Review Robert Sickels

About Me

I have been tremendously successful in handling complex personal injury matters, primarily in the areas of medical negligence and products liability.  I have developed particular expertise in cases involving injuries to baby and mother during birth, brain damage during medical precedures, death or catastrophic injury due to other forms of medical negligence, defective products and defective premises.  Due to superb pre-trial presentation, I have engineered numerous settlements and jury verdicts that have provided many millions of dollars in compensation for my clients.
