About Me

I have been involved in the representation of the injured since
becoming a member of the Florida Bar in 1975 after completing my
undergraduate degree at the Ohio State University and my law degree at
the University of Miami in Coral Gables. After law school I became a
member of a large defense trial firm in Ft. Lauderdale where I
successfully defended the City of Ft. Lauderdale in my first jury trial
only six weeks after passing the Bar. In 1981, I opened my own firm in
Fort Lauderdale, restricting my trial practice to the representation of
individuals injured by the negligence of others. I have represented
thousands of individuals in settlement negotiations and trials. I have
successfully represented injured people in trials all over the State of
Florida. I have achieved verdicts in excess of one million dollars in
the area of automobile accidents, wrongful death, products liability,
trucking accidents, medical negligence, motorcycle accidents and
nursing home abuse. I am a member of the American Justice Association,
the Florida Justice Association, and the Federal, Florida and Broward
County Bar Associations. In addition, I was elected to the American
Board of Trial Advocacy, an elite organization of 6,400 trial
attorneys, both Plaintiff and Defense, from across the United States
who are advocates for the maintenance of the jury system. I have a
reputation in the legal community and insurance industry as being an
excellent, fair and ethical advocate on behalf of my clients. This is
reflected by my rating in the peer review rating performed by
Martindale-Hubbell where for over 20 years I have received the highest
rating in legal skills and ethical conduct, the rating of AV. I
understand that not every case should go to trial but every case
deserves and gets vigorous representation in my office. I am
experienced in trying those cases which require a jury to properly
compensate my clients. If you are looking for an experienced trial
attorney to represent your interests call or email me at 954-764-2909
