He has a track record of victory in and out of trial, trying multiple cases to multimillion-dollar verdicts and recovering millions of dollars on behalf of his clients.  His ability to relate to jurors, trial innovation, and preparedness are hallmarks of his success just as much as his reputation for compassion and understanding for individuals and families tragically affected by the wrongdoing of others.
