You won’t see my name on a billboard, but you will see the results from experience gained through years of negotiating settlements and trying personal injury cases. I will achieve the best result for your case.
I started my career on the defense side. I was an attorney for private law firms retained by insurance companies to represent policyholders sued in automobile cases, slip and fall cases, and for medical malpractice. I worked with claims adjusters every day discussing and evaluating cases. With experience, I developed the ability to tell when to defend a case and when to settle. I learned the dollar values that various injuries might bring in an arbitration or trial, from a cervical strain and sprain to a herniated disc. I worked with experts on evaluating the economic costs of a disability or an individual’s death. I was very good at what I did. But after twelve years, I was not satisfied with the fact that all my career had accomplished thus far was saving insurance companies a pile of money.

Now I put all that expertise to work for you. I will explain to you every step of the process at your first consultation. Cases where the other party is clearly at fault can often be settled without a lawsuit. I will tell you what I think your chances of winning are if you have to go to trial. The higher they are, the more likely your case will settle. I will estimate for you within a fairly narrow range what I think your case is worth. I will also tell you how the insurance company is likely to evaluate it. I settle almost all of my personal injury cases because I know what a case is worth. I do my research, retain the right experts, and shine the best light on the client. If the claims adjuster does his or her homework, too, and both parties understand what the case is worth, the case settles because neither party wants to risk a worse result at trial.
Personal injury cases are not unlike plaintiff’s employment law cases. In both cases, the client is experiencing a great deal of pain and uncertainty. It is my goal to give you peace of mind during a difficult time. I understand what you are going through and I am here to help you – not just by litigating and settling your case – but by being responsive to your individual concerns.
Tractor-Trailer / Truck Accidents
Tractor-Trailer and commercial vehicle accident cases require a special expertise. I have litigated several of these cases and am familiar with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations and other codes particular to commercial vehicles. I know how to obtain the information necessary to establish the trucking company’s responsibility. I work with nationally recognized experts using state-of-the-art accident reconstruction techniques to recreate an accident visually in a way that is easy for a jury to understand.
