Four Jury Trial Victories in six months for GJTBS Pensacola…

October 26, 2011

Our Pensacola office defended experienced developers in a multi-million dollar lawsuit involving a series of complex real estate transactions near Fort Walton Beach, Florida.  After Todd M. LaDouceur (Director) and Paul J. Hamlin, Jr. (Associate) presented a compelling case during the multi-day trial, the jury returned a defense verdict with only a few hours of deliberation and awarded our clients $585,000.00 in damages.

Todd M. LaDouceur (Director) and Henry R. Ramos (Associate) of our Pensacola office represented a local subcontractor against a large construction company in a case involving a contract for the sale of heavy-duty construction vehicles.  On the morning of trial, legal arguments were presented on liability and the Court granted partial summary judgment in our client’s favor.  Mr. Ramos then proceeded to trial on damages, with over $80,000.00 being awarded to our client as a result.

Attorneys in our Pensacola office defended a local title company and its principal against claims of breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, and negligent misrepresentation involving a real estate transaction for a residential development in Santa Rosa County, Florida.  Todd M. LaDouceur (Director) and Henry R. Ramos (Associate) aggressively challenged the Plaintiffs’ case and their key witnesses.  The result:  directed verdicts on three of six counts in our clients’ favor.  Before we called a single witness, the Plaintiffs realized that pressing forward would be futile and voluntarily dismissed the remaining claims.

Our firm was privileged to represent a local entrepreneur in a lawsuit against a real estate investor for breach of contract and civil conspiracy to defraud our client of $250,000.00.  The Defendants countered with various claims of fraud, conversion, and tortious interference with a contract.  During the week-long jury trial, Todd M. LaDouceur (Director) and Matthew Lee Reeder (Associate) of our Pensacola office presented a compelling theme and a creative strategy that produced a verdict of $450,000.00 in damages for our client and no liability on the counterclaim.
