A jury in Denver this week awarded over $2 million, including $1.5 million in punitive damages, to a former client who said a Colorado personal injury law firm pressured her to settle her case for less than it was worth.

Chad Hemmat of Anderson Hemmat & Levine has said he plans to appeal the verdict, Law Week Colorado reports.

Ex-client Daniell Goff, who was represented by Patric LeHouillier, claimed that Hemmat insulted her by calling her a “toothless cootie," the article notes.

An earlier article on the Latest Word page of Westword provides additional details about the case.
