J. Nicholas Strasser Prevails in Appellate Division

J. Nicholas Strasser successfully defended an appeal from plaintiff, which attempted to overturn a jury verdict in favor of the Firm’s client.  In the matter of Robinson v. Phillips, Nick had previously obtained a jury verdict which found that plaintiff was 70% at fault for the underlying motor vehicle accident, thereby dismissing the cause of action against Allstate New Jersey Insurance Company’s insured driver.  Plaintiff had twice moved for the trial court to grant a new trial and both requests were denied.  On appeal, Nick successfully convinced the Court that the trial judge did not abuse its discretion in denying those requests for a new trial.  The verdict in favor of the firm’s client was affirmed accordingly.
