The Zwerdling Law Firm recently obtained a judgment in a case where we represented a young woman who was shot in the face by her then boyfriend. Currently, the defendant is incarcerated in a California prison serving a sentence for attempted murder.
We took this case pro bono because we felt strongly that the victim needed as much support as possible to help her cope with the horrible injuries she suffered in this incident. We realized that it was unlikely that the defendant had sufficient assets to pay a Judgment and the victim was unable to hire counsel.
Our client was awarded the sum of $4,541,632.15 against the defendant. If the defendant ever comes into any assets, we will aggressively seek to enforce the Judgment against him.
Representing this victim was very important to the Zwerdling Law Firm because we strongly believe that we have an obligation to the public to take on cases where justice needs to be done even when there may be no compensation for our work in the matter.
