Many lawyers call themselves "trial lawyers" but never actually try cases to juries. Companies and Insurance adjusters know which lawyers actually try cases, and take that into account when deciding when and how much to resolve cases. At Holman Schiavone, we are proud of the fact that we actually try cases in front of juries for our clients. Below is a sampling of our successful jury verdicts.

  • In February 2006, we obtained a $13.9 million verdict in a false imprisonment claim.
  • In September 2005, we worked with another attorney to obtain a $13 million dollar verdict in a Benzene exposure case. We have numerous other cases pending against a major oil company for injuries caused by Benzene exposure, and are also investigating cases involving rail workers exposed to dioxins. The award was for compensatory damages and the jury found that punitive damages were warranted, however, the case settled before a punitive award was issued by the jury.
