individuals and businesses in connection with commercial, real estate,
bankruptcy and other types of civil litigation. He has had
numerous trials with successful results in California State Courts,

his clients to enjoy an early recovery prior to the expenditure of
substantial attorney fees. However, Mr. Mann’s results have
also included a number of judgments and verdicts well into the “seven

trial verdict well in excess of a million dollars, including several
hundred thousand dollars in punitive damages, for
breach of fiduciary duty related to a partner’s dishonesty with Mr.
Mann’s client in connection with the collection of rental revenue from
a jointly owned apartment building, a judgment in excess of one million
dollars against an individual who solicited Mr. Mann’s clients to
invest in a restaurant franchise, and a settlement with a brokerage
company that was large enough to allow an elderly client to renew his
plans to retire despite having lost virtually all of his retirement
funds through careless investments made on his behalf.
Mr. Mann also is involved in a
wide array of pre-judgment litigation procedures. He has obtained
preliminary injunctions on numerous occasions which have had the effect

dollars, over the years, which have enabled his clients to recover
money that was owed to them.
