I come from a family of Philadelphia blue collar workers and understand how important a weekly paycheck is.  I was the first in my generation to go to college and then law school. I worked my way through both. 

I have been evaluating and litigating workers’ compensation cases for most of my 27 year legal career.  I worked in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas as a law clerk.   I later worked for the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.  Both of these positions provided significant insight into decisions that shaped the law.  I also tried many criminal cases which gave me invaluable trial experience. 

I carry these experiences into our workers’ compensation practice and work to maximize an injured worker’s benefits.  While I have effectively negotiated workers’ compensation settlements, my vast experience enables me to try a case as well.  So if a settlement is not in a client’s best interest,  I can fight to get a successful decision from the Judge. 

A sample of the settlements I obtained include:

    $300,000 –  post concussion syndrome;

    $190,000 – aggravation of degenerative condition in knee;

    $150,000 – carpal tunnel syndrome;

    $180,000 – lumbar disc herniation

    Let me fight for you.  I will personally handle your matter. I will always take the time to listen to your questions and understand your concerns.
