I was appointed by the court as class counsel in a Class Action to represent thousands of plaintiffs who were shorted proper wages. The company compelled the employees to work over forty hours a week, but anything in excess of 40 was "off the books." We procured multi-million dollar settlement for the class on the brink of a trial.

Class Actions and Mass Torts provide a potent mechanism to vindicate the collective rights of the masses. Logically, it enables me to help more people through the course of the litigation.
The law is a complex, evolving organism that contains powerful tools for those who harness it properly, and inescapable pitfalls for those who miss the mark. The choice of counsel is critical, and articulate counsel will help educate the client on the legal process and the applicable law to enable and empower the client to make the right decisions about the case.
I will review any and all documents given to me by my client during the litigation process. It is important to properly designate the documents so the attorney-client privilege attaches if it's intended to be a confidential communication.
Absolutely not. While I wish everyone the best in the legal process, we cannot assist pro se litigants.
I am a Former Special Agent and Legal Adviser to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
My diversified background amplifies my ability as a lawyer. I have had the fortune to win tournaments in chess and tennis, which early on taught me that strategy is integral in success. My work in the FBI helps me keep things in perspective, and you will find that I am tactical, methodical and cool under pressure, which facilitates my serving as the architect of complex litigation.
I am a methodical, tactical, articulate, well-prepared litigator.Personal interests:
I enjoy law, tennis, chess, music (playing keyboard in a band), working out, and running.

Don't hide the ball. In most jurisdictions an attorney-client privilege exists during the intake process to protect and promote a candid discussion. One of the first things you should do is explain is what type of attorney you are looking for and how you envision the payment structure.
