Major Win Alert: Jones Jones LLC Permanently Closes 14 Cases with Settlement Day-over $100K Saved

Jones Jones LLC is pleased to share Partner Yvie Cherenfant recently hosted a successful settlement conference on behalf of a client that is in the entertainment space. With the Jones Jones’ “always be closing,” mentality top of mind, Yvie and her team coordinated with the injured workers’ firms and the carrier to set up the successful settlement conference. Together, the groups obtained authority on all cases involved and to date, Yvie and her team have settled 14 cases, saving Jones Jones’ client approximately $100,000.


“Successfully settling cases for clients is always a top priority at Jones Jones,” said Managing Partner Sarah Thomas. “We understand that drawn out cases can be a drain on clients’ valuable time and resources, so we aim to settle quickly and efficiently. Settlement conferences can pave the way for considerable success for the future of our clients’ businesses. I applaud Yvie and her team for their innovation and effectiveness in bringing these matters to a successful and beneficial conclusion.”


In preparation for the settlement conferences, the team contacted attorneys from other firms with whom they have strong relationships and who are frequently in court together. Leaning into these relationships created a positive and productive work environment from the outset. The team worked to obtain reasonable authority and presented initial offers that were impressive, accurate and fair. With the large number of cases faced during the settlement conference, it was important to start with the end goal in mind. In offering a strong first offer, the team cut negotiations to save both parties’ time and effort.


“Perhaps one of the best attributes of settlement conferences, aside from the ability to settle multiple cases at one time, is they allow for negotiations to take place in a more relaxed and friendly environment, creating better working conditions for all,” said Cherenfant. “These settlement conferences would not have borne fruit without the work of all parties involved, including the client and the carrier who collaborated closely to agree on solutions that work best for all parties.”


The teams at Jones Jones continues to work to coordinate settlement days similar to the ones Yvie Cherenfant and her team recently concluded. If you or your client have a number of cases you think would benefit from a settlement conference, please reach out to
