Ward Greenberg Heller & Reidy’s attorney Edward Greenberg’s rate from an insurance defense team perspective may be a bit higher, but the value he brings to the file as a true litigator and not an "insurance defense lawyer" more than makes up for the difference.

Both Tom Reidy and Scott Jennette at Ward Greenberg are fantastic lawyers in matters of personal injury litigation. They understand which cases warrant early resolution and which require more intensive litigation and proceed accordingly, providing sound advice to their clients and insurance companies, often concluding matters much earlier and much more favorably than ever expected. They have the legal expertise and broad experience to rely upon in the defense of any case we have in the area.

Commercial Litigation

Scott Jennette of Ward Greenberg is one of the best lawyers I've worked with on all matters of litigation. He combines exceptional expertise in both issues of law and trial strategy and style, so that you want him to be your motion practice lawyer and your trial lawyer. Beyond that, he always keeps the end in mind and considers the economics, turning to alternative dispute resolution strategies where appropriate. He has great vision in cases, which assures that nothing is overlooked, and forges an effective and efficient path from beginning to end. He is persuasive and articulate and uses these skills to resolve and conclude matters in a manner most beneficial to his clients. His expertise in products liability is only the tip of the iceberg. There is not a case he cannot navigate expertly. I've said it before, and I'll say it again, if I could clone Scott Jennette and use him on every case, I would!

Arbitration

Ward Greenberg Heller & Reidy is an excellent litigation boutique that specializes in medical malpractice representing hospitals and is also skilled in contract disputes. I mediated a case last year in which two of the attorneys from that firm represented an insured against a life insurer. The amount in controversy was substantial and the facts tended to favor the insurer. The WG attorneys were better prepared than the insurer's attorneys by a substantial degree, and as a result, the insurer paid a significant amount to settle. WG partner Harold Kurland is also a very effective mediator and a well-regarded trial lawyer.
