Fighting For Our Clients

Our firm has achieved many significant trial victories and settlements. When litigation can be avoided and settlement is appropriate, our firm settles, often saving our clients in litigation costs.

Some cases pull us in, like court-appointed criminal cases. Even there we have achieved significant results, like the 147 “Not Guilty” jury verdicts when, on short notice, our senior partner was court-appointed to represent a white-collar defendant in a complex, deeply document-intensive case.

But most of our cases are in the civil arena.  Some have resulted in record-setting verdicts, while many have settled.  Settled cases handled by our firm are highlighted below, with net monetary recoveries listed which our clients received in-pocket, after deduction of expenses and attorney’s fees.

*  More than $19 million net to clients in a fraud, trust, and breach of contract action. The case was settled prior to trial.

*  More than $6 million net to client, a small technology company that alleged fraud against a Fortune 500 company. The case was settled after trial.

*  More than $5 million net to Client, a charitable foundation, in a case regarding breach of contract and fraud. The case settled prior to trial.

*  More than $5 million net to client, a charitable foundation, in a case regarding breach of contract and fraud. The case was settled prior to trial.

*  More than $3.8 million net to client, a bankruptcy estate, arising from fraud, breach of contract, and related matters, against a Fortune 500 company. The case was settled prior to trial.

*  More than $1 million net to clients in an accounting malpractice case. The case was settled prior to trial.

There are more, but this should give an idea of the law firm capacity to deliver.  Of course, specific results depend on the facts of each case and past performance is no guarantee of future results.  However, an early case that reflects, like the Bells Landfill Cases, a tenacity in lawyering, has become a celebration of the high water mark in Texas insured protections, the Vail case.  It makes interesting reading.   https://www.munsch.com/portalresource/lookup/wosid/cp-base-4-3314/overrideFile.name=/remembering_vail.pdf
