Two jury trial victories in 2019

In June 2019, Erin Holmes defeated lawyers from the Thomas J. Henry firm in an auto accident case, convincing the jury to award no damages against our client despite the fact our client was at fault in the accident. The jury told Erin after trial that they did not believe any of the plaintiff's injuries were a result of the accident in question. Then in October 2019, Eddie Kaye and Ashley Applewhite tried another auto accident case to a defense verdict after a week-long trial that focused on medical evidence and evidence that the plaintiff had unrelated injuries that he was claiming all resulted from the accident in question. Both cases were in Travis County District Court.

Significant Arbitration Award for Our Client in 2019

Hamp Skelton and Eddie Kaye, along with co-counsel Bryan Forman, scored a significant victory in a one-week arbitration held in January 2019. Our client, a seven-figures investor in a privately held company pursued Texas Security Act claims against the promoters who sold him the shares based on false and misleading information in an offering memorandum and pitch deck. Following hard-fought discovery battles, several rounds of briefs and a week-long final hearing, the arbitrator ruled for our client and awarded him his money back, plus interest and significant attorneys fees. The award made the investor whole.
