He is actively involved in every stage of litigation – case strategy, depositions, drafting pleadings and motions, court appearances, trial preparation, and trial team work. He has been responsible for drafting and arguing numerous critical dispositive motions and has taken and defended numerous depositions, including those of plaintiffs, fact witnesses, treating physicians, corporate representatives, and experts throughout the country.
