About me

 I have been a successful trail lawyer since 1986. Throughout my legal career, I have received jury verdicts in excess of $1,000,000 in cases involving both personal injury claims as well as construction defect claims regarding construction delays, contract breach, and real estate non-disclosure. I have been recognized as Preeminent in the area of civil litigation in the Martindale Hubbard Attorney Directory.  I am also a Master with the William Enright Inn of Court, an organization that works to promote excellence in professionalism, ethics and civility in the legal field.
