For more than a decade, Florida’s Engle progeny tobacco litigation has featured some of the top lawyers in the country.
The cases are among thousands that stem from a Florida class action suit that the state’s supreme court ultimately decertified, allowing individual plaintiffs to recover against the nation's tobacco companies if they can prove the smokers in their cases suffered from nicotine addiction that caused a smoking-related disease.
The ongoing nature of the litigation has finely honed the courtroom skills of its attorneys, with CVN’s unrivaled Engle coverage capturing veritable master classes of trial work. It’s one reason why we honor the best Engle attorneys each year.
And this year’s Engle Defense Attorney honoree went undefeated in a pair of high-stakes cases.
