Client Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5
August 30, 2021

What was thought to be a simple breach of contract turned into a nightmare. Through their tenacity and their deep knowledge of the law, we were successful. There is no reason to look any further as you will not get any better representation than this firm. I highly recommend them and strongly suggest that if you are considering starting a business or are already managing one, this firm will guide you, avoiding the troubled waters businesses sometimes find themselves in.

Punitive Damages typically range from twice (2x) to ten times (10x) the amount of the compensatory damages verdict determined after the liability phase.
