For over twenty-five years, initially as a physician and surgeon and subsequently as an attorney exclusively representing injury victims, I have worked to help individuals overcome the physical, emotional and financial devastation inflicted by serious injury. It is a privilege for me to represent seriously injured individuals and their families against insurance companies, corporations, drug companies, doctors, hospitals and individuals seeking to avoid the consequences of their negligence. No matter how extensive or advanced the medical treatment, an individual and his or her family is never physically or emotionally the same after trauma alters their lives.

In individually evaluating and preparing each case entrusted to me, I rely upon both my medical experience and legal skills. While a Board Certified physician and diplomate of the American Board of Surgery for over ten years, I dealt with the medical consequences of significant injury daily. As an attorney, I have been able to effectively demonstrate the true depth of injury in the courtroom.

For an attorney with experience, dedication and resources, the legal system provides an avenue of compensation for the totality of injury suffered. Settlements and jury awards must fairly include not only current status and financial need, but must consider long-term prognosis and ongoing financial burden.
