GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY AND MAKING IT A SAFER, BETTER PLACE
TO LIVE FOR ALL OF US
Jeff considers himself to be very fortunate in many ways. For the past 3 decades he has had the privilege of meeting and representing many wonderful people who were injured, sometimes devastatingly so, by the irrational carelessness of others. He has thoroughly enjoyed working with these clients in doing everything possible to help them and to make our community safer for all of us.
JIO Law has a program to help both our injured clients and the worthwhile charitable organizations that help to make our community a better place to live. Beginning 2010, Jeff is reducing his legal fees by 5% on all cases and that money will be donated to different charitable organizations. The organizations will receive money they desperately need in order to continue doing their noble work.
MAKING CHANGE: HERE ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF HOW JIOLAW HAS CHANGED
OUR COMMUNITY FOR THE BETTER
• A $250,000 jury verdict awarded against a fire alarm company for fire damage to a Paradise Valley home resulted in the company changing its installation procedures so they no longer placed transformers in closets where the build up of heat from the transformer could ignite clothing and start a fire. Douglas v. Safeguard Security
• A $90,000 jury verdict awarded against the City of Scottsdale for broken ribs resulted in the City moving the stop sign at 66th Street and Chaparral closer to the intersection, enabling nighttime drivers stopping at the stop sign to be able to see around the dense bushes that had previously obstructed their view. Sucher v. City of Scottsdale
• A $500,000 settlement reached in a case where an elderly resident broke her hip by falling out of her assisted living facility’s golf cart resulted in the facility installing seat belts on all of its golf carts used to transport its residents. Luster v. Chandler Villas
• A $3.2 million dollar settlement reached in a case involving a fire at an apartment complex where the complex permitted tenants to use portable barbeques on their patios resulted in the prohibition of tenant patio barbeques and the installation of safely positioned community barbeques to take their place.
