My practice centers on the representation of clients involved in expert-intensive, complex litigation.  I primarily handle medical malpractice, product liability and construction defect cases.

I also routinely represent healthcare providers and other professionals in front of a variety of licensing Boards, including the following:

 

  • Arizona Medical Board

  • Arizona Board of Osteopathic Examiners

  • Arizona State Board of Dental Examiners

  • Arizona State Board of Nursing

  • Arizona Board of Behavioral Health

  • Arizona State Veterinary Medical Examining Board

  • Arizona Board of Respiratory Care Examiners

  • Arizona Board of Funeral Directors & Embalmers

 

My product liability and construction defect practice spans everything from automotive, household items, and computer devices.  I have developed a niche practice centering on fires.  Over the course of my career, I have represented a number of Fortune 500 companies, including Honda, Subaru, General Motors, General Electric, Samsung, Sanyo, and others.

Over the course of my career, I have managed litigation involving physicians, hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, dentists, nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, podiatrists, physical therapists, respiratory therapists, chiropractors, behavioral health professionals, veterinarians, and just about every branch of the healthcare profession. 

 

I am drawn to malpractice litigation because I find the work fascinating, and because of the caliber of experts I get to work with on a daily basis.  Ask just about any trial court judge and they will tell you that the attorneys who take on medical malpractice cases are among the most talented litigators they see.  There are a surprisingly small number of attorneys in Arizona who routinely handle malpractice matters because the exposure can be quite high, and because a higher percentage of these cases go to trial than in other areas of law.  This is not an area of law for attorneys who are timid or who want to avoid the courtroom. 

 

I started my career as a prosecutor, where I tried literally hundreds of cases in front of judges.  Now as I approach 20 years in practice, I have successfully taken over fifty jury trials to verdict.  I enjoy the art of persuasion so much that before I went to law school, I obtained my Master’s degree in Communications.  Being a litigator is my passion.
