In a career spanning more than three decades, Jan Dodd has tried lawsuits throughout the country in both state and federal courts with an emphasis on litigation surrounding products causing catastrophic injury or death. In one significant defense verdict, she represented the maker of an over-the-counter cold medicine, In Re PPA. In two cases consolidated for a single trial, the plaintiffs asserted they had suffered devastating strokes and sought millions in compensatory and punitive damages. After nearly five months of trial, the jury found in favor of the drugmaker on all counts.

In one recent matter, a global diversified manufacturing company, asked Dodd to defend the company less than 90 days before trial in a case involving a personal injury. She took the lead and was able to convince the jury to return a full defense verdict for Dodd’s client.
