In addition to his extensive jury trial experience in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Staten Island & New Jersey, Billy also served for years as a firefighter, fire officer and fire academy instructor, gaining years of actual, frontline experience responding to fires, vehicle accidents and other emergencies, often involving catastrophic injuries and fatalities.
As a lawyer, Billy also once managed catastrophic excess casualty litigation while working for a major insurance carrier. During that time, Billy managed litigation for numerous Fortune 500 companies arising from product defects, transportation accidents, fires and explosions. Those cases invariably involved traumatic brain injuries, paralysis, burns and other devastating bodily injuries, as well as multiple casualties and fatalities. In that role, he directly personally negotiated thousands of settlements, many involving well-known catastrophic events, both nationwide and abroad. He also gained valuable experience and insight into the insurance coverage and claims processes involved in liability insurance claims & suits.
Billy now brings to the courtroom on behalf of our clients all that very same training, experience and expertise, as well as his dedication & devotion to helping others in their time of need, as he had as a firefighter. In both New York City & New Jersey, Billy has extensive litigation and actual trial experience, handling cases arising from many catastrophic fire, explosion, premises, construction site, motor vehicle, motorcycle, bicycle, trucking, railway and other transportation incidents. In his own words: "I like to think all my actual fire service experience brings a unique perspective to accident cases. Lots of lawyers know about fires, accidents and other emergencies, but few ever have been in the middle of one - much less having to deal with one."
