Law Firm Overview

Before I started my own law firm representing victims of sexual harassment, defamation, wrongful termination, head injuries and injury accidents of all types, I actually worked as an attorney for the other side.

I was the senior partner in a large litigation defense law firm, representing employers and insurance companies who had been sued. Then, in the late 70's, as a favor I took on the case of an acquaintance who had been fired from his job. I tried his case and a jury awarded him...

Before I started my own law firm representing victims of sexual harassment, defamation, wrongful termination, head injuries and injury accidents of all types, I actually worked as an attorney for the other side.

I was the senior partner in a large litigation defense law firm, representing employers and insurance companies who had been sued. Then, in the late 70's, as a favor I took on the case of an acquaintance who had been fired from his job. I tried his case and a jury awarded him more than $1 million. That became a landmark case in California. Pretty soon, more people began contacting me for help, both in the area of employment law as well as serious personal injury.

I gradually found it impossible to continue to represent insurance companies and employers. It simply was not compatible to defend insurance companies and employers while trying to help the many people who came to me for help. I was the senior partner of a large insurance company defense firm and here I was suing insurance companies! I found I had to leave the firm and start my own practice, which I did in 1997.

Helping People Navigate Through the Legal System

I find more satisfaction in helping individuals. I feel that I am really doing somebody some good, especially in a sexual harassment, wrongful termination, or serious injury cases. Those are the types of cases that can be devastating to someone's life. I get a great deal of satisfaction in helping people navigate through the legal system and receive compensation.

My litigation defense experience helps me obtain good results for my clients. I definitely know the inner workings of insurance companies. I know how they think and what influences them. I also know what motivates them to pay adequate compensation. Having an experienced and aggressive advocate on your side is everything in an employment law or personal injury case.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
