Since 1974, I have been self-employed, focusing on getting my clients a fair fight in the legal arena. For the last 25 years, I have dedicated my practice to working for injured victims in their fight against big industries, insurance companies, and special interest groups. As corporate America has gained more control in the courtroom, I believe that now more than ever ordinary citizens need someone who will stand with them and fight back.
We provide the highest standard in legal services through teamwork and by using the latest in legal technology and resources. In helping our clients and their families, we also hope to prevent future accidents and injuries by holding those who are responsible accountable for their negligence.
Wrongful Death in Trucking Collision
I represented the family of a young father who was killed in a tractor-trailer collision on his way to the first day of his new job; ironically with a trucking company. The trucking company had a history of code violations and their driver's record wasn't good. I resolved the matter for the family with a million dollar settlement and made sure that the decedent's daughter has money set aside to take care of her through college.
Following a rear-end collision, my client suffered from inability to concentrate and memory loss. The insurance company fought hard to get us to back down. However, they couldn't deny a mild traumatic brain injury diagnosis. My client received the full policy limit.

I provide free initial consultation on matters that are handled on a contingency fee basis. On matters that are handled on an hourly basis, I charge for the initial consultation to obtain the information necessary to prepare the documents for the client.
Most matters are handled on a contingency basis. Occasionally, I am able to provide a fixed-price service in drafting a simple document for the client that does not require the approval of a third party.
When a matter requires a service to be performed on an hourly basis, the hourly rate is determined on a case by case basis; usually within the range of $200 to $300.

I began my legal career doing tax, corporate, and estate planning law, which places an emphasis on the drafting of documents rather than extensive communication with people. Over the years, I moved more into the area of trial law and realized that I enjoyed dealing more with people than paper. Simply put, I like to right wrongs.
I welcome clients who have an interest in educating themselves on legal issues and who are willing to share their findings. It has been my experience that a client educated on legal issues is better able to assist in presenting his or her case to the jury.
Yes, as long as it involves an issue in an area where I feel confident in my abilities.
Yes, for years I have given instructions to persons who call my office as to how they might represent themselves in the small claims court and have encouraged them to file their complaints and proceed with self representation.
My clients can trust in over 35 years of experience including a background as a CPA and time spent working in corporate tax law at a large, internationally recognized law firm. As a result, I know how the large defense firms work.
Practicing law is a service profession and requires a desire to help other people. I have always enjoyed meeting new people, learning about their legal situations, and, with their help, determining a way to solve their problems. Years of work experience have helped me to become a good listener who hears clients' concerns and can help them achieve resolution to their problems.
My strengths lie in my loyalty to my clients and in my sincere desire to solve their problems and achieve a good result for them. While I cannot guarantee my clients a result, I can guarantee a strong effort to achieve a good result.
I have a very informal style of trying a lawsuit. It has been my experience that a jury relates better to an attorney who is honest, sincere, and courteous; rather than one who is harsh and abrasive. However, when the circumstances require force, I am quite capable of dealing with a witness or an attorney who wishes to create an issue.
I have an AV professional rating from the legal directory, Martindale-Hubbell. I am also board certified in personal injury trial law. I also hold a CPA designation which I obtained while attending law school and working part time.
