Congratulations to Mike Doyle of Doyle LLP and Peter Kelly of Kelly, Durham & Pittard, LLP whose hard work led to a $6.4 million verdict in favor of Dr. Gomez. Mike Doyle was lead trial counsel, and tried a fantastic case against one of the top lawyers in Texas. Peter helped him get there by persuading the Texas Supreme Court to let Dr.Gomez have access to the hospital’s internal communications. You can read a Houston Chronicle story about the case and the verdict here, and John Council wrote about it in the Texas Lawyer.
Congratulations to Steve Laird, Stephen Daniel, Steve Samples and Kirk Pittard who just secured a $6,095,000 verdict in Judge Tapscott’s Court in Dallas today in an 18 wheeler trucking accident case. Pat Montes assisted with witness preparation. The damages awarded were just for the plaintiffs’ non-economic damages. The defendants’ pre-trial offer to settle was $35,000.
