Below are representative settlements, verdicts, judgments, and arbitration awards achieved by Dimond Kaplan & Rothstein, P.A. Please note, however, that every case is different and these results, while accurate, do not foreshadow what we may obtain for you in your case. Rather, we provide this information because our clients, and the lawyers who refer their own clients to our firm, have told us that knowing our firm has achieved significant results in the past is one of the many factors that led them to hire DKR, or refer someone to DKR. Irrespective of what firm you plan to hire, you should ask any prospective attorney whether he or she has obtained significant results for their clients - although the decision to hire an attorney should not be made on this factor alone. We would be happy to discuss our background and experience with you at length should you desire that. Contact us for a free consultation today.
