Dahman Law Recognized for Winning One of Central Ohio’s Largest Jury Awards in 2013

Dahman Law was recognized by Columbus Business First as winning one of the top 20 largest jury awards of Central Ohio in 2013. Dahman Law successfully won $41,728 at trial last April for its client The RAE Associates, Inc. in Franklin County Court of Common Pleas, Case No. 12-CVH-1103.

As reported by Columbus Business First, out of more than 25,000 civil cases terminated in Central Ohio in 2012, only 0.1% were terminated by jury trial.  Even more impressive, of the 21 jury trial awards for 2013 listed Dahman Law’s case was 1 of only 6 business disputes to go to a jury.

After the four-day trial, the unanimous jury awarded Dahman Law’s client The RAE Associates $41,727.61 on its breach of contract complaint against Nexus Communications, Inc.  The jury also rendered a verdict in favor of Dahman Law’s client and dismissing Nexus’ claim for $652,112.08.  That amount would have been the 7th largest verdict in Franklin County, and the 2nd largest verdict in a business case.

Samir Dahman, founder of Dahman Law and lead attorney on the case, said the most incredible part of the win was that the jury initially attempted to award The RAE Associates more than it sought – an additional $23,000 in damages – by awarding $65,000.  But since The RAE Associates did not ask for that much, the Court modified it.

The satisfaction of The RAE Associates was the objective and happy outcome of the case, but Dahman Law is proud to have also earned the 6th largest jury award in Central Ohio in 2013 in a business case.

Dahman Law credits the win to its comprehensive and coordinated approach to the case from research and consulting with the client to trial.  This recent recognition is yet another illustration of Dahman Law’s philosophy – “exceptional, client-focused legal services” – at work.
