I have been a highly successful trial lawyer for 30 years, with extensive experience in many different areas. My primary focus, however, is civil and business litigation.
I have represented hundreds of businesses and individuals in matters ranging from simple contract or business disputes, to matters as complex as patent and antritrust litigation, and everything in between.
No case is too small or simple, or too large or complex. If I choose to take a case, I will give that case my utmost attention and interest regardless of its size or complexity.
TOUGH, BUT FAIR
I am a tough, battle-hardened trial lawyer who has passion for the practice of law.
I am fierecly competitive, and have a have frequently been described by both clients and adversaries as a " "bulldog'.
While I fight hard to win cases, I also consider myself to have good common sense and a modicum of fairness. These skills help me quickly size up a case, and know when to fight, and when to settle.
It is at least as satisfying for me to settle a case fairly, and without large fees, as it is to win after a long and difficult trial. Thus, I will try hard to settle a case, but only on terms I belive are fair to my clients.
WHY I AM SELECTIVE ABOUT THE CASES I TAKE
Clients frequently ask why I don't work for a firm, or hire a bunch of associates, and run a law mill that cranks out the cases and billable hours.
After being an associate at a huge law firm, and a partner in a boutque Westside firm, I have come to realize I am better able to serve my clients by handling the cases myself.
In that manner, I can control both the quality of the work, as well as the billable hours.
