These cases represent a cross-section of my litigation practice.
My clients’ mother concealed the existence of assets they were to inherit. A suit for abuse of confidence and intentional interference with the expectancy of inheritance resulted in a settlement exceeding $5 Million Dollars.
My client’s claim for catastrophic injuries when a truck broadsided his car resulted in a settlement for $2.9 Million Dollars.
My client’s claim for medical malpractice against her gynecologist for misdiagnosis of her breast cancer resulted in a structured settlement with a value exceeding $1 Million Dollars.
After suit for defamation and breach of rights under the university’s policy on research, my scientist client’s research paper was ultimately published and was the subject of an application for a patent. My former scientist client is a world renowned expert on nuclear security.
For the past 40 years, I have provided legal services for businesses and individuals in the fields of commercial real estate, residential and commercial construction, logistics, manufacturing, information technology and financial management.
My litigation experience is a huge benefit in representing clients in business and personal transactions that enables me to help clients avoid problems that would otherwise result in litigation.
I have represented closely held businesses in the organization, operation, governance, regulation, alternative resolution of disputes and cost effective management of litigation.
Representing businesses and the owners in their personal matters includes asset protection strategies and liability avoidance planning.
Planning for succession includes business valuation documents, wills, trusts, health care powers of attorney, careful analysis of jointly-owned property, insurance policies and payable on death contracts to carry out my client’s objectives.
Litigation risks can be reduced to its minimum with a litigation risk analysis and through well-crafted business documents that provide for alternative methods of resolving disputes, and by documenting accurate communications. When litigation can’t be avoided, it is possible to control litigation through appropriate written litigation benchmarks, strategies and budgets.
