- Kevin represented a 42 year old man who sustained serious personal injury when he fell while trying to secure and transport a dumpster while working for a trash hauling company. The injuries (which included a fractured vertebra) caused him chronic pain on a permanent basis. At the beginning of the case, it did not appear as though the defendants had any insurance, but through Kevin’s hard work and diligence, he was able to establish that the primary defendant had coverage under two (2) other insurance policies and shortly thereafter, the insurance companies paid the total policy limits available under both policies in the amount of ($800,000.00).

- Kevin represented a construction worker who sustained serious injuries when he fell nearly sixty feet off a scaffold. His injuries included multiple broken bones and a mild/moderate head injury. The worker recovered from most of the physical injuries but he continued to be affected by the head injury, preventing him from working on a full-time basis. Shortly after the trial began, the defense agreed to settle the case for Three Million Two Hundred Fifty Thousand Dollars ($3,250,000.00).
- Kevin represented an eighty-two-year-old woman who suffered a neurologic injury as a result of medical negligence. After two years of litigation, the defendant agreed to a settlement in the amount of Two Million Seven Hundred Fifty Thousand Dollars ($2,750,000.00).
- Kevin represented the estate of a twenty-nine-year-old motorcyclist who was struck by a car at the top of a bridge. The motorcycle driver was catapulted off the bike and plunged over the bridge nearly 50 feet to his death. After three years of litigation, the case was settled for Three Million Dollars ($3,000,000.00).
- Kevin represented a 45-year-old woman who was involved in a serious motorcycle accident. As a result of the accident, the woman sustained multiple broken bones as well as a vestibular injury. Shortly before the trial, the insurer for the individual who caused the accident settled for the policy limit of One Million Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand Dollars ($1,250,000.00).
- Kevin represented two individuals whose home experienced mold contamination after water entered the same following a rain storm. The homeowners' insurance company did not properly remediate the mold and as a result, the house became uninhabitable. Kevin pursued a claim on the homeowners' behalf against their insurance company, and after several years of litigation, the claim was settled in the amount Nine Hundred Fifty Thousand Dollars ($950,000).
- Kevin represented a 50-year-old man whose arm was injured in a construction accident. The day before the commencement of the trial, the case settled for Seven Hundred and Seventy Five Thousand Dollars ($775,000.00).
- Kevin represented an individual whose home was uninhabitable as a result of a fire ignited by a co-inhabitant in the home. After a four week trial, the jury found the co-inhabitant liable for the fire and returned a verdict in favor of Kevin’s client in excess of Six Hundred Thousand Dollars ($600,000.00).
- Kevin represented a homeowner in an insurance claim brought by a milk-delivery person who sustained multiple, traumatic lacerations when she fell on shards of glass from milk bottles that broke when she tripped in the homeowner’s premises. The milk-delivery person sued the homeowner, demanding over One Million Dollars ($1,000,000.00). The case went to trial and the jury returned with a verdict in favor of Kevin’s client (the homeowner) resulting in no payment to the Plaintiff.
- Kevin defended an entrepreneur who owned a successful mining enterprise and was being sued in Federal Court by individuals who had loaned money to the enterprise. The Plaintiffs claimed that the money loaned was an investment valued at Sixty-Eight Million Dollars ($68,000,000.00) while Kevin’s client believed the plaintiffs were only owed approximately Three Million Dollars ($3,000,000.00). Kevin aggressively litigated the case and shortly after taking the seminal deposition of the lead plaintiff, the case was settled for the amount originally being offered by Kevin’s client.
