Note: The outcome of a particular case cannot be predicted upon a lawyer’s past results, and I am not suggesting or promising the same results as listed above. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome. Settlements are the result of private negotiations between the parties involved that may be affected by factors other than the legal merits of a particular case. Results depend upon a variety of factors unique to each case .
