As Atticus Finch stated in the movie - To Kill a Mockingbird, Ã¢â‚¬Å“There is one way in this country in which all men are created equal - there is one human institution that make a pauper the equal of a Rockefeller, the stupid man the equal of an Einstein, and the ignorant man the equal of any college president. That institution, gentlemen, is the court.Ã¢â‚¬ï¿½

He has successfully settled and tried cases for catastrophic injury, work place accidents, products liabilities, trucking collisions, and injuries to children.
