SAMPLE APPELLATE DECISIONS I HAVE WORKED ON:

Jeffrey v. Snappy Car Rental, Inc., 128 N.C.App. 171 (1997): this case "made law" and was important in determining an area of the law that had produced a great deal of litigation with regard to insurance coverage. The court ruled in favor of our client.

Benavides v. Summit Structures, Inc., et al., 118 N.C.App. 645; 456 S.E.2d 339 (1995): this workers' compensation case helped clarify the law in several areas. The court ruled in favor of our client.

Allred v. Capital Area Soccer League, et al., 669 S.E.2d 777; 2008 N.C.App LEXIS 2265, January 14, 2008: this case was the first of its kind to be considered by the appellate courts and dealt with the issue of stadium liability for a serious head injury to a patron. The court ruled in favor of our client.
