    Defendant Not Guilty
    Description:
    My client was found Not Guilty in the first jury trial in Washington under what is known as "Maria's Law," which makes failure to secure a load a crime if someone is injured by the falling load. It was alleged that the defendant, a truck driver by trade, had failed to secure a strap winch on his semi trailer, causing it to fly off and killing the driver of a passing car. After a two day trial the jury unanimously agreed that the defendant was not guilty of any crime.
  • Wilsey v. Gooch

    Practice Area:
    Personal Injury
    Outcome:
    Verdict for Plaintiff for full amount sought.
    Description:
    I represented the plaintiff in a jury trial for injuries she received when struck by a car while crossing a street. The insurance company refused to pay a reasonable amount for her injuries so we went to trial. After 4 days of testimony it took the jury only 45 minutes to award my client every penny that I requested. This amount exceeded the limits of the insurance policy but the insurance company paid the full amount of the jury's award.
