I have devoted my career to representing individuals who have been seriously injured and families who have lost a loved one as a consequence of negligence or defective product design. I have challenged the healthcare industry, the insurance industry, and some of the largest corporations in the world when they have broken with industry standards and committed wrongful conduct. In my view, the ability of the everyday person to successfully take on the country’s wealthiest companies and institutions is the highlight of our legal system – the door to the court house is open to all.
