In 2018, attorney Melissa Mosier represented the parents of Crystal Cross, whose daughter, son-in-law and only grandchild were all killed by an 18 wheeler barreling through a construction zone on Interstate 95. Before the trial began, Ms. Mosier prevailed in her efforts to keep the publicly-traded parent corporation for the trucking company in the case, and the trial judge pierced the corporate veil. The case resulted in a $17 million verdict for the family in the U.S. District Court’s Charleston Division.
