VLA&S senior trial counsel, Yvonne Jorgensen, recently won a defense verdict for our client in San Francisco County Superior Court. Plaintiff sued the client, a general contractor’s employee, for negligence in connection with a large, multi-family housing project in San Francisco.  Following a month-long trial that included extensive testimony from architectural, accounting and construction experts, the 12-member jury unanimously rejected plaintiff’s $3 million claim and found in our client’s favor. The jury based its defense verdict on two key findings.  First, the jury determined plaintiff’s claim was barred because the statute of limitations already expired by the time plaintiff filed suit.  Second, the jury found that plaintiff failed to prove what specific work our client performed on the project. Congratulations to Yvonne and her trial / support team of Natalie Glavinovich, Jessica Greer, Ben Yeung, Lisa DeSilva, and Mildren Castillo, for the great outcome and hard-fought victory.
