I didn’t start out in life planning to sue anyone. Chances are, neither did you. Call 716-300-1885!
I have been an Attorney for 33 years. Nothing angers me more than seeing injustice in our court system caused by Attorney's who are incompetant or simply do not care. I care about my community, my reputation and most importantly , my clients. I represent my clients in a manner that I would like a member of my family to be represented.
If you or a loved one are injured in an accident, please call me. I am one of the few personal injury attorney's who have completed training in accident investigation at the New York Police Academy. My experience, as a former New York State Trooper, has helped me obtain fantastic results for my clients who have been involved in accidents.
A significant portion of my practice involves representing people accused of crimes. I understand that many times people are falsely accused of wrong doing. I also understand that sometimes good people make mistakes and deserve a second chance. I do not accept every criminal case that comes into my office. I am willing to help those who are falsely accused, as well as those who have made a mistake and are looking for help and opportunity to improve their lives.
