The Yount case was a real life David vs. Goliath case. On one hand, you have the Yount family from a small town in Tennessee. A normal family, as we all think of normal: not lawyers, not doctors, not rich bankers. Just regular people who had something really bad happen to them. On the other side, you have Johnson & Johnson pharmaceutical companies. One of the largest companies—not just in the United States, but in the entire world.
Johnson & Johnson hurt their child. Johnson & Johnson disfigured their child. When the Younts learned about how they did it and why they did it, they said it doesn’t matter where we have to go or what we have to do, we won’t rest until we have done everything in our power to hold them responsible.
We stood and fought with them every step of the way, every day in trial for three weeks. Literally working around the clock against insurmountable odds. So when the jury came back and said Johnson & Johnson was guilty, they had lied, it was a vindication saying it’s not okay that just because you’re a company that has more money or more access to lawyers or that you’re some large corporation that you can get away with hurting people.
When we take on a client’s case, that’s the mindset we take on. How would we do it if it was us? If it was me personally? How would I do it if it was someone representing my brother or my father? It’s like you’re a family member and you should be treated the same way that we would want to be treated.
