|Description||I am a lifelong student of the dynamics of group decision-making engaged in by every jury. The side which better comprehends these dynamics generally obtains a just result for their client, regardless of the extent of the devastating injuries suffered. Senior Partner Sean F.X. Dugan’s proficiency in the law and persuasive oratory skills are exemplary, but it’s his keen understanding of the psychological dynamics of the jury decision-making process that makes him an extraordinarily effective defense attorney. Many of Sean’s most difficult cases involve catastrophic injuries and bereaved family members, and he is particularly adept at presenting a defense that carefully navigates this emotionally fraught terrain while keeping the jury focused on the larger picture. This talent is exemplified by a favorable verdict he recently obtained from a jury in a complex and sensitive case-the same jury that had displayed tears of compassion for the plaintiff during the trial. Sean’s 42+ years of civil trial experience include: Representing individual physicians, large and small medical and physician groups, and various health care professionals and institutions in all aspects of medical malpractice, professional liability, and product liability claims. Defending, on behalf of a publicly traded provider corporation, all dialysis cases filed against it in New York State. Defending clients in complicated exposure claims involving mold, asbestos, lead, silicone, Hepatitis C, and various medications. Mediating complex matters pending in the United States District Court, Southern District of New York.Sean has attained more recognition than is possible to list here. Notably, he is a member and past President of the N.Y.C. Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates, and a member of the Association for Healthcare Risk Management of New York. He is certified as a Civil Trial Advocate by the National Board of Trial Advocacy and as a Charter fellow by the Litigation Counsel of America. He is listed in Marquis Who’s Who in American Law and is rated AV Preeminent by Martindale-Hubbell , their highest rating. Sean has been selected to The Best Lawyers in America since 2019 for Medical Malpractice Law – Defendants, and received a Lifetime Achievement award from America’s Top 100 Attorneys.Sean has published in several peer reviewed medical and scientific journals, including New York State Journal of Medicine, and For the Defense .
