Defense Verdict Received In Suffolk County

On December 2, 2009, Anthony M. Heller obtained a defense verdict in a podiatry case on behalf of a Long Island podiatrist in the Suffolk County Supreme Court.

Plaintiff claimed that her foot had surgically deformed by procedures performed by the podiatrist and she was left with an inability to comfortably perform the activities of daily living.

The trial lasted two weeks and culminated in a unanimous verdict of no departures from acceptable standards of podiatric care.  The jury deliberated for only for forty-one minutes.
