CLIENT WINS AGAINST ATTORNEY: A Denver jury last week awarded a former client of Anderson Hemmat & Levine more than $2 million in her suit alleging that the firm pressured her to settle, reported the Westword. Daniell Goff, who hired the personal injury law firm to represent her after she was involved in a car accident, brought suit against the firm alleging it had forced her to settle for less than her case was worth. She also alleged that one of the firm’s attorneys, Chad Hemmat, had used offensive language to describe her, calling her a “toothless cootie.”
