Defense Litigation Results

we are good at what we do

We have been trial counsel in several groundbreaking decisions in the industries we serve

Collectively, our attorneys have tried dozens of cases to verdict, including many cases where the plaintiffs’ demands were millions of dollars.

In 2018 we achieved a defense verdict on behalf of a railroad client in a grade crossing accident case tried in Chittenden County, VT, with a demand that amounted to $34 million in compensatory and punitive damages.

We have obtained multiple defense verdicts, summary judgments, substantive dismissals, and forum non conveniens dismissals.

A number of these were achieved in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas, recognized by the American Tort Reform Association as the #1 “Judicial Hell-Hole” in the country, including a recent asbestos case where we convinced the trial judge to award summary judgment on the grounds of insufficient evidence.
