Don't Settle For Less.
I am a trial lawyer in Boston, Massachusetts, where I concentrate my practice in personal injury, insurance company bad faith, construction accidents, car accidents, and professional liability litigation, for plaintiffs and defendants. I also represent businesses in litigation and contract negotiations, insurance professionals in malpractice cases, and assist individuals and businesses with employment disputes.
My goal is to provide the best service I can to my clients, and to work closely with them to win their cases. I was told as a junior lawyer that one of the most important things you should do is return your client’s telephone calls immediately. It’s a lesson I have never forgotten. You case is not only incredibly important to you – it’s important to me and I will treat you with the respect and focus you deserve.
I have obtained over $1,000,000 in settlements for my personal injury clients. In the fall of 2016, I secured a $275,000 settlement for a client who suffered a broken wrist when she caught her foot in the crack of a parking lot and fell. The client did not have to be deposed and the case never went to suit—but the insurance company for the owner of the parking lot agreed to pay for all my client’s medical bills and my client agree to settle without having to wait years for a trial.
In 2015, I obtained a $250,000 settlement for a crane operator that suffered a major knee injury while working on a Boston construction jobsite.
In 2014, I obtained a $330,000 settlement for a client who suffered a fractured spine as a guest of a major international hotel when the hotel’s shuttle bus ran her over as she was walking across the hotel parking lot.
I understand how corporations and their insurance companies evaluate and defend catastrophic personal injury cases because of my experience in the insurance industry and I use that experience to get results for my personal injury clients.
I have received a number of recognitions and awards for my work, including a Preeminent AV Rating from Martindale Hubble. I was named to the Massachusetts Super Lawyers list of Rising Stars from 2013 – 2015 by the publishers of Boston Magazine. I have a perfect "10" rating from Avvo. In 2015, I graduated from the International Association of Defense Lawyers Trial Academy at Stanford Law School and I am a member of the International Association of Defense Lawyers, the Massachusetts Bar Association, and the Defense Research Institute.
