    Significant Representative Matters

    Obtained a defense verdict in a contested liability case involving a scaffold collapse at a construction site which resulted in 3 individuals with serious injuries, including one rendered a paraplegic as a result of a burst fracture in his spine.

    Represented a Veterinarian and obtained a verdict for less than the offer in a complicated case involving the death of a show horse where the claim was that the Vet's negligence caused the death of the horse.  Significant issues existed as to liability but also damages as we believed the horse to be of considerably less value than claimed.  Ultimately the jury agreed with our view that the co-defendant horse farm was primarily responsible (it also found comparative negligence against the plaintiff) as well as our view of the value of the horse. 

    Drove a favorable settlement on behalf of a Chinese restaurant in a complex multi-party claim resulting from a fire which destroyed a strip mall shopping center in Greenwich.

    Obtained a defendant's verdict in a contested liability case involving serious injuries after plaintiff declined our offer of $250,000.
