Excellence for the perspective of the defense attorney is best measured by minimized damages; securing for the client the best possible outcome in even the most complex or extreme cases. Carmel Cosgrave was honored as one of three recipients of the 2016 Cook County Jury Verdict Reporter Trial Excellence awards for consistently delivering exceptional results for her health care clients in matters with high jury verdict potential and maintaining significant trial excellence standards. When verdicts may exceed many millions of dollars, Carmel is regularly called upon to minimize her clients’ exposure.
On October 19, 2016 the Jury Verdict Reporter and Law Bulletin Publishing Company hosted their annual awards at the Chicago Cultural Center. The event, which was attended by more than 250 trial lawyers and judges, recognized significant achievements by lawyers for both the plaintiff and the defense.
