In 2015, when the New York Law Journal published its list of largest settlements in New York State, KDLM cases were number one, number four, and number 12 on the list. All three cases involved victims of medical malpractice. The first settled for $18,000,000, the second for $9,000,000. and the third for $5,400,000. No other firm had three settlements in the top dozen cases.
