When you need a lawyer, you have the right to expect a legal professional who maintains the highest standards of integrity, and is focused on obtaining the best possible outcome. When I opened my law firm in Toms River, New Jersey, in 1991, I was driven by my commitment that every client would be confident of receiving the highest level of legal knowledge and skill, backed by responsive, understanding and compassionate client service.
Since resigning my partnership in Ocean County's largest and most respected law firm after 11 years in 1991, I have remained in the practice of law for more than 22 years. I believe it is the only way to assure my clients that I am dedicated to working directly with them on every case. When you call, I will respond as quickly as possible. When we meet during your initial free consultation, you will know immediately that I am committed to working only with clients I believe I can truly help.
In order to be the most effective lawyer, I limit my practice to the following areas of the law:
I will help you pursue the maximum compensation to which the law says you are entitled for injuries or the loss of a loved one caused by another party's negligence. I have many years of insurance defense experience. I understand the strategies insurance companies use to protect themselves from liability and damages, and I know how to combat those strategies.
On account of my skill and experience, I have been designated a Certified Civil Trial Attorney by the New Jersey Supreme Court for over 15 Years
During the first 20+ years of my legal career, I was often retained by large insurance companies such as Allstate, Farmer's Mutual, Liberty Mutual and Clarendon National to provide aggressive litigation defense against injured parties (plaintiffs) suing for damages. Today, I focus my personal injury litigation experience solely in the area of work on behalf of injured plaintiffs. I apply that experience to find creative solutions and strategies to help my clients recover the maximum money damages the law entitles them for their personal injury case.
A serious personal injury often has lasting physical and emotional consequences. I know how insurance defense lawyers prepare their cases. I also know what strategies are most effective to help you overcome the roadblocks that insurance companies erect to protect themselves from paying fair compensation. I am thoroughly conversant with all aspects of personal injury law as well as the medical issues, which arise in each and every case.
I am ready to help you recover compensation for personal injury and wrongful death resulting from:
• Car Accidents, Truck and Motorcycle Accident Injuries
• Slip-and-Fall Accidents, Premises Liability
• Dog Bites and Animal Attacks
• Workplace Accidents - New Jersey Workers' Compensation
I back my experience and knowledge with the fact that I tried approximately 100 cases, and been involved in approximately 60 appeals. Of those appellate cases, 13 decisions have been published as legal precedent. As my law practice has earned recognition among satisfied clients and legal professionals, I have taken an active role being part of a growing, thriving Toms River community that I am proud to call home.
If you were injured on the job in New Jersey, you may be entitled to receive benefits under the state's workers' compensation insurance system. When you're injured at work by anyone, for any reason, even if it's your own fault, you have the right to compensation for the time you lose from work, for your medical care, and for ongoing disability when applicable. I can help you file a successful initial claim, re-open a claim, or appeal a claim that has been denied by the workers' compensation court.
Aggressive, effective criminal defense representation for people charged with indictable crimes and disorderly persons offenses, including DWI and related traffic offenses, drug crimes and juvenile offenses.
General, Contract and Business Litigation:
Knowledgeable and experienced litigation services for individuals and companies involved in general disputes and contract litigation matters.
Devising strategies that meet the needs of the client and minimize exposure to death taxes.
I am dedicated to building long-term relationships with my clients and achieving the best result that can be obtained in their particular matter. I believe the keystone to such relationships is dedicated, quality service, providing my clients the benefit of more than 35 years experience and sound advice regarding an individual client's legal options.
