New CA Settlement Case

 
 
I offer Lawyer Master Mentoring™ to help less experienced civil lawyers throughout the U.S. quickly learn essential law practice skills, think strategically in preparing and presenting their cases, avoid mistakes, and implement excellent systems to win more, make more money and create their dream law practices.

CSAA Insurance Exchange v. Hodroj (2021) _ Cal.App.5th _ , 2021 WL 5631492: The Court of Appeal affirmed the trial court's order granting plaintiff's motion for summary judgment in an action by plaintiff carrier against defendant for breaching his agreement to settle a personal injury claim for the policy limit of $100,000.
