Giving Voice and Seeking Justice

As the son of a physician who specializes in cancer treatment, Arthur understands what clients and their families are going through and learned at a young age the importance of assisting those in need. “I make sure my clients’ voices are heard and their stories are told,” he said. “I work hard to give our clients the peace of mind that their family will be taken care of.”

Arthur’s own grandparents benefited from plaintiff lawyers who achieved justice for them after a tragic event, and he strives to provide the same level of compassion, empathy, and understanding those lawyers granted his family. “I treat each of my clients like they were my grandparents,” he said.

He has also represented men and women exposed to asbestos from cosmetic talc products.

“Typically our clients were injured as a result of the failure of corporations to adequately inform them about the dangers of their products,” he said. “The injuries never had to happen. I hold corporations accountable for their actions.”
