Our Partner, Glenn A. Ricketti, Esq. recently wrapped up a trial involving a hotly disputed, intersectional collision, motor vehicle case between the client’s work van and the plaintiffs car where plaintiff alleged five herniated discs and proposed future back surgery. Halfway through the trial the Plaintiff’s settlement demand remained over $225,000. Following Glenn’s cross examination of the Plaintiff, in which Glenn caught the Plaintiff lying about his past medical condition, the case settled for a mere $7,500.
After the resolution of the case the client’s President provided the following note to the insurer:
“My company was represented by Mr. Glenn Ricketti in a recent jury trial. I wanted to reach out to you and express what a pleasure it was to have him handle my case. He was extremely organized for the trial and prepared myself and our witness so that we both felt confident entering the courtroom. The case/trial was estimated to last three days but turned out to only last three hours with a settlement.
As much as I would rather never see an attorney again, if the need should arise, I would feel relieved to have Glenn representing [our company] again. I would like to thank Margolis Edelstein for this case’s WIN!!!”
