About
My fields of expertise include product liability, claims management, and contracts. I have litigated hundreds of cases with very good results. I have also overseen ("Quarterbacked") hundreds of legal matters as Outside General Counsel with a very high rate of success resulting in significant cost savings to the companies I have been retained to help.

I have been involved in all aspects of civil and criminal litigation, including but not limited to personal injury claims, government tort liability, breach of contract, real estate/business disputes, professional liability, securities, misdemeanors and serious felonies.
