Ms. Ullman is a nationally recognized trial attorney and is a passionate and zealous advocate for her clients. She strongly believes that a successfully handled case is one that is tried or settled to its assessed value. Primary witnesses should be interviewed, as well as relevant documentary evidence obtained and analyzed, all during the first 60-90 days of the life of a case to determine a particular case’s settlement value and trial value. Those numbers should be the benchmark values throughout the litigation process. Ms. Ullman has also had the privilege of participating in cutting-edge jury science and research projects at the local, regional, and national levels, and she is able to utilize the knowledge gained to benefit her clients in all practice areas. Ms. Ullman believes it is critical to understand a client’s business philosophies and processes in order to properly formulate and strategize the most effective and persuasive defense.
