When you are hurt or injured and need someone to tell you the truth, not just what you want to hear.
I have spent my legal career concentrating in Personal Injury, Workers' Compensation, Medical Malpractice and Social Security Disability. I am dedicated to helping those who have been injured and require legal help.
I was formerly associated with a prestigious New York City law firm, where I worked directly with many of the top trial attorneys in New York as rated by New York Magazine.
I was lead attorney in a complex case involving a commercial diver who sustained severe brain damage.I secured a settlement of $15,000,000.00 for the diver and his family. Details of this case can be found in our reported cases section.
Through the years I have developed a diverse clientele, which includes police officers, judges, firefighters, teachers, plumbers, construction workers, and postal workers. I represent many of these clients throughout New York State in Orange County, Rockland County, Westchester County, and the five boroughs.
I am passionate about what I do. I come from a familiy of attorneys. My father was a Judge, so I know the inner workings of the Court system and use that to my client's advantage.
I do not have the ability to heal, but I do have the ability to help you through the legal process in a way to maximize the monetary recovery you may be entitled to receive.
