    AlvaradoSmith Victory Recognized by Top Verdict for 4th Largest Bench Award in California for 2018

Top Verdict has recognized the $7.1 million victory in Elks Building Association of Santa Ana v. J.K. Properties, Inc., secured by Kevin A. Day and Jacob M. Clark as the 4th largest bench award in California in 2018 and made its list of Top 20 Court Awards in California.

The economy of California is the largest in the U.S. and serves as a haven for out-of-state lawsuits making it one of the most litigious states in the union. With such a massive quantity of litigation, this is quite the recognition.
