Palm Beach Gardens, FL – Clark Fountain’s Jennifer Dinetz has obtained a confidential seven-figure settlement against an apartment complex for the family of a graduate student who was shot and killed due to its negligent security in Tallahassee, Florida.

On January 27, 2022, Makayla Bryant, a 22-year old graduate student at the Florida A&M University, tragically lost her life while riding as a passenger within the apartment complex. Dinetz was hired by the victim’s parents to investigate the circumstances surrounding their daughter’s homicide. Her investigation revealed that the property had a history of violent criminal incidents, including homicides, assaults, robberies, shootings, and drug dealing, yet management failed to take action to ensure the community and residents were safe.

After filing a lawsuit, Dinetz successfully secured a seven-figure settlement with the owners and management company for the residential community on behalf of the grieving family. This is a testament to Dinetz’s exceptional legal skills, tenacity, and dedication to achieving justice for her clients.

Jennifer Dinetz is an experienced trial attorney who focuses her practice on representing clients and their families who have suffered catastrophic injuries or wrongful death due to premises liability, product defects, negligent road design, electrocutions, premises liability, automobile accidents, truck accidents, electrocution, and negligent security. 

Dinetz has earned numerous notable settlements and verdicts for her clients, including a $4.9 million verdict for a single mother injured in a rear-end collision, and large confidential settlements in cases involving the tragic loss of life in a police chase and a tree-trimmer who was electrocuted.

Clark, Fountain, La Vista, Littky-Rubin, and Whitman congratulate Jennifer Dinetz on this significant achievement and are proud to have her on our team.
