Frank Azar Loses Lawsuit Against Own Client

Have you been injured in an auto accident? If so, call attorney Frank Azar, "The Strong Arm." He’s been fighting insurance companies in Colorado for years and he’ll get you a $25,000 settlement. Then, you can turn around and sue Frank Azar (profiled by Westword in 2002) for half of a million dollars, claiming he pressured you to take less than you were due. 40-year-old Shawna Jimenez of Colorado Springs did just that and now an El Paso County jury has awarded her $145,000. Thanks, Frank Azar! " – Jared Jacang Maher
