When Eric Fong takes on a seemingly hopeless case of a quadriplegic victim whose life was shattered by a violent robber, he discovers a shocking conspiracy to protect a powerful corporation at the expense of justice and is determined to pursue justice despite the odds.

Join Gregg Goldfarb and guest Eric Fong, a seasoned attorney, as they explore the importance of trial experience for lawyers in this episode of Cut to the Chase.

Fong sheds light on the shocking fact that many attorneys lack trial expertise, despite the constitutional right to a jury trial. He recounts his $91 million verdict in the Will Tillsdale case, which exposed the duty of convenience stores to protect their customers from foreseeable harm.

The conversation also delves into the trend of large corporations filing for bankruptcy in mass tort cases, which infringes upon the right to a jury trial. Sadly, the Tillsdale verdict was recently overturned in the court of appeals, dealing a blow to securing this right.
