Dan Newlin: Justice for the Fletcher Family

In November 2014, the attorney Dan Newlin helped obtain a verdict of $100 million for a teenager who has been in a coma for the past two years because of severe brain damage. It is one of the largest verdicts in Orange County’s history. The verdict includes medical care payments for the past and the future, pain and suffering, punitive damages, and emotional distress for the teen’s mother Alma Fletcher.

In July 2012, Danielle Sampson was a passenger in her family’s minivan when she was hit by a bullet in the head. She was only 15 years old at the time and the stray bullet was shot by 22 year old Tyrone Mosby, a gang member. He was running from a home invasion and was firing at the owner of the home. Danielle is only able to blink her eyes and remains paralyzed after being in the hospital for several weeks. The bullet is lodged inside her skull and has not been removed.

Newlin hopes that the verdict will send a strong message to all gang members and criminals. He wants them to know that if they do wrongful acts they will be held responsible for their actions civilly and criminally.

In July 2013, the lawsuit was filed with Mosby listed as the defendant. Mosby was also found guilty in another lawsuit on seven counts that included aggravated battery and attempted first degree murder. The sentence was 30 years in jail.

Alma Fletcher is glad that Mosby is finally understanding the effects of his terrible actions, but her main concern is getting justice for her daughter. Danielle’s stepfather, Justin Fletcher, knows that no monetary award will ever make their daughter complete again, but it will help bring some degree of closure to the terrible ordeal.

Newlin was happy that he was able to help the Fletcher family obtain the best possible verdict for their case. He believes that no child or parent should ever have to go through such a tragic experience. Check out Dan Newlin on YouTube.

Currently, Newlin has been able to recover more than 150 million in damages for injury victims. His Florida office consists of 18 skilled attorneys and more than 75 employees. His office focus on auto accidents, personal injury, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, wrongful death, medical negligence, construction accidents, and wrongfully charged criminal offenses.

Adam Sender: Hedge Fund Mogol and Art Collector

Adam Sender has taken his success as a hedge fund mananger to an aesthetic level of even greater heights. He has found a immense passion not only in bringing funds together for big payouts but he has managed to gather a vast collection of modern works of living legendary artists into a stunning focal point to share with the rest of the world. The south beach area was chosen during the annual Art Basel Miami Beach for the largest exhibition of Adam Sender’s private collection. Having many homes, one of his Miami mansions was set up for the open house, which allowed him to showcase a pop-up exhibition while revisiting the sale of the home which was dormant on the real-estate market.

Curator, Sarah Aibel, arranged the exhibition called ‘Home Alone.’ She chose the works that would appear in the show which were created by Richard Prince, Chris Ofili, Rashid Johnson and Cindy Sherman. Bringing the works out of hiding, as Adam Sender puts it, was the goal so that he could show them to many of his new friends in the Miami Beach area as well as the art lovers attending. Art lovers and friends alike would be treated to 70 works from more than 1000 pieces in the Adam Sender private art collection. The collection has an estimated value of over $100 million dollars.

Adam Sender was reminded of the moments for each piece’s acquisition during an interview where he stated “It’s really nice to re-live with some of them again.” He pointed to two of the Keith Harring’s works called Tarps. “They really bring back a rush of memories.” His life between 1990 and the present can easily be documented by a timeline of art hunting and purchases. The period that it all began was just after his departure from Steve Cohen’s SAC Capital Advisors, LP and the launch of his own Exis Capital Hedge Fund company.

Adam Sender’s gift for honing in on the most lucrative capital deals is equaled by his eye for fabulous art works of today’s most talented artists. Because these artist’s pieces have appreciated so much over the past two decades, Adam states that he once purchased a Richard Prince for $100,000 in the 1990s but now Richard Prince “works aren’t really affordable.” Check out Adam Sender on LinkedIn.

Things have not always gone well for Mr. Sender as he is navigating through tough financial waters due to a lawsuit against his hedge fund whose plaintiff is Fairfax Financial Holdings, Ltd. Despite this, Adam continues to pursue and purchase new pieces for his vast collection. He has a preference for promising young artists who are about to burst on to the scene. “That’s where the excitement is. I know that I have a good eye, and I use it to buy what I know.”
