As a personal injury trial attorney with a practice dedicated solely to representing seriously injured individuals for over 30 years, some might say he literally lives, breathes, eats and sleeps for his clients. No one knows this better than his clients when they receive return telephone calls or emails from him, any time a response is needed... even on the weekends! His clients are not big companies. They are regular people and the driving force behind his work is the motivation to help them. The commitment he shows to his clients has been consistently validated, in writing, through our clients' many unsolicited hand written letters, testimonials and 5 star reviews.
I was born in Philadelphia as well as both my parents, who were a part of the so called "Greatest Generation", my father having fought in WWII. They exemplified the strong work ethic of working full time until retirement while raising three children. My first job in the city found me as food and beverage vendor working the stands at Phillies home games and the Army Navy games during High School. While in college I worked in the summers starting the day as a house painter, painting interiors, exteriors, climbing high roofs, eaves, using scaffolds, you name it etc. Afterwards, I went to my second job working the 4:00 p.m. to midnight shift as a cab driver in Philadelphia for Yellow Cab Company. During xmas and spring breaks I drove for cab companies in the outlying suburban counties.
After law school I worked in a general litigation firm handling criminal defense, divorce, insurance defense and civil rights which introduced me to work in the courtroom. While newly married I left a secure position in a firm as a personal injury trial attorney to start my own practice. I thought, here is a window of opportunity to launch a practice before raising a family came into the picture . Some have asked "How did I start my practice?" The answer is when I opened my first office, I had less than a handful of cases and my wife was keeping us afloat with her salary as an early childhood education director/teacher. Given the pressure and uncertainty, I treated each case as if it was my only case, because it was! Since I felt my very survival and client's satisfaction were dependent upon results, I developed the habit and resolve to go for the "home run" if the case warranted it, no matter how big or small. The added bonus was my own satisfaction in knowing that my hard work and perseverance have possibly produced life changing results for someone. It also reinforced the notion of what a weighty responsibility it was to be entrusted with representing another person and unquestionably you were going to give it your all knowing you were your client's best shot because it was their only case. I am appreciative of the opportunity to make a positive impact on every client's life that I have the honor of representing and some have remained not only clients, but count upon me as a friend.
Quality Representation With The Focus On Results Has Always Been The Firm's Driving Force
The goal and pride in providing quality representation has also been a driving force behind this firm and whenever I am handing my injured client's check to them I feel as though I'm giving them back a piece of their life.
I am proud of the fact this firm was literally built, "brick by brick", case by case, one client at a time. I consider it an honor and privilege to serve you and your family. When a person entrusts me and I accept to represent them, I don't take that relationship and responsibility lightly. As a well established Pennsylvania injury law firm, my mission has been simple; to treat each client as we would want to be treated if the roles were reversed. As a result of this care, we regularly have individuals coming to this office that were referred by my very first generation of clients over 30 years ago.
