Our practice concentrates primarily on serious personal injury cases, including auto accident, construction accidents, medical malpractice and slip and falls. We have over 25 years of trial experience in all of these areas. We also represent and have developed close ties with many unions throughout Western New York and the Southern Tier. In addition, because of my experience in the Erie County District Attorney's office and private practice, I have successfully prosecuted and defended hundreds of drunk driving, assaults, traffic violations and shoplifting cases.
Many personal injury cases also involve Workers' Compensation claims, and you can be assured that any portion of your Workers' Compensation claim will also be handled by a highly qualified attorney that I will chose to work with in conjunction with your case. I will oversee every aspect of your Workers' Compensation claim to ensure that it does not, in any way, jeopardize your case.
I have dedicated my entire career to fighting for the rights of the people that I have been privileged to represent, whether it was prosecuting crimes for the Erie County District Attorney or pursuing claims of people injured because of someone else's carelessness.
My service in the legal profession has always involved helping to even the playing field for those who need it most. I’ve battled nearly every multi-million dollar insurance company in the courtroom – and won. I will not let the insurance companies or their representatives "bully" you either. I certainly won’t settle your case unless we are satisfied you have received the most compensation for all of the losses you have suffered.
As my client, that is my promise to you and the reason I decided to become a lawyer -- to try, in my own unique way, to help people who can't help themselves. If you are looking for an experienced and battle-tested courtroom attorney, you have come to the right firm.
When I’m not helping my clients, I enjoy spending my spare time with my wife, Anne Marie, and our children, Griffin and Lillian, which includes playing as much golf as we can! ___________________________
