Courtrooms Reopen; Smith Haughey Trial Mastery Reignites
On the heels of a recent jury defense verdict for a Smith Haughey client in Grand Rapids, this time a Smith Haughey Ann Arbor trial team secured unanimous defense verdicts for three ear, nose and throat doctors on April 22nd in a lawsuit involving a patient’s claims around post-surgical conditions.
