Saalfield Shad, P.A.
Jacksonville, Florida

June 4, 2018 – Jacksonville, FL – Saalfield Shad, P.A. attorneys representing three different clients in different cases obtain defense verdicts for all three clients.

Saalfield Shad attorneys, Bill Stone and Susan Bird obtained a defense verdict after a week-­‐long trial on behalf of a long term care client in a lawsuit alleging negligence and violation of residents’ rights.

In another case that went to trial the same week, attorney Jenifer Worley obtained a defense verdict on behalf of a hospital in a lawsuit brought by a plaintiff who alleged to have sustained injuries at the hospital.

“So many cases settle before trial, but when a case does go to trial, our experienced trial attorneys are fully prepared,” said Joseph Stokes, managing partner of the firm. “Three defense verdicts in three different cases in two weeks, speaks directly to the quality of representation we bring to each case.”

In a third case that went to trial the following week, attorney Richard Stoudemire represented a construction company in a case that involved a workers’ compensation claim for an injured worker who fell from scaffolding and suffered severe injuries. As of the time of trial, the medicals in the case exceeded three million dollars. The case was a complex one and Stoudemire represented one of two potential responsible employers. At the conclusion of the trial, the judge entered a final order completely exonerating the firm’s client from all responsibility.
