to use GPS data to show that the driver who rear-ended my client was negligent and had caused serious injuries to my client.  The lawsuit settled for a confidential amount.
