In less than one month, Johnson & Bell Shareholder, Mark D. Belongia, and Associate, Ava L. Caffarini, successfully resolved a second fraud case on behalf of a client against a local marketing firm. In this case, Mr. Belongia and Ms. Caffarini were able to prove that the marketing firm never fulfilled the contract with the client, which included business development and consultation, graphic design, and the development of a sales presentation. The marketing firm failed to deliver any product to the client, and was fired after less than a year of working together. In an earlier fraud case brought against the same marketing company, Belongia and Caffarini discovered 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. Mr. Belongia and Ms. Caffarini were able to negotiate a settlement swiftly, due in large part to their experience against this firm in the previous settlement.
