Partner, David Spoto, recovered the sum of $580,000 for the victim of a motor vehicle accident. A settlement was reached after extensive pre-trial discovery and the retention of expert witnesses by the parties. Spoto utilized formal mediation conferences, in the presence of a third party mediator, to help resolve the matter and to avoid the uncertainty and significant costs associated with further litigation. “Not every lawsuit should go to trial,” said Spoto. “This was a case that could be settled without compromising the reasonable value of our client’s injuries and damages.”
