Episode #175 - Plaintiff Trucking Attorney Joe Fried - Part 2

Guest: Joe Fried, Founding Partner - Fried Goldberg

Bill Kanasky, Jr., Ph.D. continues his conversation on trucking litigation with plaintiff trucking attorney Joe Fried, Founding Partner of Fried Goldberg LLC. In this episode, Bill asks Joe about the behavior of some plaintiff attorneys who express disdain for the insurance company, who refuse to settle or negotiate, and take a very aggressive stance in dealing with the defense. They also discuss how defense witness ""pivoting"" kills credibility at deposition (and trial) and greatly helps the plaintiff's attorney make his/her case, and that while being on different sides of the table, plaintiff and defense attorneys are actually very similar in what they both wish to accomplish and how they want to make the world a better place.
