"For the past 35 years, I have been blessed and thrilled to represent more than 1,500 clients, who have suffered personal injuries, most against large national companies. This David and Goliath story is replayed over and over in my practice, I strongly believe that a committed attorney can bring an injured individual justice under our great American legal system."
