Attorney Profile

My practice involves professional liability defense for lawyers, accountants, healthcare providers and others; insurance coverage counseling and litigation for carriers; product liability defense for distributors, manufacturers and insurers; and general commercial litigation.  Especially in professional liability matters, my clients always return my phone calls.  I've been a litigating lawyer since 1972, and I'm fortunate in being able to say I'm not burned out yet.
