Proven Results


In 2018, Chip and Joann won an $18.6M jury verdict in a single-plaintiff wrongful termination/defamation case. The case was heavily-litigated against Allstate Insurance Company. At trial, Allstate brought in a team of 7 attorneys from 4 different firms. The jury found in our client’s favor, voting unanimously for our client on nearly every question. The jury awarded $2.6M in compensatory damages and $16M in punitive damages. The trial court upheld the judgment on post-trial motions.


We won a jury verdict in favor of a salesperson formerly employed by Carrier Corporation, part of a Fortune 500 company. Opposing trial counsel from an earlier case (where we won a jury trial with a punitive damage finding) asked us to join in the representation and handle the trial. A jury agreed Carrier breached its contract, committed fraud, and awarded $8 million in punitive damages. We fought against a team from a well-known national law firm.


We won a jury verdict in favor of a San Diego contractor against Hess Microgen, a subsidiary of a huge oil company. The jury rejected claims made against our client and agreed with us that Hess Microgen breached its contract and interfered with contractual relationships. The jury awarded $6 million in punitive damages. During the case we battled against two large national law firms.
