Shari L. Milewski - Maron Marvel

Shari Lumb Milewski litigates cases in the areas of product liability, general liability, national risk management, and commercial litigation.

She has successfully defended claims against product manufacturers, automobile and truck manufacturers, and retail and other premises owners and operators, including incidents at stores, job sites, platforms and refineries, for over 14 years on a local, regional and national scale, assuring a consistent defense litigation strategy is executed and the best possible result is achieved. The claims she defends or has defended include product liability, general liability, personal injury and property damage, ranging from catastrophic wrongful death cases to minor incidents and injuries, and asbestos and toxic tort litigation involving premises claims and a wide array of products, including benzene and industrial products. In conjunction with that representation, she counsels clients regularly regarding insurance contracts, insurance allocation and contractual indemnification issues. She has been successful in pursuing reimbursement of defense and indemnity from insurance companies in liquidation for latent exposure claims. She also litigates commercial matters, including breach of contract disputes and has represented construction companies and property owners in Delaware courts. Historically, Shari has practiced in the areas of mass toxic tort litigation on the national and local level, and defended clients in actions under the federal CERCLA brought by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

In February 2023, Shari and her trial team secured a defense verdict for an automobile manufacturer client in the Delaware Superior Court in Sussex County in a significant burn injury death case with a second plaintiff who had serious burns and was disabled as a result of the accident.
