EARLY IN HIS CAREER:

1. In his first years as a young attorney, he took on a major broadcasting network and their large law firm in a copyright infringement case involving hundreds of cable stations. His efforts resulted in substantial settlement on behalf of the artist/composer.

2. In his first criminal jury trial as a young attorney, which lasted for three days, he obtained an acquittal of his young client who was charged with Assault & Battery on a Police Officer. Although three officers testified as to his guilt, Attorney Visconti convinced the jury to believe the civilian witnesses.

3. In his first ERISA case in Federal District Court, Attorney Visconti went up against one of the larger law firms and obtained Summary Judgment for his client in a 20-page opinion by the presiding Federal Judge. He also negotiated an award of attorneys fees from the other side.

4. A young man was acquitted by a jury of attempted larceny of a motor vehicle and possession of burglary tools, despite evidence which a lower court judge described as "overwhelming".
