The largest legal settlement in American history resulted in an estimated $300 billion payout from tobacco companies to state governments, including an additional $50 billion in punitive damages. The lead trial attorney from Washington state was Inner Circle Member Paul Luvera. He was chosen to represent the State of Washington due to a career of multi-million dollar verdicts in several states including a $44 million verdict in Washington, a $29 million verdict in Oregon, and a $20 million verdict in Idaho.
Gerry Spence, a long-time friend of Luvera's, has said, "I have never in my many years met a man I admire as much as Paul Luvera. He has been a role model for me and for countless others. He is what I call a real lawyer - no pretense, you get what you see, and what you see is an honest man who has become immensely creative and skillful in response to his insatiable passion for justice."
