Misrepresentation

Colorado Springs, CO: (May-07-08) Shawna Jimenez of Colorado Springs brought a lawsuit against attorney Frank Azar, popularly known as Frank "The Strong Arm" Azar, alleging that she was cheated by his television commercials, which promise big settlements from insurance companies. The 40-year-old woman alleged that she was injured in a car crash in 2004, and was subsequently coerced to take a settlement of $25,000. Jimenez' legal counsel alleged that the law firm made clients take quick settlements and did not fight sufficiently for their clients.

Azar's attorney says Jimenez willingly agreed to the settlement. Court papers show that El Paso County jurors acquitted Azar's firm and one of his attorneys of theft and false advertising, but the defendants were found guilty of negligence and misrepresentation. As part of a settlement reached, Shawna Jimenez was awarded $145,000 in damages, resolving the lawsuit. Azar stated that he will appeal the court's decision.
