About Me

I have successfully completed hundreds of medical negligence cases on behalf of injured victims, and was the plaintiff attorney involved in the largest reported medical malpractice case settlement in the state of Michigan for the year 2002. I have been selected by my peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® (from 2008 to 2015) in the specialty of Personal Injury Litigation.
