Judd Uhl is the managing partner in the Fort Wright office of Lewis Brisbois and a member of the Insurance Coverage Practice. Judd handles all types of insurance defense cases. He has first chair trial experience and has obtained successful verdicts in dozens of cases including wrongful death, product liability, premises liability, trucking, bad faith, nursing home litigation, and medical malpractice. He also has environmental experience which includes trial work in brownfield remediation, toxic tort, flood claims, dust exposure, coal mine rock slides, asbestos, air pollutant and fuel spills clean ups. However, his most memorable trial result was the one where his son was born during the cross examination of the Plaintiff. The Judge graciously allowed a brief recess so he could be there for the delivery.

In 2009, Judd was lead trial counsel for the target defendant in the longest civil trial in Cincinnati history – Patrick McCarthy vs. Sterling Chemicals, et al. The case involved a defective weld on the manway assembly of a railroad tanker car which Plaintiff alleged separated when the car was pressurized during the unloading process. The accident resulted in the Plaintiff being left in a persistent vegetative state. After a four month trial, the jury returned a defense verdict. (View publication)

Judd was recently invited to become a member of the Association of Defense Trial Attorneys (ADTA). ADTA invites only one defense trial attorney to be its prime member per one million in population for each city, town, or municipality across the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico.
