He handles complex medical negligence cases in all specialties, and routinely tries cases involving catastrophic injuries.

During law school, he was fortunate to secure a clerkship with the newly formed defense firm of Wright, Young and McGilvery. He went on to join the firm as an associate in 1991, and the position provided unique insight into the dedication and commitment necessary to excel as a medical malpractice litigator.super-lawyer-logo
