My job as a plaintiff’s lawyer is to seek justice on behalf of people injured by defective products or fraudulent conduct, and to help them regain at least some of what they’ve lost. Success in that regard requires approaching each case with a meticulously planned strategy, intimate knowledge of the law, and tireless dedication to the job.
