California "wrongful death" law firm will take on the murder case of Austin Wenner and Jessica Lewis
According to the website California Headline The Ledger Law Firm, a wrongful death law firm with offices in Seattle, announced that its attorney David Mann, Esq. will be taking on the case of Jessica Lewis and Austin Wenner whose dismembered bodies washed ashore inside suitcases on a West Seattle beach in June. Both had been shot multiple times. Their landlord, 62-year-old Michael Dudley of Burien, has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder and entered a not guilty plea. He remains in King County Jail on $5 million bail.
Mann, the firm said is "an experienced litigator and avowed humanitarian," and Mann said "The case represents a test of the law itself. There are certain acts that truly push the boundaries of what it means to live in a civil society. If we are to have rule of law and a just society, we must punish those who transgress the law in such a heinous way. Getting justice for the families of these victims will be a major step in that direction.”
Mann serves as The Ledger Law Firm’s, Head of Litigation, in its downtown Seattle office. His practice spans matters related to personal injury and mass torts. Mann’s background also includes medical malpractice, workers compensation, employment law, real property and trust and estate litigation. He is a 2012 graduate of Gonzaga School of Law.
