About Me

In over 35 years of practicing law, I am proud that my clients have been able to receive justice through the legal system when they have been injured by the negligence or misconduct of others  -- even when it meant taking on powerful corporations or insurance carriers. I have represented seriously injured victims of vehicular crashes, industrial accidents, medical malpractice and unsafe and dangerous conditions in stores and buildings. If you have a significant injury, I will work hard for you.
