About me

I handle a variety of personal injury, wrongful death, birth injury and medical malpractice cases, and take pride in my work assisting individuals and families. My clients' interests come first, and I am always honest with them, whether its good news or bad news. In my career, I have also handled cases from the defense side, so I am sensitive to the dynamics of both sides of a case. Since these cases involve personal information and difficult tragedy, I know my clients must trust me and that trust has to be earned and respected.  The emotional, legal, medical, insurance and economic issues are often confusing and overwhelming, and my job is to make their life easier, and give them comfort in addition to expert representation. With me and my firm, not only will the case be professionally handled, but my clients can lean on me--I am fortunate to have seasoned and compassionate paralegals and assistants who make a great team for our clients, and we are always accessible.  Moreover, my firm has 100 attorneys in virtually every field, and we can handle wills and estates, family law, business and corporate, real estate and any other issue important to our clients.  Yet, despite our size, the client always gets personal attention from me and my team.  We don't handle volume so each and every client is important and on our radar screen at all times.  While I am proud of the results obtained for my clients, I am more proud of the way they were obtained, with my clients' satisfaction being first and foremost.
