Johnson & Bell Shareholder, Mark D. Belongia, and Attorney, Ava L. Caffarini, successfully resolved a fraud case on behalf of two start-up companies against a local marketing firm. In this fraud case, Mr. Belongia and Ms. Caffarini were able to prove that the marketing firm failed to develop the two cell phone applications and two websites ordered by the start-up companies. Mr. Belongia and Ms. Caffarini adopted an aggressive litigation strategy and during discovery found that the marketing firm had a long history of overcharging and underserving its clients, not paying contractors and making outright false representations on its capabilities and experience. The start-up companies were able to recoup all of their losses as a result of a court held settlement conference. The attorneys prepared a persuasive settlement submission to not only the court but to the defendants themselves.
