June 16, 2022 – Rankin Savidge negotiates settlement following cross-examination at trial in Supreme Court, Suffolk County

Partner Edward Savidge successfully negotiated a favorable settlement at trial in Suffolk County following his cross-examination of the plaintiff, who claimed multiple significant injuries following an alleged trip and fall in front of the defendant’s premises. Mr. Savidge’s cross-examination so damaged the plaintiff’s credibility that the case resolved for $15,000, less than 10% of the plaintiff’s demand at the start of the trial.
