"....let me put my background and experience to work on your case."
I’ve secured millions of dollars in compensation for victims of the negligence of others. I've represented injured workers in multiple jurisdictions and obtained the benefits to which they were rightfully entitled, and wrongfully denied. I’ve defended hundreds of people accused of crimes and authored several published texts containing analysis and commentary on criminal procedure and our constitutional rights granted by the 4th, 5th, and 6th Amendments. I've presented hundreds of cases in court. Let me put my background and experience to work on your case.
Frequently Asked Questions:
WHY SHOULD I RETAIN YOU TO HANDLE MY CASE?
This is the type of question that makes a lot of lawyers uncomfortable. I’m not made uncomfortable by it. I offer three objective, verifiable reasons why I believe someone should choose me over another lawyer: My experience. My Reduced Fee Program. Your Access to Me.
I have more than 20 years of experience as a practicing attorney. But in my view, while that is a significant credential, it’s not just the number of years that are important.
I’m also licensed to practice law in multiple jurisdictions, and have handled thousands of cases in New York, Florida and Maryland. Being authorized to practice law in multiple states gives me the benefit of seeing how things are handled by different judges, courts, prosecutors and claims adjusters across multiple jurisdictions. I have less hair than I used to, and what is left is more grey than not. But I've earned those grey hairs in the trenches. I bring that seasoning to bear on your case.
I’ve spent the bulk of my career helping the people that have sustained serious injuries in getting the full financial recovery and compensation that they are entitled to under the law.
Reduced Fee Program:
I offer my Maryland personal injury clients a reduced fee program that features an attorney fee that is lower than that typically charged in the community. I’ve explained the details of the program elsewhere on the site.
I have always believed that every accident and injury victim should have access to the services of a dedicated advocate at a fair rate.
My reduced fee program gives my clients the ability to keep a greater percentage of their overall award in their pocket.
Every lawyer, every good one anyway, gives personal attention to their clients. But not every lawyer personally answers the phone when you call. It’s that second aspect that I’m talking about. I’m not going to pick up the phone if you call me at 3:00 am., but if you leave me a message, I’ll call you back at 7:00 am. If I’m in a trial, I can’t answer your call, but if you leave me a message, I’ll call you as soon a I get out of court. Other than that,
....if you call me, you are going to talk to me, not someone else, or someone that relays a message.
Over the years, that is one thing that I’ve heard from former clients that they appreciate the most. If they need to talk to me, they can, when they need to.
HOW MUCH IS MY CASE WORTH?
The "value" of your claim – i.e. the amount of money you’re entitled to recover, is based on a number of factors: if you are entitled to recover, from whom you’re entitled to recover, the amount of coverage, your medical expenses (past and future), your lost wages (past and future), the costs of litigating the case, your pain, suffering, anguish, and loss of enjoyment in life, and the venue of the case- to name just a few.
The job of correctly analyzing the variables that go into a fair, reasonable, and accurate value opinion is a vital role of a personal injury attorney. If you have been injured in an accident, call me. I provide a complimentary legal opinion and analysis to all my potential clients. During this strategy meeting, we'll discuss the progression of your claim, and the various factors that play into the determination of fair compensation for you.
