Another Trial Success for FSS and its Client

On Friday, Flesher Schaff & Schroeder, Inc. won another great victory for a client, this time after a month-long jury trial in San Joaquin County Superior Court. In this damages-only phase defended by firm shareholders Jacob Flesher and Jason Schaff, the plaintiff asked the jury to award in excess of $10 million to compensate him for seven surgeries he claimed were caused by a fall at work in 2004. After 13 years of litigation, the jury rejected the bulk of the plaintiff's claims--awarding a net verdict of just $173,000—and denying all claims for future wage loss, pain, and suffering. It’s the firm’s second trial and second trial victory of the year. Congrats to Jake and Jason!
