Licensed attorney in the State of Illinois since 1980. Majored in Political Science and received my Bachelor of Arts Degree from Columbia College of Columbia University in New York City in 1976. Received my J.D. in 1979 from The Boston University School of Law. While I loved my time on the East Coast I was glad to return to my roots in Chicago.
Since 1981, I’ve had the privilege of representing individuals and families who have been damaged by the negligence of others. I have fought for their rights and stood up against the big insurance companies and their lawyers who see my clients as nothing more than an insignificant number on a large balance sheet. Coming from a working class family I know what happens when paychecks disappear or the family car can no longer be driven. Probably the most important thing I’ve learned in my professional legal career is every case and every client is different. I’ve learned how important it is to treat my clients with respect and honesty. They expect it and they appreciate it.
I worked for and was a partner at a large Chicago personal injury firm for many years. I opened my own office in 2000. In November of 2019, I began the third and final chapter of my legal career when Larry Disparti invited me to join his firm. I’m tremendously excited to be working with so many talented, energetic and caring individuals.
I’ve been happily married since 1985 (I remember the year by remembering the Bear’s Super Bowl season, don’t tell my wife). I have two grown sons whose mother did a tremendous job in raising them. My hobbies and relaxation come from cooking, smoking pig and watching my beloved White Sox. I coached little league baseball for many years and am currently a board member for our community league.
