Insurance representation/defense in the areas workers' compensation, litigation and tort cases, longshore cases, and premises/commercial liability matters. Employment law matters. Drafting/negotiating contracts; corporate and non-profit representation involving matters of governance, compliance (including HIPAA), and risk reduction; litigation of business, contract, tort/personal injury, insurance, probate, and property matters; estate planning for Medicaid, tax, and special needs cases.
