Bob Edgett used to work on the department as a Traffic Investigator. He gave me a list to check for law suits every month and send him a billing. Edgett liked and appreciated my work and spoke to Robert Townsend an in-house investigator for Gage, Mazursky, Schwartz, Angelo and Kussman, a heavy hitting Beverly Hills law firm. I would do many famous cases for them including the Heather O’Rourke, (child star from the Poltergeist movies) wrongful death suit against Kaiser Hospital. Hilda Salazar case against Tower Corporation, (First Slum Lording case in Los Angeles.) The William Bright accidental shooting in Banning, California where the host had a wedding on his ranch, western style where everyone was in western attire and was provided with alcohol and loaded weapons. An accidental discharge shot the victim’s foot off. A spoliation of evidence claim was added against the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department for impounding the bullet for evidence and then losing it. One other case was the Brandenburg A-4 plane crash which was a products liability/wrongful death case. There were other cases. Life was good and things seemed to be turning around for me. #RagsToRiches
