Attorney Jeffrey Heldman recently obtained a $300,000 judgment for a client following a four-day trial in Bergen County Superior Court. In a case that rested upon the credibility of the witnesses (including competing handwriting experts), Mr. Heldman successfully proved to the court that the disputed debt was due. Key to this result was Mr. Heldman’s cross-examination of both the defendant, and the defendant’s handwriting expert witness, which led to the court giving less weight to the testimony of the defendant and his expert. In a case where the believability of the witnesses was the critical factor, such a finding was essential to the success of the firm’s client. The case was tried in the before Judge Mary E. Thurber. Please be advised that every case is different and has a unique set of facts. Therefore, past results are not necessarily indicative of the outcome in any other matters.
