After working with him for 4 years, I am honored to write this review of his impressive performance in and out of the courtroom. I have been inspired by his high level of professionalism. From the time I first met him, I always felt confident of his ability to represent me. Since I am in my eighties, I was pleased that he was patient, understanding, and compassionate working with me. He always made me feel that my input was valuable, both in and out of the courtroom. He entered the courtroom well-armed with his knowledge from years of research in the form of phone calls, live interviews, and online information. His fabulous opening statement captivated both the jury and the defense, leaving them on the edges of their chairs. To show the jury the exact measurements, he had life-size photos as well as props to demonstrate the relationship of the size of my tumors compared to the original size of my breasts. From his exceptional delivery, I knew he had the knowledge, the desire, and the integrity to win my case. I knew he had anticipated every possible argument the defense could present.
I was impressed by his creative resourcefulness, not only for gathering evidence but also for his ability to build hope in his clients. I felt he was totally committed to my case, regardless of the time and expense required. I never doubted that he had my best interests in every decision he made. Although he was 3 time zones away, he was always with me--through emails and phone calls--as if he was right next door. He flew here 7 times, never worrying about the cost or the personal inconvenience.
His mastery of multi-media equipment showed his superiority over the defense. After the trial, even they were impressed enough to ask him about the equipment he used. He kept the jurors' interest by breaking down all medical terms, so anyone could understand them. Even with his hands literally tied behind his back, he stayed focus to win the case. When he was not allowed to show the jury the pre-recorded depositions containing winning evidence, he demonstrated honesty and integrity by letting me voluntarily drop the case to prevent years of appeal, due to my age and health.
He deserves the highest possible rating because he is intelligent without being arrogant. He is knowledgeable and has great people skills. I was always proud to have him represent me. I'd definitely recommend him to anyone.
Most of all, I am grateful for all the time and expense he went through flying to many states to gather depositions from witnesses and medical experts. I believe he is the best attorney, not just in the United States, but in the world. Without reservation, I believe he should receive the highest rating because he definitely surpasses all the necessary requirements in every category.
