Knowing what’s happening, and what to expect.View Transcript
Ed would tell me what was going to happen that day. He always forewarned me.
In the beginning I told him just before the trial started, I was kind of worried about some of the things I might hear. He said you’re going to hear things you’re not even going to believe and I didn’t think too much of it. I let things that are unpleasant [made sound of something flying away], that’s how I am.
And then when I got into court, boy I’ll tell you there were a couple people that were on that stand that if I could’ve just stood up and walked over there and just slapped them, I would’ve done it. Because they lied, they all lied, and Ed proved it. There was a doctor, he had on the stand, that literally perjured himself.
Ed was so great the way he handled these people. So calm.Close Transcript
Research and Results
Research and really knowing the case is a huge part of getting results.View Transcript
He first explained that he would be interviewing many parties and there would be an investigation of course of our claims. And of course, there’s logs of when they take care of a disabled person like my sister and there were and they did extensive meetings, conversations with the parties involved and with us, the clients,
I filled out extensive paperwork for him to the best of my knowledge, regarding my sister, and how she was prior to going into these homes to show before and after effects. And he did have, I believe, extensive conversations with the parties involved.
The sad part is, my sister can never come home. She has to live in a hospital due to the care she was given. The good part is, she will be taken care of very well and all of her material needs can be met, if they ever arise.Close Transcript
It Could Take Years
It’s important to understand that a case may take years to be resolved.View Transcript
Everything, he didn’t keep anything hidden, he told us it could take years, to go through this process, and each time you have to go to make a deposition, or a meeting, it stirs up old painful memories and so he wanted to make that absolutely clear…and the judgment, whatever it is, through a mediation or actually going to trial, could have the potential of being in our favor.
We understood that, we relied on his expertise, his credentials, and success rate to establish the best case possible for us.Close Transcript
Good Days, Bad Days
Pursuing a case to its conclusion is not always easy.View Transcript
Ed and I had a talk at the beginning of the month, I went to his office, he told me, the one thing that you must remember, is that money does not bring happiness. And I tried to assure him that I am aware of that, I am aware of that.
And he said, there are going to be days when you’re really going to be in a deep depression. And he said, I want you to know that you can always call me. I’ll always be here for you.
Well, I think I saw him on a Tuesday, and that following Sunday, I fell apart because I had already been through – I knew what my mother had gone through, so I had accepted that somewhat, I thought. And then it was the trial, and what these bastards were going to have to pay.
That Sunday after I met with Ed, then it hit me, what my mom had to go through for me to get this money, and then it hit me all over again.
So then that Sunday I wouldn’t answer my phone, cried a lot. As soon as I just thought of her, the tears were just rolling down my face and I said, mom please forgive me I’m so sorry. And then Monday I just stayed in bed and then Tuesday I was ok.Close Transcript
The Littlest Details
Attention to the smallest details can make the difference.View Transcript
Call Ed. I mean he, detail, I’m not kidding you, the littlest thing, he picked up and brought it out and these people could not answer those questions. I mean questions I didn’t even think about. And I would sit there and I thought, oh my god how did he think of that stuff?
Oh absolutely, in fact I’ve done it to a couple of people when they’ve told me that. I said, you have a problem? I said, call Ed Dudensing, I said he is the best attorney, you will not be sorry.
And I mean that and I’m not sitting her saying it because you’re recording this, I will tell anybody that wants to listen. You want results, this is the guy, I’m not kidding. I am not kidding.Close Transcript
