Representative Matters

  • Obtained a multimillion dollar settlement on behalf of a victim of fraud and fiduciary abuse by family members over several decades.
  • Defended a large commercial contractor in a high-value employment action which included both PAGA and class action claims. Following an eight-figure demand, a nominal settlement was reached representing just a fraction of the initial claim.
  • Secured an early dismissal of class action claims by demonstrating that the claims were waived by way of an arbitration agreement and ultimately negotiated a minimal settlement of PAGA claims in an action against a manufacturing company with an initial eight-figure demand.
  • Achieved favorable settlement for an insured and the title insurer by negotiating the release of a previously unrecorded lien for a mere fraction of its value after it was recorded right before the close of escrow resulting in unmarketable title for the insured.
  • Recovered a significant portion of the loss suffered by a mortgage lender when its borrower fraudulently retained funds meant to pay off her loan during the sale of her real property.
