I dedicate 100% of my time to litigation, particularly in the areas of toxic torts and mesothelioma. I hope that you take a moment to learn a bit more about me.
My life long desire to help those who cannot help themselves led me to law school and eventually to helping those seeking justice for exposure to toxic products like asbestos. I have been involved in trying many cases to verdict and have received several multi-million dollar awards. Most notably, in 1999, I received the largest asbestos award and 50th largest jury verdict in the country when a jury returned a multimillion-dollar award to a former U.S. Navy machinist mate as a result of being exposed to asbestos while working on equipment that the manufacturers knew or should have known, was unreasonably dangerous. It is my goal to make a difference in people’s lives through the court system by providing strong, vigorous and ethical representation, whether your case is tried to verdict or settled beforehand.
