Attorneys Jae Oh and Alan Fuchsberg successfully settled a civil rights case where a prisoner lost more than 60% of her vision because the jail failed to provide proper medical care. Even though our client repeatedly complained of deteriorating vision, she was not taken to an ophthalmologist for over six months.

Shockingly, this occurred even though the Bureau of Prisons was notified several times that the surgery had to be done immediately to save our client’s vision. Through diligent and passionate advocacy, Jae and Alan settled this case on behalf of this incarcerated woman.
