The Reilly Legal Philosophy
The law levels the playing field. It is a place where one can obtain justice and compensation when they have suffered harm, loss, or injustice because of the negligent or wrongful actions of another. A lone individual can prevail against a huge company; a defrauded buyer can prevail against a devious seller; an injured person can get compensation against the person who injured her. All of this is possible in our courts of law.
Attorney Reilly will only file meritorious lawsuits, and they encourage alternative resolutions wherever possible. While many cases settle before trial, not all do. It is vitally important that the injured party have an attorney who is ready, willing, and able to go to trial if the other side will not agree to a fair settlement. That is what attorney Reilly does.
(names and identifying information withheld pursuant to the parties’ confidentiality agreement) After battling in court for many years, the parties agreed to try the case before a private arbitrator. The case involved claims of medical malpractice in connection with a surgery. Attorney Reilly was able to prove that the surgeon was not properly prepared for the surgery, that the surgery was attempted improperly, and that the surgeon did not properly follow the patient after the surgery. The patient was left with significant spinal disabilities as a result. The arbitrator awarded the plaintiff $3,190,000 to compensate for those disabilities.
In this case, attorney Reilly represented the plaintiff which purchased haircutting salon franchises from the seller, but later found that the financial representations made by the seller were false and incomplete. He and his client offered to settle for the return of the purchase money, but the seller refused. At trial, he proved that the seller committed fraud and violated the Connecticut Unfair Trade Practices Act, and won a judgment in excess of $2,300,000 which included the return of the purchase money, interest, attorneys fees, financial losses incurred while operating the salons, and an extra award of interest because the defendants refused the earlier settlement offer.
