For over 10 years, Mr. Malone was part of a team defending the manufacturer of a common household product, from an onslaught of meritless products liability litigation, successfully bringing each case to resolution by securing a dismissal for the client. Mr. Malone has been involved in aggressively defending, and obtaining defense verdicts for veterinary hospitals, movie theaters, supermarkets, and many other retail establishments. Mr. Malone has also achieved outstanding results in admitted liability personal injury and premises liability cases in which injury causation is often the client’s only viable defense.
