Dallas trial lawyer Charla Aldous represented Giovanni Homes in a case against Oncor. She won a jury verdict of $1.8 million on behalf of her client.

Charla Aldous: When I was first contacted about doing business litigation, I didn't think that I would be interested. I just couldn't see getting my heart into it. But I've done quite a few business litigation cases, and I've enjoyed them because I still see an underdog, and I love righting a wrong.

In the Giovanni Homes, the reason I took that case is one of my best friends call and said, "I need you to help me try this case." I said, "Okay, I'm there!" But I met the client first and just fell in love with him. He was a small businessman who had built his business from the bottom up - I mean, he picked himself up by his own bootstraps and has really worked hard. This company Oncor came in and just treated him terribly. Whether it was motivated by evil, I'm not going to say, but I am going to say that it wasn't motivated by respect for a person.

It felt good; it felt good taking them on; it felt good holding them accountable for something that was really insignificant in their cooperate world but was life changing for my client, and I loved it.
