U. S. Supreme Court Rejects Appeal Of Big Tobacco In Avera & Smith's Historic $17.5 Million Verdict Gainesville, FL, 21-April-2012 - Gainesville FL law firm, Avera & Smith, LLP is very pleased to share the news that the United States Supreme Court has rejected the appeal of big tobacco companies in a historic verdict which resulted in $17.5 million verdict for their client. The Gainesville Florida wrongful death lawyer had been fighting for their client, whose husband was an addicted smoker and ultimately succumbed. When interviewed recently the team discussed their commitment to representing clients effectively. "Our legal team is composed of an extraordinarily skilled and experienced group. The idea of fighting big tobacco companies has often deterred lawyers from taking on these types of wrongful death cases. However, we knew that there had been an ongoing conspiracy by tobacco companies to withhold information about the dangers of their products and systematically misrepresent facts to the public. Our team was able to present the damning evidence that resulted in a jury verdict that is the first of its kind in North Florida. Following the initial verdict, the tobacco companies appealed the verdict and, after two years of appeals, were sent a clear message by the United States Supreme Court when their final appeal was denied. We take pride in the fact that our team gives the same level of dedication and skill to every client we represent." People who have lost a loved one due to a wrongful death are often unsure of what steps to take to recover from the loss. During the initial consultation, the team will discuss the incident and review any evidence that the client brings with them. When the Gainesville Florida wrongful death lawyer agrees to pursue a case he will work with his investigative team to collect all of the evidence required for presentation in the courts. The Avera & Smith team are noted for their diligence and attention to detail. They make sure that clients are aware of the legal process and each step that is taken as they navigate the legal system. The attorneys represent their client's best interests and work to ensure the best resolution of their case.
