Marshall Socarras Grant of Counsel, J. Andrew Fine, along with co-counsel Daniel Devallier of New Orleans, sucessfully settled claims on behalf of a number past and current NFL athletes against individuals who solicited these athletes to participate in an ill-fated real estate investment.  The claims were part of a larger overall case that had been pending for over a year prior to Fine and Devallier’s involvement.  By thinking creatively, filing a separate lawsuit, and seeking to garnish and attach certain assets that had been overlooked or dismissed by other attorneys, Fine and Devallier were able to protect their clients who previously stood to be excluded from any settlement.  Fine and Devallier’s strategy broke an apparent stalemate between the other parties, and led to all parties participating vigorously to finalize a confidential financial settlement for Fine and Devallier’s clients.
