“When NationsBank, now Bank of America, refused to honor a loan commitment to our company, my wife and I turned to Mr. Commette for help. Their refusal and subsequent law suit against us prevented us from borrowing elsewhere and we had to close our company.
During discovery, Mr. Commette and I labored though boxes of bank documents. Our persistence resulted in finding key pieces of loan committee meeting minutes. At trial, these documents as well as sound witness questioning resulted in a jury decision in our favor as well as the judge’s separate ruling on a portion in our favor.
The bank appealed, but the verdicts in our favor were upheld. The end result was the reversal of our personal guarantee debt that the bank claimed, as well as the monetary award by the jury for the value of our business loss. This was a huge swing of close to one million dollars.
Mr. Commette’s tactics, tenacity and organization ensured the success of this action.”
