On July 23, 2021, Schlam Stone & Dolan partner Jeffrey M. Eilender and counsel Joshua Wurtzel secured a significant victory for their client in federal court in Arizona, winning almost $100,000 in attorneys’ fees following a successful summary-judgment motion. In Arizona, courts have the discretion to shift fees in contract cases. And over the defendants’ objections, the court did just that, agreeing with Eilender and Wurtzel that it was appropriate to award their client attorneys’ fees, and rejecting the overwhelming majority of defendants’ challenges to a fee award.
