I have been involved in the representation of the injured since becoming a member of the Bar in 1975 after completing my undergraduate degree at Ohio State University and my law degree at the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida. After law school, I became a member of a large defense trial firm in Ft. Lauderdale where I successfully defended the City of Ft. Lauderdale in my first jury trial only six weeks after passing the Bar.
In 1981, I opened my own firm restricting my trial practice to the representation of individuals injured by the negligence of others. I have represented thousands of individuals in settlement negotiations and trials. I have successfully represented injured people in trials all over the United States. I have achieved verdicts in excess of one million dollars in the area of automobile accidents, wrongful death, product liability, trucking accidents, medical negligence, motorcycle accidents, and nursing home abuse.
I was elected to the American Board of Trial Advocacy, an elite organization of 6,400 trial attorneys, both Plaintiff and Defense, from across the United States who are advocates for the maintenance of the jury system. I have a reputation in the legal community and insurance industry as being an excellent, fair and ethical advocate on behalf of my clients. This is reflected by my rating in the peer review rating performed by Martindale-Hubbell where for over 30 years I have received the highest rating in legal skills and ethical conduct, the rating of AV.
I understand that not every case should go to trial but every case deserves and gets vigorous representation in our office. I am experienced in trying those cases which require a jury to properly compensate my clients.
