In an example of 'fighting the good fight' Marc Rosenberg has obtained a 'One Half Million ($500,000.00) Dollar' verdict on a slip and fall case which most (NON PAAJ) attorneys would not have even touched.

How effectively can you explain UM/UIM coverage to a client who doesn’t know much about insurance? In layman’s terms, UM/UIM coverage is insurance that pays for the client’s injuries from an accident caused by the owner or operator of an uninsured or underinsured vehicle.
