Smoking Cigars

A Charlotte, NC, lawyer purchased a box of very rare and expensive cigars, then insured them against fire among other things. Within a month, having smoked his entire stockpile of these great cigars and without yet having made even his first premium payment on the policy, The lawyer filed a claim against the insurance company. In his claim, the lawyer stated the cigars were lost “in a series of small fires.”

The insurance company refused to pay, citing the obvious reason: that the man had consumed the cigars in the normal fashion.

The lawyer sued….and won!

In delivering the ruling the judge agreed with the insurance company that the claim was frivolous. The Judge stated nevertheless, that the lawyer held a policy from the company in which it had warranted that the cigars were insurable and also guaranteed that it would insure them against fire, without defining what is considered to be unacceptable fire, and was obligated to pay the claim.

Rather than endure a lengthy and costly appeal process, the insurance company accepted the ruling and paid $15,000.00 to the lawyer for his loss of the rare cigars lost in the “fires.” NOW FOR THE BEST PART…

After the lawyer cashed the check, the insurance company had him arrested on 24 counts of ARSON!!!! With his own insurance claim and testimony from the previous case being used against him, the lawyer was convicted of intentionally burning his insured property and was sentenced to 24 months in jail and a $24,000.00 fine.

This is a true story and was the 1st place winner in the recent Criminal Lawyers Award Contest.

The previous plumber I had out couldn’t fix the problem. Western Rooter cleared out the clogged sewer line using the latest technology and even used a camera to make sure the line was perfectly clear.


S R. from Anaheim says:

Carlos called and spoke to my father (Senior Citizen on a fixed income) soon after the initial call to Stefanie and he scheduled to come out to see the issue, quote the job and schedule a time to make the repairs with my father. I must say that my father was extemely happy to hear the quote was reasonable and that they could come the following day to start repairs. There were three gentlemen that came, but since Carlos was the last to leave, he’s the only name I have. These three fellows were excellent! They were curtious, did great work and had great personalities!


F L. from Arcadia says:

Justin the plumbing specialist was professional and quick; he had everything cleared out within 15 minutes. I will for sure use they again; doesn’t get better than this.
