About Me

Recently obtained settlement of  $3.75 Million on behalf of a police detainee who sustained serioius self-inflicted injuries while in police custody.   That settlement represented the largest such payout made by the City in its history.


I am an attorney with over 20 years of experience in criminal and civil litigation. My focus has always been to obtain the best possible results for my clients in the areas  of personal injury, products and premises liability as well as criminal offenses ranging from DUI and drug offenses, to major felonies.
