Representing Clients in Complex Litigation Matters

Verdicts and Settlements

Biller, Sachs, Robert & DeLaura has recovered multiple millions of dollars on behalf of our clients. The overwhelming majority of our client’s matters are resolved without the need for litigation. In large part this is due to our successful track record and our willingness to vigorously litigate our client’s claims to their conclusion when it is in our client’s best interest to do so.

In the first and very challenging personal injury case Attorney Biller tried, our client was given a ticket for making an improper left turn. With no money offered and over a $100,000 in medical bills Attorney Biller tried this case to a jury of six in New Haven Superior Court on behalf of our client who had suffered a traumatic brain injury. Not until Attorney Biller’s closing argument did the defendant finally agree to fairly and fully compensate our client. Since that time the firm has resolved many injury cases with excellent results and always to our client’s satisfaction.

In the area of insurance coverage litigation, the firm is known nationally for having established legal precedent favorable to policyholders. We are often referred matters from other attorneys, insurance agents, contractors, and public insurance adjusters. This is due to our firm’s reputation and knowledge in insurance law and our ability to obtain outstanding results.

If you have a significant insurance-related matter or have been the victim of a serious personal injury we can help you.
