The largest judgment ever against a single individual, against Ira Einhorn for the murder of his girlfriend, Holly Maddux.

Estate of Holly Maddux v. Ira Einhorn: We obtained the largest judgment ever against a single individual, a $907 million verdict against Ira Einhorn for the murder of his girlfriend, Holly Maddux. Perhaps known as the most egregious murder in Philadelphia’s history, committed by one of the city’s most infamous sociopaths, Jim Beasley Sr. took on the case when he learned from the Maddux family that Einhorn was planning to write a book, which would have handsomely compensated him for telling his story. The Beasley Firm’s victory stopped Einhorn from ever seeing a penny in profit from his horrible crime and murder. The firm handled the case for free.

$104 million for September 11th victims, the first September 11th verdict.

Smith v Republic of Iraq et al: The firm won a $104 million verdict in 2003 on behalf of the families of victims of the September 11th, 2001 terror attacks, the first September 11th verdict. The verdict was directed against the Republic of Iraq, al-Qaeda, Osama bin Laden, the Taliban, and the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan. The case was tried before a Federal Judge in Manhattan. The lawyers from The Beasley Firm were the first and only to prove that the Republic of Iraq provided “material support or resources” to, and conspired with, Osama bin Laden’s al Qaeda network of terrorists. The Beasley Firm lawyers took a shrewd approach, focusing on only six defendants. We deployed expert witnesses in masterful fashion, with testimony powerful enough to convince a federal judge that a credible cause of action existed. It was a case widely scoffed at by legal observers when it was first filed. No one thought The Beasley Firm lawyers could marshal sufficiently compelling evidence. Instead, with the assistance of former CIA director R. James Woolsey, and Laurie Mylroie, Ph.D., as well as compelling satellite photos, statements from foreign Ambassadors, and volumes of exhibits, The Beasley Firm obtained the world’s first 9-11 verdict.

We were able to invest over $400,000.00 in costs to prepare this file, allowing our attorneys to enter the courtroom with no stone unturned.

Skirpan v. Catepillar , Inc. and Chrin Brothers Settlement: Ex-marine Scott Skirpan was working in a land fill when he was run over by a bulldozer. His co-workers and driver of the bulldozer fled the scene of the accident, leaving Scott helplessly pinned underneath the truck with traumatic amputations of both legs. Scott, while going into shock due to excessive blood loss, called 911 himself from his cell phone. The actual 911 emergency call was played during the trial. Cases, such as this one, require a great deal of expenses to fully investigate and prepare. Many law firms do not have the finances to be able to work up cases of this magnitude with no guarantee of the final outcome. Here at The Beasley Firm, we were able to invest over $400,000.00 in costs to prepare this file, allowing former Beasley attorneys Paul Lauricella and Slade McLaughlin to enter the courtroom with no stone unturned. The Firm’s investment led to the defendants settling the case for $16.25 million.
