Since 1983, I have devoted my practice exclusively to representing people injured by the negligence of another. The fundamental philosophy of my practice is that I treat each client the exact way that I would want to be treated if I were injured by someone else's negligence. I have represented over 2,000 injured victims over the past 25+ years. As a sole practitioner, I limit the number of cases active in my firm so that I can remain personally involved in each and every client.
I have found in my practice that a recovery is maximized only after a lawsuit is filed, and depositions are taken. Often a case will not settle until trial is near. Therefore, each and every case involves a substantial amount of work to maximize the recovery. I am conscientious and care deeply for my clients, treating them as if they were family and maintaining long-standing relationships with each.
I have been given the highest rating by the only recognized, reliable rating service, Martindale-Hubbell. My AV-rating is a rating given to me by other lawyers in the Indianapolis Metropolitan area. The AV peer review rating is defined as follows, 'An AV-rating is a significant accomplishment-a testament to the fact that a lawyers peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence.'
In the 1980's I was a special agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation. At that time, my daily activities consisted of trying to locate and apprehend bank robbers and fugitives.
I attended Perry Meridian High School where I played varsity basketball and football. I then went on to play basketball at Wabash College.
