Rudolf B. Radna has served on our team as an associate attorney at The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C. since 2003. His responsibilities include preparing and responding to motions for summary judgment. A motion is a written request to a court. A summary judgment is a way of winning a case without a jury trial.
During his time at The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C., Mr. Radna successfully defeated several defense motions for summary judgment in conjunction with the efforts of other lawyers at the firm. He also served an integral role in obtaining summary judgment for the firms’ clients several times. Mr. Radna has also been involved with appeals and other types of motions, including defense motions following a jury trial seeking to retry the case unless the verdict was reduced.
Examples of prior cases where Mr. Radna has been fundamentally instrumental include:
Mr. Radna’s other responsibilities at the firm include conducting oral examinations prior to trial during depositions and representing clients at discovery conferences at the court, which is how the investigation of cases is achieved.
At one such conference, Mr. Radna noted that the deposition showed that the defendant driver denied being present at the accident and denied that his vehicle was involved. In response to this, Mr. Radna put a demand into the conference order asking for the name and address of a person who was living with the defendant at that time, as that person may have been the driver. Months later, when the defendant asked the court to dismiss the case based upon the defendant’s claim that he was not the driver, this demand in the order was useful in showing that the defendant had not provided adequate discovery, and that the case should therefore not be dismissed.
Another project Mr. Radna has been involved with at The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C. is developing a computer program that organizes summaries of court decisions, and permits the user to search for key words or phrases within those summaries.
