About Me

My thirty plus years as a Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice attorney has been dedicated to getting the best results possible for each and every client.   I try to take the time to get to know my clients and what they would like to achieve by bringing a claim.  The most rewarding part of my practice has always been taking on difficult cases that other attorneys have rejected or feel that the client should accept a minimal settlement because the attorney does not have the fortitude to do what is necessary to give the client the best chance of a fair outcome.  Many cases can be resolved without going to trial, but there are times that cases have to be tried, and the good fight fought.  My client's always know that I have had their best interests at heart and gave their cause everything that I had to give.  There is a bond that forms when you get to know someone well through the process that endures long after the case ends.  The knowledge that I have helped someone through a critical time in their life is my biggest reward.
