Our Verdicts and Settlements

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, LLC, 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.

Verdicts
