October 18, 2019 Congrats to Jim Wilkens, John Fetters, Rachel Wallace, Caryn Jorgensen, Jennifer Seeley, and the entire trial team from Stokes Lawrence on their defense verdict on behalf of Alaska Airlines. And thanks to the trial jury for their service, as well as everyone who put their trust in the system. It was a privilege to be part of this success story, and kind of cool to go to trial in Alaska and take in its amazing landscape.
