"My background as a health professional allows me to understand both the technical and the personal aspects of dealing with injuries and illnesses. My experience as a defense attorney has given me an insight into the tactics and strategies used by insurance companies to limit the amounts they pay on claims. The combination gives me a unique ability to help injured people obtain the compensation they deserve."
