Firm Philosophy

I have been an attorney practicing personal injury law and criminal defense for almost 30 years.  I am committed to my clients and devote myself to protecting their interests from the beginning to the end of the case.  I have spent my career helping clients fight insurance companies and prosecutors,  and taking on cases that other attorneys walk away from.

I am a trial attorney – I have conducted over 90 trials and hundreds of hearings.  I have tried cases in almost every county in the Capital District and its adjoining counties, New York City, Syracuse, Utica and others.  I was trained well in the courts of New York City in the late 1980’s.  I am prepared to go the distance and commit myself to a trial defense if a satisfactory resolution cannot be obtained.  You will never be passed off to another attorney during the case – I will handle your case throughout and because of my experience I will either negotiate the best settlement available or take the case to a jury.

I am also a skilled and experienced negotiator who understands that resolutions are reached in two ways: by establishing quality working relationships with adversaries and making sure they understand that we are prepared to litigate if an agreement cannot be reached.  As a result I have negotiated thousands of cases for satisfied clients.
