Boeing Litigation

We represent families, pilots and individual crew members affected by the tragic disasters of Lion Air Flight 610 and Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 caused by the negligence of The Boeing Company and the United States Federal Aviation Administration. Boeing's outrageous conduct put the lives of thousands in danger and disrupted the lives of families of the passengers, as well as the personal lives of the pilots and crew who were effectively forced to fly planes that placed their lives and the lives of their passengers at risk. Further, the inevitable grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX caused many pilots and crew to lose flying time, wages, and in some cases, their jobs. Our goal on behalf of the families and crews is to ensure that such a tragedy is never be allowed to happen again.

Commercial Litigation

We have represented plaintiffs and defendants in state and federal courts located in Illinois and Arizona. We recent brokered a settlement of the amount demanded plus attorneys fees one week after initiating the action against several franchises of a national fitness chain. We also prevailed on a motion to dismiss a claim brought against a former employee by a Fortune 500 company represented by one of the nation's largest law firms. 

Air Passenger Rights

We represented passengers of American Airlines domestic U.S. flight in a class action based on the airlines practice of denying the claims of U.S. passengers under EU Reg. 261. EU Reg. 261 entitles all passengers - including U.S. passengers - compensation of 600 euros for flights into or out of EU countries that were delayed by more than four hours, but you have to assert the claim in an EU forum making it cost prohibitive for U.S. passengers. 

We have also represented nearly 100 passengers with claims against all of the major U.S. airlines whose flights were delayed. A recent favorable decision in Cook County, Illinois ruled that the plaintiff was entitled to compensation for the delay unless the airline could prove that they took reasonable measures to avoid the delay; as is typically the case, the airline took no measures at all.
