Area of Law: Civil Law

Date: 01/01/2011

In this case, Mr. Gourde defended a prominent Florida criminal defense attorney and his firm against a fraud claim. The Florida attorney was retained in California by a criminal suspect who was the subject of the largest seizure of a private weapons’ cache and collection in U.S. history. Although Mr. Gourde’s client obtained a favorable result for his criminal Defendant client, the client later claimed he was misled about his defense. After months of intense Court maneuvering, which involved numerous motions, Court hearings and Court ordered sanctions against the opposing attorney, Mr. Gourde was able to obtain the complete dismissal of his clients.
