The trial team of Carl Amala and Jamie Usera successfully negotiated a highly disputed wrongful death case on behalf of the Estate of Karen Greenstein against the State of Oregon and others. Trial was scheduled to begin on August 13, 2019 in Medford. The case settled against the State of Oregon for $500,000, a store that sold beer to the drunk driver for $500,000, and $100,000 from the drunk driver's insurance company. (The limit of insurance coverage.) Mrs. Greenstein, a highly acclaimed 911 operator, was killed in a head-on wrong-way I-5 automobile accident on March 27, 2014 when a drunk driver slammed into her vehicle, literally cutting it in half. The drunk driver had a blood alcohol level of .24%, three times Oregon's legal limit.
