DEFENSE LAWYER NOT ONLY LOSES CASE – BUT ALSO OVER A MILLION DOLLARS OF ANNUAL BUSINESS FOR DEFENSE FIRM
John obtained a verdict before a jury in which the defense lawyer “guaranteed” her defendant client (a national chain building warehouse type store) that the plaintiff John represented would not win at trial. Not only did John win this case (he got over 20 times what the insurance lawyer had offered prior to trial) the lawyer lost favor with her national client, and LOST the book of business which supposedly brought in over a million dollars annually to the large defense firm. The lawyer was crying at the end of the case about the result John and his client had just obtained. The defense fired that lawyer, hired another lawyer appeal the decision. In the appeal, the insurance company claimed the jury gave too much money in their verdict. The Insurance company LOST their appeal and had to pay the large judgment, plus interest for delaying payment.
