The Art of Accomplishment Case Studies

That Sinking Feeling

After three homeowners' brand new houses began to crack and sink, we filed a lawsuit on their behalf against the contractor, engineers, and others, including a soils testing firm. In discovery we learned that the soil engineering firm performed faulty testing and did not detect that the engineered fill under our clients' homes was inadequately compacted. We employed a divide and conquer settlement strategy that left the soils engineer settling last and on terms highly favorable to our clients.
