  • Prosecuted an action against an endovascular medical device and medical systems manufacturer involving fraud and negligence that resulted in a large confidential settlement for the client.
  • Assisted a high-level executive who became the target of paralyzing political pressure within a large public entity. Analyzed the highly complicated situation and identified potential litigation fallout beyond the individuals involved, which in just one month provoked a settlement that left both the executive and organization whole.
  • Lead trial attorney in a complex professional negligence and medical battery case involving numerous physicians and insurance carriers that resulted in a substantial confidential recovery for the plaintiff.

Diffused the toxic situation and worked with company lawyers to negotiate the executive’s graceful exit, severance package, and confidentiality agreement, avoiding a PR spectacle and potential whistleblower lawsuit for the company.
