About me

There is no better feeling for a lawyer representing an injured client than that experienced when we are able to obtain full compensation for the pain and suffering that a client has experienced.

Having been a trial lawyer for over 40 years, experience has taught me many lessons.  Some of the most important are to be passionate about your case, be prepared to prosecute your client’s claim all the way to verdict and to be relentless in obtaining justice for your client.

My law career started as an Assistant District Attorney where I gained priceless trial experience.   In private practice as a sole practitioner for a number of years, I learned the importance of maximizing every recovery possible.   Due to my extensive trial experience I came to handle some of the most hard fought cases in the Civil Court arena, those being medical malpractice cases.

I have been accorded the highest possible peer review rating (AV) for both legal ability and ethical standards by the internationally recognized Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory which rates attorneys worldwide. In fact, in 2015 I celebrated my twentieith year anniversary of such a rating.

I have now joined Cellino & Barnes because they offered me the best opportunity to
continue what I do best – represent clients who are injured by the negligence of others, whether it be as a result of a motor vehicle accident, a  construction accident or medical malpractice.

For those clients that I have had the honor of representing in the past, I say thank you for putting your trust in me.  For those individuals who I might represent in the future, I promise you my best effort in our journey for justice.
