About me

I am a trial lawyer who concentrates his practice in the area of genital injury litigation.  I have extensive experience in wrongful circumcision and botched circumcision cases.  Within the last two years I have obtained over 16 million dollars in judgments, verdicts, or settlements for victims of such torts.  I have appeared on a temporary (pro hac vice) basis in the courts of some 15 states and federal districts.  I associate regularly with lawyers across the country in genital injury cases.
