Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) April 7, 2010
Attorney John M. Dodig, partner of the Philadelphia personal injury law firm Feldman Shepherd Wohlgelernter Tanner Weinstock & Dodig, addressed the topic of Deposing Liability Witnesses at the Pennsylvania Association for Justice Advanced Deposition Strategies Seminar on March 24, 2010 in Philadelphia. Dodig spoke to fellow attorneys about depositions as they relate to police officers, eye witnesses, construction witnesses, super depositions and the use of depositions during opening statements.
Other presenters included Stewart J. Eisenberg, Esq., Laura A. Feldman, Esq., Matthew Casey, Esq., Bert Farris, and Timothy R. Lawn, Esq. The seminar offered participants four substantive CLE credits.

He has successfully obtained multiple seven and eight figure verdicts and settlements on behalf of his clients. In 2008, Dodig won a $31 million compensatory damage verdict in a Camden, N.J., dangerous roadway case, Anderson v. County of Camden, which was recognized as the highest verdict in the State of New Jersey and one of the top 100 verdicts in the U.S. that year. In October 2009, he received a $6 million compensatory damage verdict in Hunterdon County, N.J., the largest verdict ever recorded in the courthouse.
In the landmark decision of Jones v. City of Philadelphia, Dodig successfully argued before the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania that municipalities should be held responsible when police are negligent during a high speed police chase. Since then, he has successfully handled and been consulted in numerous high speed police chase cases across the country which have resulted in serious injuries and death. Dodig has also served as a media commentator to the Philadelphia Daily News, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia Magazine, The Legal Intelligencer, Pennsylvania Law Weekly, New Jersey Law Journal and other news outlets for comment, opinion and analysis in this area of the law.
