Experienced Representation: Proven Record Of Success
Perhaps our most notable client in the family member category involved representation of the family of Beverly Watson, a country club bookkeeper who disappeared in 1997 after an argument with her husband, from whom she wanted to separate. When her body was found five years later, her husband, James Watson, was convicted of her murder.
Not only was our firm instrumental in maximizing a financial recovery against Mr. Watson civilly, but we also assisted the family in encouraging the criminal prosecution of Mr. Watson for Beverly’s murder. Jim Watson is now serving a life sentence for that murder.
Experienced Fatal Accident And Intentional Homicide Lawyers
Stranger-on-stranger assaults, sexual assaults and murders are most common at apartment complexes, shopping centers and malls, hotels and motels, mobile home parks, and other retail businesses and parking areas. These businesses have a duty to act reasonably and responsibly toward their tenants and invitees.
While no one can guarantee the safety of a given location, owners and managers who negligently ignore dangerous conditions on their property or in the surrounding area may be held civilly accountable for the injuries or deaths of tenants and invitees to their property that result from third-party criminal acts on their property.
A Wrongful Death Attorney Who Can Hold Those Responsible Accountable
If you had a family member who was murdered by a spouse, family member or other acquaintance or in a stranger-on-stranger assault, you need professional representation by lawyers experienced and familiar with the laws governing such cases.
