D|J|P Attorneys Obtain $647,090 Judgement
June 2017: Following a 9 day jury trial, Shareholder Jim Gilson, assisted by DJP Associates Tayler Fox and Lyndon Bradshaw, obtained a $647,090 judgment on June 29, 2017 for plaintiff Gregory Jones against Mr. Jones’ former employer, the law firm Mackey Price. Mr. Jones worked on contingency fee cases involving the diet drug Fen-Phen from 2002 to May 2005, when he abruptly developed a mental disability called dissociative amnesia, which prevented him from remembering anything prior to that date. Mr. Jones’ work at Mackey Price on those cases generated over $1 million in fees for the firm, yet the firm only paid him about 15% of those fees, instead of the 80% that he claimed he was owed. The 2017 jury trial in Utah Third District Court was after remand from Jones’ successful appeal to the Utah Supreme Court, where the Court held that Jones was entitled to a trial by jury for his unjust enrichment claim. Jones v. Mackey Price, 2015 UT 60 (2015).
