I was recently named one of the Top 40 Litigators Under 40 by the American Society of Legal Advocates. I am also rated as Distinguished for my legal ability and the highest possible rating for legal ethics by Martindale Hubbell.
I joined the litigation group at KSSJ in April 2011 where I primarily practices in the areas of catastrophic personal injury, commercial, corporate, real estate and insurance defense litigation (including premises liability, products liability and motor vehicle accidents).
I began my career as an associate with a prominent local firm practicing in the areas of plaintiff's personal injury, mass tort litigation, commercial litigation and title insurance defense. I then went to work as Staff Counsel for one of the largest insurance carriers in the United States prior to joining KSSJ.
Licensed since 2007
I endorse Mr. Schnitzer as I am confident in his ability as an attorney, specifically his ability to secure the best possible outcomes for his clients. I have always been impressed by his knowledge in his field and look to Mr. Schnitzer to assist our family law client's with personal injury issues.
