About me

Being a medical doctor and a lawyer, I am able to fully understand the medical aspects of a case and to maximize medical care damages. I believe this combined medical and legal background has been instrumental in my being able to attain record-setting medical malpractice verdicts and settlements for our clients. I am proud that we are able to assist people who have been injured by wrongdoers. Though nothing can make up for the injuries they suffered, the damages awarded can allow them to lead the most productive and independent lives possible.


My firm is deeply committed to helping the profoundly injured and disabled.  This committment does not stop at the courthouse steps.  It extends to our personal lives, where we have developed life-long relationships with many of our clients, and where we have become involved with a variety of organizations working to improve the lives of persons like our clients.  I invite you to visit our website to learn more about the organizations closest to our hearts that support disabled persons and the disadvantaged.
