About me

   I am a Physician/Attorney/MBA. I practiced Internal Medicine for more than 25 years and earned an MBA before becoming an attorney. I concentrate my practice in health care business and contracting matters, and have successfully litigated various types of cases. I have been lead counsel in high profile cases, but continue to handle other health related matters ranging from Personal Injury to Worker's Compensation and Medical Malpractice.

   I have two sons; one is a resident in Orthopedic Surgery, and the other is pursuing his PhD in Clinical Psychology. I am divorced, and my interest vary widely from being an airacract pilot and boater to writing and sculpting.
