Los Angeles Attorney Awarded for Top Labor & Employment Verdict


Attorney Steven Rubin won the Top Verdict award for his work on Mecredy v. Sonic Industries Inc. that earned the plaintiff $474,004.00 in compensation.

Steven Rubin, the founding employment attorney at Rubin Law Corporation, was recently awarded Top Verdict for his work on Mecredy v. Sonic Industries Inc. This accolade recognizes lawyers and law firms that have obtained high jury verdicts in each state, practice area, and year. Attorney Steven Rubin was able to win $474,004.00 in compensation for his client’s defamation and interference with employment case.

The plaintiff James Mecredy was employed for 27 years at Sargent Aerospace LLC, Sonic Division. Mecredy was laid off in December 2014, paid a severance, and subsequently hired by another company. This new company was a supplier to Sargent Aerospace. Upon learning of the plaintiff’s new position, Sargent representatives paid a visit to his new employer. Mecredy was dismissed shortly thereafter. The second employer later confirmed the plaintiff’s termination through a voicemail to the Sargent representatives.

Mecredy claimed that Sargent Aerospace LLC, Sonic Division had slandered his reputation and interfered with his employment at a new company. The plaintiff alleged that Sargent employees pressured his new employer into terminating him in an attempt to avoid competition. The actions of the Sargent employees consequently led to lost income, emotional distress, and a damaged reputation. Sonic Division offered a settlement in the amount of $75,000.00. The jury, however, compensated Mecredy in the amount of $474,004.00.
