    When it is shown that greed trumps providing competent medical care, such a result makes sense and provides a service to all of us for the future. Congratulations.

    Would a Liability Waiver signed by the customer i.e. Dr. Vaid prevented him from receiving the award?

  • James Cunningham

    Ms. Urso, as a member of the jury, Ms. DeToledo and her partner Ms. Ingraham made their case due to the damaging testimony of the defendants. Mr. DeFrancesco had no bearing on the verdict. It was a tough case to sit on, but I definitely agree with your opinion on Attorney DeToledo. However, Attorney Ingraham also shined on the case as well.

  • Lindy R. Urso, Esq.

    I know Attorney DeToledo did a fantastic job - that is obvious - but I believe the case was won by her expert witness, Charles DeFrancesco. Anyone considering a a suit in this area ought to seek him out. Congratulations to all, especially Dr. Vaid who, by all accounts, is a really nice man.
