Cases of success

Claims that impacted our history.


  • Testimonial
    EVICTION FROM PROPERTY RENTED TO GAS STATION,

    Owner of a property on which a gas station operated had his real estate property seized by the city administration. The payment of the rent had been made beforehand, but the contract included a clause conditioning the reimbursement only after an indemnification received from the public entity. The tenant, breaking the contract, filed a claim to receive back the amount paid as rent. The claim was granted and the Court decision was maintained. It was then that the Firm join the proceedings, when an appeal was already waiting to be judged in Brasilia. We approached the ministers in order to understand the mistake in the original ruling, which caused the decision to be voided. Back in the Court, after several appeals and personal claims to the judges, the lawsuit was found ungrounded, releasing the client from the penalties he had incurred.

  • Testimonial
    MEDICATION FOR A BABY AFFLICTED BY PARALYSIS,

    After seeing in the newspaper that a baby afflicted with paralysis could not have access to the medication it needed from the State Pharmacy, Silva & Berthold Attorneys at Law contacted the child’s family through the news reporters, and proposed to articulate with the Department of Health. The Firm already had expertise with such claims and was ready to appeal to the Justice System, with no cost for the family. Fortunately, however, the claim was not necessary, for due to intense action at the administrative level, it was possible to obtain the medication for the low-income family without further delay.

  • Testimonial
    AGREEMENT TO SUSPEND PUBLIC CIVIL LAWSUITS,

    The State District Attorney’s Office filed several claims against a company in the area of telecommunications, so as to adequate and improve its services. Instead of starting a conflict with that institution, the Firm began a series of negotiations, keeping the conversations with the DA’s Office open and transparent. After long and hard negotiations, agreements were signed to end the lawsuits and implement several measures to qualify the service.

  • Testimonial
    CLAIM TO ENROLL STUDENT WHO WAS VICTIM OF PREJUDICE,

    A student with special needs had his enrollment rejected right before classes started in a traditional School in Porto Alegre, with no acceptable justification. After further investigating the case, it was found that the rejection was grounded on prejudice, due to the student’s limitations. What happened was that the student had already studied in that school until the 8th grade, and the enrollment rejection coincided with the change of the Principal and with the new administration. Our Firm filed a claim to enforce the student’s right to enroll and to recover the scholarship, which had also been canceled. The claim was granted on the same day, allowing the student to resume his studies and interaction with his peers, teachers and friends. Later, the student was indemnified for having been exposed to this situation.

  • Testimonial
    INDEMNIFICATION FOR LOSS OF STOCKS,

    A client, a stock exchange investor, suffered losses because of a professional working for a Stock Broker Firm, who lost his stocks in unauthorized high-risk negotiations. An administrative claim was filed at Bovespa – Stock Exchange, which determined the value of the stocks the client was entitled to; however, the Broker Firm filed a lawsuit, temporarily suspending the decision. By means of an injunction, we managed to suspend the court order so as to reinstate the administrative decision that had ordered the payment. This led to our Firm and the Broker Firm to sign an out of court agreement to terminate the process, obtaining a millionaire indemnification for the client.
