In a real estate development case, Mr. Hyman represented an investor and after a 2 week trial in June, 2014, obtained a verdict against the defendants for fraud, breach of fiduciary duty and breach of contract of $6.5 million. This included an award of punitive damages. This speaks to his legal acumen and ability to analyze and present complex issues.
