I am passionate about obtaining fair compensation for consumers who are seriously injured through medical malpractice, defective products, nursing home neglect and abuse and motor vehicle accidents.  That passion is born of a belief in the intrinsic value of human life and the need to protect our fundamental human rights to life, liberty and security of person.
