Oxman Goodstadt Kuritz, PC is proud to have won top verdicts for it's clients, but often times the ideal result for the client is to reach a settlement that provides the necessary compensation for the injury that was suffered, without the stress and uncertainty that comes with a trial. For this reason, the attorneys at OGK are equally proud when they can negotiate a beneficial settlement on behalf of their clients. Because a typical condition of these settlement agreements is confidentiality, we unfortunately cannot share our numerous top settlements with you.
