The Ward Law Group Secures Justice: Antonio Brown Ordered to Pay $1.2 Million in Assault Case – Featured by TMZ Sports

In a recent legal triumph, The Ward Law Group, through the diligent efforts of attorney Michael Lotto, played a pivotal role in securing justice for a moving truck driver, Anton Tumanov. This news were featured in an article by the TMZ Sports web portal.

The former NFL star, Antonio Brown, has been ordered by a Broward County jury to pay $1.2 million in damages to Tumanov after an alleged assault nearly three years ago.

The jury's decision, reached earlier this month, came after Brown failed to respond or attend hearings related to the case. According to court records, the damages awarded include $407,000 for Tumanov's past and future medical expenses and $793,000 for past and future pain and suffering.

The incident, dating back to February 11, 2020, unfolded when Tumanov, attempting a delivery to Brown's Broward County, Fla. home, found himself in a dispute with the ex-Buccaneers receiver regarding overpayment for services. Represented by Jeffrey R. Davis of Jeffrey R. Davis P.A. and Michael Lotto of The Ward Law Group, Tumanov claimed that Brown physically assaulted him, causing severe bodily injuries and damaging his vehicle.

The legal team's tenacity in pursuing justice for Tumanov was evident as they navigated the complexities of the case. Despite Brown's failure to respond to the allegations, the jury held him liable for the damages. This outcome underscores The Ward Law Group's commitment to advocating for the rights of individuals who have been victims of violence and ensuring that responsible parties are held accountable.

The successful verdict adds another feather to the cap of The Ward Law Group, known for its dedication to providing legal representation that prioritizes the well-being and rights of its clients. As a member of the firm, Michael Lotto exemplifies the commitment to justice and accountability that defines The Ward Law Group's legal practice.

As The Ward Law Group continues its mission to serve and protect the rights of those who have suffered harm, this case stands as a testament to the firm's unwavering pursuit of justice in the face of adversity.

Another point to consider is that at The Ward Law Group, we will always defend the idea that justice reaches everyone, regardless of whether you are a person with some fame or money. Every act carries a consequence, and as adult citizens, we must be aware of that, especially in situations that involve some degree of violence.

It is also important to highlight that anger management therapies and how to learn to deal with the emotions we feel is something primordial for the harmony of the whole community. Therefore, this aspect is something that people who choose the path of violence to express emotions that they are not yet able to process as adults should also reflect on.

We will always follow the path of the center, where no extreme can condition our actions, but rather it is the values we have defined that allow us to apply reason in every situation we have to defend. That is why defining our values is a way of staying focused because we have already traced a path that keeps us in balance, which is the opposite of the mismanagement of emotions and the practice of violence as a vehicle to release what is not processed internally.

From our firm, we wish that in our community, the contexts of peace will last and that we can understand each other better and better among citizens.
