Personal Note

The practice of workers’ compensation has been a rewarding experience for me, both in terms of the intellectual challenges and the relationships developed along the way. Having rebooted following various reforms going back to 1991, I feel I have gained a valuable perspective on the workers’ compensation system, and have established career-long relationships with clients, judges, doctors and opposing counsel.

I enjoy travel and languages.
