Andrew Fraser, a senior partner at Laddey Clark & Ryan, LLP, will speak to other attorneys at the New Jersey Association for Justice’s Educational Foundation’s Boardwalk Seminar 2019.
Mr. Fraser will speak in the Master of Advocacy presentation at The Boardwalk Seminar, which will be held on Wednesday, May 8 at Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City, NJ. This presentation features some of the most successful attorneys in New Jersey.
Mr. Fraser, who is Co-Chair of the Firm’s Personal Injury Practice and the founder and leader of the Blue Suit Trial Strategies consultancy team, has 30 years of experience litigating personal injury cases, with a concentration in cases involving permanent damage to the spine. He has a long track record of significant verdicts, including more than a dozen auto accident cases that resulted in verdicts of more than $1 million in damages, with many in excess of $3 million. He also obtained the largest personal injury verdict for someone injured while operating an automobile in New Jersey in 2014. In all of these cases, the insurance companies refused to make any settlement offers that were remotely reasonable and forced a jury to decide the damages.
Mr. Fraser, a Certified Civil Trial Attorney, and his team have developed a concentration in handling catastrophic elevator failure cases with recent verdicts of $2 million (Federal Court, Nevada), $3.98 million and $8.1 million (New Jersey). All of those verdicts were against Schindler Elevator Corporation in Morristown, New Jersey. Mr. Fraser has been hired by other attorneys across the country to consult or take cases to trial against Schindler Elevator Corporation and other elevator maintenance companies.
