					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. Each client of Avera & Smith is given the same
care and attention that the latest case received.
