Representative Experience

  • Obtained summary judgment in a case wherein our insured driver client was involved in a three-vehicle collision, and Plaintiff was their rear-seat passenger and sustained injures; the Supreme Court agreed with our attorney’s argument that our defendant could not be found negligent as a matter of law, and ruled in favor of our client.
  • Granted Motion to Dismiss after Plaintiff claimed our insured driver client struck their vehicle while driving on a New Jersey expressway, and Plaintiff refused to voluntarily discontinue the action brought in the State of New York; the Supreme Court agreed with our defense that jurisdiction in New York was improper, and ruled in favor of our defendant.
  • Prevailed on appeal following Plaintiff’s claim that their vehicle was struck by our insured driver client’s vehicle while stopped at a red light, and alleged that our client left the accident scene; the Appellate Division agreed with our attorney that our client was not involved in the collision and granted appeal in favor of our client, dismissing the case.
