• Recently settled wrongful death case on behalf of heirs of retiree passenger of tour bus, who was fatally injured on bus trip (confidential terms).
• Tried $6.2 million breach of contract case on behalf of entrepreneur/engineer against corporation in which client achieved full recovery.
• Have had many other favorable verdicts and settlements in very difficult cases.

Yes; generally for the first meeting, regardless of length.
We do not have fixed price services. Each client's problem is unique and not appropriate for a "one size fits all" approach.
Generally $300 per hour.

I enjoy the challenge of being a trial lawyer. It is of course not combat, but it is competitive and this is what drives me to succeed.
I always encourage this, if the client is interested in doing so, but I do not force it. Knowing the law is my job.
I will always review them if requested to do so. I will insist on it if they are crucial to our case.
I generally do not do this. Representing clients is my job.
Before starting my own firm, I worked as an associate and later as a partner in three successive Los Angeles-based civil litigation firms. The mix of cases was generally similar to what I handle now.
My degree in mechanical engineering and my work thereafter in the manufacturing industry, along with my competitive nature as a scholarship football athlete in college and a club lacrosse player for 13 years after that, have contributed to my skills and track record as a trial lawyer. As a once practicing engineer I can usually evaluate and explain how accidents happen and how products malfunction. I believe also that the competitive drive I developed and as an athlete help me as well.
My strengths are in explaining my client's case in simple and believable terms, and in persuading juries that I am presenting an honest picture of my client's case without omissions or exaggeration.Personal interests:
Working out, running, some spectator sports, reading, and auto racing events (I raced previously owned sports cars for many years at the club level, but have retired from that). I enjoy my time off, but my energy and principal focus remain directed to my law practice.
