Filing a Wrongful Death & Negligent Security Claim in Texas

His most noted victory is against the Quarry Market Mall where he convinced a jury to hand his clients a multimillion dollar verdict for the death of Luis Gutierrez. Mr. Gutierrez was murdered in a botched robbery outside the movie theater. Two hundred other major crimes had occurred prior to this murder, and the Mall’s security did not care enough to beef up their security in order to protect their patrons.

The Mall offered $40,000.00 at mediation, then arrogantly withdrew it at trial. Undaunted, Stephens aggressively fought for the family of the Mr. Gutierrez, and the jury responded with one of the larger verdicts in San Antonio wrongful death trials. Stephens then went on to win at the Fourth Court of Appeals as a divided Court, sitting en banc upheld the decision. (meaning the entire seven member court heard the case, a very rare event that happens about once per year).  Unfortunately, the pro business minded Supreme Court reversed the decision of both lower courts and the jury.
