Highlights of 2016
We delivered results for our clients in 2016. We began the year with a month-long jury trial in Lowville, New York, defending our client against a wrongful death claim in an asbestos exposure claim. Our client was the only remaining defendant in the case, and after three and a half weeks of trial, we obtained a unanimous defense verdict.
Following our success at trial, we won a summary judgment motion dismissing a breach of contract action and awarding judgment on our client's counterclaims. After years of litigation against a major New York company, our client went from facing a multi-million dollar demand to being awarded full judgment on its counter claims.

We look forward to achieving more successful outcomes for our clients in 2017.
