On Monday, May 15th, Williams Kherkher partner Jim Hart was the guest speaker at the United Steelworkers’ District 13-2000 annual scholarship banquet. Over the years, the union has given out over $300,000 in scholarship money to children of members. In fact, in 2017, over $13,000 was awarded, and each year all of the scholarship money has been raised by Union members. Williams Kherkher has been a proud supporter of this program for many years.

Today, the trial team of Jim Hart and Steve Kherkher secured a $16.5 million-dollar verdict on behalf of two ironworkers who were injured by a crane operator during the removal and installation of a large glass window at the new Apple store on Westheimer. The workers both broke their backs when the scissor lift they were on was knocked over by the crane operator after he lost control of the crane. Maxim Crane Works, LP was held accountable for the accident and rightfully so, as the accident would not have occurred if industry regulations and standards had been followed by the crane operator and the company.
