Kurt founded Arnold & Itkin at the age of 25 and has since recovered billions of dollars in victories. In the last 5 years alone, Kurt has recovered more than $1 billion, including winning 10+ multi-million dollar jury verdicts and 100+ multi-million dollar settlements. Kurt believes results matter. He holds the record for the largest single-incident jury verdict in Louisiana where he won a $117 million jury verdict at trial, as well as $42 million for the largest commercial verdict in Hawaii, $44 million for the largest single amputee verdict nationwide, and $29 million for the largest settlement for an offshore death case in U.S. history.
