" I am a courtroom lawyer, never more comfortable than when I am on my feet in front of a judge and jury, arguing a case on behalf of my client. Over the course of my career I have handled hundreds of cases, including many complex matters, involving claims based on medical malpractice, toxic tort, personal injury, wrongful termination and various commercial disputes. I have also litigated civil rights claims under Title 1983, including police misconduct, in addition to handling education-related claims brought as administrative law matters. Being a good courtroom lawyer, as I see it, entails two essential skills. First, you have to bring real passion to every case and be willing to take on each client’s cause as your own. And second, no matter how complicated the facts and legal issues of any given case may be, you have to be able to distill the facts and law down into a coherent story — one that’s easy for a judge and jury to grasp. This is the way I strive to approach every case that I handle. "
