About Me

My practice focuses on commercial, product liability, and toxic tort litigation.  I have always enjoyed the trial practice because it provides me with the opportunity to present complex and technical information to a jury who are almost always trying to do the right thing.  Overcoming all of the technical arguments and issues and convincing a jury that the right thing to do is to render a verdict for my client is endlessly challenging and extremely satisfying.
