Review Michelle Schaffer

About Me

Practice concentrates on civil litigation, particularly the defense of automotive and other products liability, warranty liability, toxic tort and long term care matters. Recent jury trials have included the defense of a motor vehicle manufacturer against claims of a defective seat back and restraint system, a driver involved in a motor vehicle accident and the owner of a summer camp attended by a boy paralyzed in a diving accident.
