Crider v. Merryhill Schools and Nobel Learning Communities; Sacramento County Superior Court

We represented the family of a young girl caused a traumatic brain injury while in the care of Merryhill Schools.

The defendants settled the case on the third day of trial. We were able to obtain a structured settlement for our client worth more than $8 Million.


Kwong v. Sacramento Rapid Transit District; Sacramento Superior Court

We represented the family of a 24 year old woman killed when the vehicle she was a passenger in was struck by a light rail train. Although both the defendants and the California Highway Patrol placed blame for the accident on the driver of the car, the case was settled by the Sacramento Regional Transit and other defendants on the first day of trial. The total settlement for all plaintiffs injured in the accident, including our client, was in excess of $8 Million cash.
