I have had the privilege to try to verdict a wide variety of cases, involving: libel, fraud, corporate employment, sexual discrimination, legal malpractice -- corporate dispute, legal malpractice -- trust/will situation, legal malpractice --defamation, product liability -- property damage, product liability -- personal injury, admiralty -- personal injury, real property -- boundary determination (bench trial), veterinary malpractice, construction defect and miscellaneous others.
My career began with Luce, Forward, Hamilton & Scripps for three years. I then spent seven years with what was essentially a small spin-off firm of young lawyer defectors from large firms. I next spent three years with a plaintiff’s boutique firm, after which I traveled the world for two years. I opened and managed an in-house trial office for a national insurance company for five years. In 1997, I joined my current firm where I have been for 17 years.
