About Me

I have split my practice between tort litigation (personal injury and medical malpractice) and business litigation.  I also represent professionals in licensure matters (administrative law). I have been in practice for 32 years and have extensive experience in the above fields.  I also teach Torts and Medical Malpractice at UWLA School of Law, where I am an adjunct professor and Associate Dean of Academic Affairs.

Many of my clients have been using my services for over twenty (20) years and the boutique law firm at which I am a partner (Cron, Israels & Stark) enjoys an excellent reputation in the community.
