Thomas Scolaro obtains $1,045,000 settlement for young woman raped at hotel in Key West

J.J. vs. Hyatt Vacation Club and Majestic Security and Investigations, and Mark Holmes, individually.

Attorney Thomas Scolaro obtained a $1,000,000 settlement on behalf of Plaintiff, J.J., who was raped while cleaning a room at the Hyatt Sunset Hotel in Key West, FL. Attorney Scolaro was able to prove that the criminal assailant had been left alone to sleep out by the hotel pool to smoke crack. This assailant roamed around undetected by any security or hotel staff for several hours. He then stumbled into a room being cleaned by Plaintiff, a young Haitian housekeeper, and brutally raped her. Attorney Scolaro secured a $1,000,000 settlement on behalf of J.J. just before trial.

I have known Ira for several decades and without a doubt he represents the best of the profession- a never ending commitment to his clients and a perpetual desire for learning and sharing his expertise with his colleagues. Richard
★★★★★
I found, and still find, that Ira’s firm will evaluate the case fairly and provide the client with a reasonably expectation of the process involved and will avoid giving false hope where there is none. Also Ira’s firm consistently keeps in constant touch with the client as well as referring attorneys so each knows the progress of a case. Finally I can tell you that if I personally were injured, Ira Leesfield is the first person I would call. Michael Browning
