I can't say that I always thought I'd be a lawyer, but I was certainly on the path to becoming one. I went to one of the top debate schools on a debate scholarship, so in hindsight, it seemed obvious that I would eventually be in a courtroom. But I saw a lot of my friends burn out at big law firms helping rich corporations get richer and realized that wasn't what I wanted to do. I wanted to kno... view profile

My practice focuses on personl injury. I have experience in handling many types of cases, including car accidents, bicycle accidents, dog attacks and premises liability. I have had over a 100 arbitrations and trials and have an extensive prior history working for a large insurance company as in-house defense counsel. I know how the insurance companies work and how they evaluate claims.
A personal injury lawyer works with clients who have suffered a physical or emotional injury, usually by accident or mistake. They cover cases such as car accidents, botched surgery, and harassment. Personal injury attorneys know how the insurance claim process works, they know what evidence to gather, and they know how to calculate and present a claim for damages. Many personal injury attorneys take cases on a contingency basis, which means they receive an agreed-upon percentage of the payment you receive, also called the personal injury settlement. If you don't recover any money, they don't get paid their fee. Personal injury lawyers also know how to defend you if someone thinks an injury is your fault.
