For that reason, I work very hard – harder than most. I do it because I love what I do and I am constantly striving to improve, learn new ways of doing things, better ways of connecting with juries. My clients deserve no less.I am proud of all of the great work that my team and I have done for our clients. Some of the cases in which I have made the biggest difference for my clients have included traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, motorcycle accidents, trucking and car accidents, medical malpractice cases, insurance bad faith cases, wildfire litigation, and product liability lawsuits.One of my trial victories involves what is believed to be the largest medical malpractice jury verdict in Sacramento County history. With a former law partner, I recovered $7.6 million on behalf of a young woman rendered T4 paraplegic due to a Medical Centers failure to diagnose a mass on her spine.For the past four years, I have personally represented hundreds of families and business owners who lost everything due to preventable wildfires throughout California.
