Sean M. Ellsworth Speaker at the American College of Trial Lawyer’s 2009 Annual Meeting










Boston, MA (PRWEB) November 4, 2009

Sean M. Ellsworth recently participated as a panel speaker at the American College of Trial Lawyer’s 2009 Annual Meeting. The prestigious organization invited Mr. Ellsworth to speak on the topic of “The Dark Side of Technology in Jury Trials” after his successful defense in the case of United States v. Serge Francois, which involved a federal Internet pharmacy prosecution in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida. After a two-and-a-half month trial and over one week of jury deliberations, the judge declared a mistrial due to juror misconduct, specifically because a juror had conducted outside research using the Internet — leading to a front-page article in the New York Times titled, “Mistrial By Google.” After the mistrial, the United States dismissed the indictment against Francois and returned approximately 0,000 it had seized.

Sean M. Ellsworth is the founding member and managing partner of the Miami, Florida-based Ellsworth Law Firm, P.A. The firm specializes in complex criminal and civil litigation. Mr. Ellsworth, who is “AV Rated” by Martindale Hubbell and is a member of the Florida Bar and the Massachusetts Bar, was also recently a featured speaker at the recent Southeastern Health Care Fraud Institute in Atlanta, Georgia.

Robert Allard, Law Firm of Corsiglia, McMahon & Allard Named 2009 Trial Lawyer of the Year



Robert Allard, 2009 Trial Lawyer of the Year


San Jose, CA (PRWEB) December 9, 2009

For the second time in three years Robert Allard of the law firm Corsiglia, McMahon & Allard has been named Trial Lawyer of the Year by the Santa Clara County Trial Lawyers Association.

Allard has developed a reputation for taking tough cases where insurance companies offer little or no money to an injured victim and for providing aggressive representation which generates just compensation for his clients.

In a case earlier this year, Egbert vs. Nor Cal ReLiEF, Allard secured a .056 million arbitration award for a public school behavioral specialist who was seriously injured in a head-on car crash while traveling on a school field trip. Despite a clear case of liability, horrific injuries and hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills and lost wages, the school district’s relief fund (Nor Cal ReLiEF) never offered a penny in settlement and resorted to fighting the victim every step of the way.

In another case, a nursing assistant suffered severe neck problems that required surgery after she was rear-ended at ten miles an hour. Allard took over the case from another law firm and secured .25 million from Allstate. For years Allstate claimed that a low speed accident could not cause such medical problems. Upon taking over the case Allard successfully developed the proof that his client’s pre-existing conditions triggered the neck injuries and subsequent surgical procedures.

“Robert Allard tirelessly works for justice on behalf of his clients. He has a commitment to holding those that injure hardworking Americans personally responsible for their actions,” said Mark Sigala, President, Santa Clara County Trial Lawyers Association.

Allard began 2009 with a bang, winning a jury verdict of .85 million against a 0k offer for a motorcyclist who suffered a serious leg injury (Allen v. Bottomley). The jury awarded what is believed to be one of the highest proportionate awards for general damages in Santa Clara County in recent years (over 8 times the special damages, which consisted only of medical bills since wage loss was not claimed).

The Trial Lawyer of the Year award is conferred annually by the SCCTLA to an attorney who has achieved legal justice against the odds. Allard also won the award in 2007.

About Corsiglia, McMahon & Allard

Robert Allard and Timothy McMahon, named as Super Lawyers, join partner Brad Corsiglia, honored by Best Lawyers in America, and associate Mark Sigala, President, Santa Clara County Trial Lawyers Association, to position Corsiglia, McMahon & Allard as the top personal injury law firm in Silicon Valley that is devoted to the aggressive litigation of claims by those who have been seriously injured or killed due to another’s carelessness.
