Co-founding Partner Keith More Donates $100,000 to DePaul University College of Law for Endowment Scholarship Fund

Co-founding Partner Keith More has generously donated $100,000 to set up an endowment scholarship fund at his alma mater DePaul University College of Law. The endowed fund is named “Keith and Paige More Breasties Endowed Scholarship” – and will serve to provide recognition and financial assistance to students enrolled in the College of Law, who have good academic standing and financial need, with a preference given to students who have been impacted, either directly or indirectly, by breast or ovarian cancer. Mr. More’s daughter, Paige More, underwent a preventive double mastectomy after testing positive for the BRCA1 gene that is known to cause cancer. Ms. More has since become an advocate and founded a nonprofit organization, The Breasties, which is dedicated to supporting young women affected by breast and ovarian cancer. By setting up this endowment, Mr. More is honoring his daughter’s ongoing fight with breast and ovarian cancer as well as honoring his mother Cookie’s legacy. Mr. More, a proud alumnus of the College of Law, is grateful for all the opportunities afforded to him and wishes to help future students.

Bentley & More Partner Greg Bentley Announces Filing of Insurance Bad Faith Lawsuit Against Insurance Giant CSAA for Underinsuring Families Who Lost Their Homes in 2017 Wildfires

On December 18, 2018 Greg Bentley of Bentley & More LLP held a press conference to announce the filing of an insurance bad faith lawsuit by several families against AAA, known as CSAA Insurance Group in Northern California, claiming the insurance giant systematically underinsured their homes before the 2017 Wildfires destroyed their properties. Because of AAA’s actions, these families have been left hundreds of thousands of dollars short of the cost to rebuild their homes. Despite purchasing AAA homeowner insurance policies they thought would take care of them when disaster strikes, many cannot even begin rebuilding their homes, moving back into their communities, and trying to rebuild their lives. Mr. Bentley, along with co-counsel Chris Kreeger of Rosenthal & Kreeger, represents five families whose properties were damaged and who are suing CSAA.

The event was covered by the local ABC, KPIX/CBS, and KTVU/Fox stations, as well as the Santa Rosa Press Democrat.

Bentley & More Partners Greg Bentley and Clare Lucich Obtain $947,000 Verdict Against $185,000 Offer

THIS JUST IN: Bentley & More partners Greg Bentley and Clare Lucich obtained a $947,000 verdict against Corona Del Mar Properties LLC. The offer going into Trial was $185,000! Defense asked the jury to award only $50,000 to $100,000, but clearly the jury did not buy the defense’s attempt to discount justice. In this case, the Plaintiff slipped and fell on a freshly painted walkway at a retail property and suffered serious injuries to her shoulder and bicep requiring surgery. The Plaintiff was additionally diagnosed with Neurogenic Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, a nerve compression disorder resulting in pain, numbness, and tingling. Great work Greg and Clare!
