NOTABLE RESULTS

Many of our settled cases involve confidentiality agreements. This means that the law firm and our clients agree not to disclose the amount of money paid to settle a case. Most of our settled cases involve confidentiality agreements. The main reason for these agreements is that the defendants (or the persons or entities that injured our clients) do not want the amount of money they are paying to our clients to be made publicly known for fear that it could make future injured claimants believe that their claims should settle for an amount as large as the settlements that we obtain for our clients.
