Over the course of a year and half while trial is being delayed for various reasons, they ready it for trial preparing 25 pre-trial motions, interviewing witnesses, etc.   The case settles for Plaintiff after a voluntary settlement conference after Solange agrues successfully on multiple motions pre-trial in limine and before Steve selects a jury in OC Superior Court. 


Confidential settlement in a case is Orange County Superior Court (Complex Panel).  Solange defended an innocent business owner and real estate developer, his elderly mother and their company against investor charges of running a “ponzi scheme.” They obtain a walk away settlement after 3 days of trial in Orange County Superior Court after 5 years of litigation by the Plaintiffs. Solange and Steve also “rescued” this case, stepping into it, when the OC Superior Court was about to grant terminating sactions against their clients.  The case settles after Solange files and argues multiple successful pre-trial motions in limine which essentially take the “steam” out of key components of the Plaintiffs’ case and evidence they intend to introduce before the jury.  The case settles after Steve conducts jury selection (voir dire) and before any evidence is introduced  or a single witness is sworn.
