Represented a national fast food restaurant chain in several workplace violence cases where patrons, along with the restaurant employees who came to assist, were attacked by gang members. The restaurant employees and patrons brought suit against the restaurant alleging that because the business was operating in a "high crime area" (due to prior incidents), it did not maintain the necessary, additional safeguards. The employees also brought suit outside of workers compensation. The firm ultimately had five of the cases dismissed at summary judgment and the others were settled for nominal amounts.
