“I have spent my entire career litigating a broad array of claims for people who have suffered injury or injustice, including product liability actions, toxic tort matters, medical malpractice claims, bullying claims, wrongful death actions, personal injury matters, automobile negligence cases, worker’s compensation claims, employment, banking and commercial matters. My strong belief is that the law provides a crucial source of protection and economic recovery for ordinary people when something goes wrong through no fault of their own; it provides a way to enforce basic principles of fairness and equity, while also serving as a positive force for change in our community and in society at large. Many of the cases I handle are the result of serious personal injuries, often involving overlapping issues of medicine and law. I have a strong commitment to help victims of others’ negligence, whether children or adults, fight for justice and economic recovery.
In the last decade I have also handled significant matters involving children who have suffered physical and emotional injuries as a result of harassment, intimidation and bullying at school. In 2012, I resolved a bullying matter involving Sawyer Rosenstein against the Borough of Ramsey Board of Education for $4,200,000.00 which, at the time, was believed to be the largest resolution of a bullying claim involving a personal injury in United States history. I am very proud of the work our firm has done to develop novel uses of statutes and case law to extend protection to the most vulnerable members of our community.”
