I started practice over 30 years ago with a big law firm defending medical neligence cases. I rose through the ranks to the point where I was vice chair of my large law firm. When a close family member experienced a devestating injury as a result of a medical error, I decided to "cross the street" and prosecute a medical malpractice claim. The experience was a good one. The recovery I achieved for my loved one was such that it will enable her to live independently for the rest of her life. This experience convinced me that I should leave the big law firm and set up a small "boutique" practice where I could concentrate on handling these kinds of claims. I took this step in 1995. In the years since 1995, I have been honored by the opportunity to help many individuals injured by medical mistakes.
