Practice Overview:
Insurance companies and judges know our reputation as honest lawyers. When we speak for you, they listen. (They don’t always agree, but they listen!) And, when insurance companies don’t agree, they know we are ready, willing and able to take a righteous case to trial. So, we get excellent settlements in the overwhelming majority of our cases. (Whether or not to settle for an offered amount is always our clients’ decision. We recommend – you decide.)

Jurisdiction(s):
Arizona

Professional Profile:
I have been active in leadership in the Arizona Association for Justice (lawyers who represent injured folks, and formerly known as the Arizona Trial Lawyers Association) since 1985. I served as President in 1991. I was an active participant in battles to protect the Arizona Constitution from the insurance industry and big business interests in 1986, 1990 and 1994. I have been called upon multiple times over the years to testify at the Arizona Legislature regarding bills affecting consumer rights, product liability, medical malpractice and insurance law. I have argued multiple appellate cases and have appeared before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, Arizona Supreme Court and Arizona Court of Appeals.
