I have helped clients
recover more than
$42 Million Dollars



My clients have been compensated by the most well-defended insurers, governments, and corporations in the world.  If you've been catastrophically injured, or have lost someone due to another's carelessness, you need my experience.


Trial Tested

Your choice of counsel can significantly impact your claim's value. Your opponents know that I am competent to try a case and my multi-million dollar trial verdicts reflect tenacity.  


You get "Me"

I limit myself to  a few cases at a time so I can provide personal attention. My clients have my cell number and are never charged for my time. I use a team of qualified experts and staff. But, I still get my hands dirty so that I do not overlook critical evidence.


Recognized Expertise

The local and national media often rely on my expert commentary on  significant legal issues and frequently report on my claims verdicts.


Board Certified

I am one of only 43 attorneys in the United States to earn Board Certification in Aviation Law. Only Board Certified  attorneys may claim this expertise. 


Perfect Ratings

I hold the highest peer and client ratings an attorney can earn:

-  Rated 10/10 on Avvo;
-  Rated 5/5 on LexisNexis;
- "Preeminent on Martindale-Hubbell;

-  Named a Superlawyer since 2015.


No Fee unless you win!

If your case involves a claim for loss, injury or damages resulting from a catastrophic injury or death you pay NO costs or fees whatsoever, unless you recover.
