STATEMENT OF PRACTICE “Personal injury cases are like real-life jigsaw puzzles. You have to fit the pieces together to see the whole picture. Police reports, medical records, crime scene investigations, and eyewitness interviews are just one part of the puzzle. The client is the other. I concentrate my efforts on understanding even the most minute details of the case so that I can effectively evaluate the evidence of the claim. It is this attention to detail that gives my clients an edge in settlement negotiations and courtroom litigation.”
