I am an attorney concentrating in medical malpractice for plaintiffs (representing people who have been injured by the negligence of a healthcare professional or hospital).  Having worked in healthcare for 30 years, and maintaining my license as a physician assistant in the State of New York, I am able to apply my extensive medical background to my practice, not only in medical negligence, but also in the personal injury and workers' compensation cases that I handle.  I believe in educating clients as to the process that they can expect to experience.  I also speak Spanish.

 

También hablo español.  No duden en llamarme si tienen preguntas legales sobre negligencia médica, lesiónes personales, y compensación laboral (workers' compensation).
