AXS LAW Wins $63.5MILLION FOR BUSINESS OWNNERS IN CASE AGAINST MIAMI COMMISSIONER
Many lawyers in town refused to take on the City of Miami. Most other firms could not figure out what the right claim was to assert. Most thought we could not win the case. But over seven weeks the AXS LAW trial team put on 18 witnesses (including 3 former Chiefs of Police) and cross examined 8 defense witnesses and won a verdict for $63.5 million that in a case where the City of Miami had hired five prominent law firms to defend Commissioner Joe Carollo. The day we called Carollo as an adverse witness, he skipped court claiming illness. The judge had to order him to come back under threat of contempt. When he returned it was standing room only for the entire day. More than 50 articles covered daily developments in the trial from such diverse sources as the Miami Herald, the New York Times, CBS, Telemundo and many others. And after the evidence we elicited, and the verdict we obtained, there have been a parade of voices calling for Carollo’s resignation, including the Editorial Page of the Miami Herald.
