Black woman-owned law firm recovers a million dollars

A Black Woman-Owned Law Firm in California and New York, known as Givens & Larmond Law Group LLP, along with their co-counsel Jessica C. Ayala, settled a seven-figure lawsuit against world-renowned hotel chain Hyatt Corporation and a construction company after their client fell through the roof while he attended a Labor Day Rooftop Pool Party. The client sustained significant injuries, including a torn meniscus and a torn ACL that required multiple surgeries.

“This should never have happened! Imagine attending a party with your friends and the floor beneath you collapses and changes your life forever,” said partner Briana Givens. “We firmly believe that representation makes a difference! We knowing that historically, cases of people of color are underreported due to misdiagnosis or unconscious bias about pain tolerance.”

Briana continued: “We also know that gender, race, disability and sexual orientation play a big role when it comes to jury perception. For these reasons, we tackle these issues early by listening to our customers and ensuring their stories are heard by the opposing side. Having a lawyer who can deal with these issues from the start can make a difference in the outcome of a case.”

Givens & Larmond Law Group is pleased that they were finally able to bring resolution to their client and help her begin to rebuild her life after her life-changing injury.
