The firm is pleased to announce that an outstanding result achieved by the firm was listed among TopVerdicts.com’s “Top 100 Verdicts” in California for 2021. Scott Gizer was singled out for his work in the case of Rottman v. Kesler, in which he attained a high-value verdict on behalf of the firm’s client. The honor is granted to law firms and attorneys obtaining the highest jury verdicts, bench awards, or settlements each year.
In this matter, Scott and the firm represented Plaintiff Dion Rottman, who purchased what he believed to be a permitted and certified “sit-down” restaurant from Defendant, only to realize upon resale it was registered with a “take-out” certificate of occupancy. Rottman sued Defendant for breach of contract, breach of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing, and negligent misrepresentation. After the initial ruling in the favor of Defendant, Rottman was able to reverse the judgment, receiving a $150,000 verdict.
