Our trial defense group is one of the finest in Illinois, as
confirmed by statistics maintained by the Illinois Jury Verdict
Reporters. Consequently, plaintiffs' lawyers are aware of our
reputation and we are routinely able to negotiate either voluntary
dismissals of our clients in the early stages of litigation, or
highly advantageous settlements. This proves to be a highly
beneficial tactic for our clients who have been named as a
defendant in mass tort litigation.
In mass tort litigations, plaintiffs' lawyers are notorious for
naming a bevy of defendants in hopes of leveraging a global
settlement. Using our trial experience, our firm is able to take a
zealous approach at the outset of the litigation in order to
reverse the plaintiff' s leverage and create a favorable settlement
environment for our clients.
We have successfully used this strategy in defending clients
against product liability claims involving heavy machinery,
consumer products, pharmaceuticals, and electronic products. In
addition, we have developed expertise in toxic tort litigation
involving a wide variety of production processes and chemicals
including asbestos, benzene, pesticides, PCB' s and dioxin.
Further, we have successfully defended our clients in claims
arising out of alleged exposure to black mold, lead-containing
products, and formaldehyde-treated products.
Ruberry, Stalmack & Garvey's resolution-oriented focus
begins with our initial review of each case. We stand out among law
firms in our attention to early evaluation. Rather than providing a
general discussion of the facts and law, our initial analysis of a
case will advise of multiple litigation strategies and provide a
realistic exposure evaluation with attention to cost/benefit
considerations. Our attention to detail continues throughout our
handling of each claim. We ensure that our clients are actively
kept apprised of all litigation activities, rather than providing
them with lengthy and mundane quarterly reports. In short, we take
pride in providing the very best defense counsel to each of our
