October 7, 2014

After a five-week trial in Waterbury, Connecticut, a Superior Court jury rendered a unanimous verdict in favor of firm client Shalva Chigirinsky in a suit brought by his former wife, Tatiana Panchenkova, where she alleged a decade-long physical and emotionally abusive relationship.  The jury rejected all of Ms. Panchenkova's allegations finding Mr. Chigirinsky not liable and rendered a complete defendant's verdict on courts alleging intentional infliction of emotional distress and assault.
