Gauthier believes that his jury verdicts serve three (3) purposes:

  1. • To obtain Justice for the client and right the wrong that was inflicted upon them;
  2. • Make the corporation accept responsibility and accountability for its actions;
  3. • Serves as a pronouncement and example to other corporations that failure to follow the rules will cost them, thereby making this world a safer place for all of us.
