I am a Westlake Village and Thousand Oaks personal injury attorney with more than fifteen years of experience handling such cases. I have received high settlement awards, including one of over a million dollars, for most of my clients—without going to trial. My areas of practice include car accidents, motorcycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, brain injuries, slip and fall accidents, and serious injuries.
I am licensed to practice law before the Supreme Court of United States of America, United States Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, United States District Court—Central District, United States Tax Court, United States Court of Federal Claims, Supreme Court of California, and all state courts in California. I am a member of the Consumers Attorneys of Los Angeles, the Ventura County Bar Association, the Los Angeles County Bar Association, and the Freemasons.
I have received advanced training at the National Institution for Trial Advocacy and the National Institution for Deposition Skills. This training has assisted me in being a highly skilled negotiator against insurance companies, allowing me to help clients receive the highest award possible for their injury.
An experienced attorney (like me) will give his clients quality advice regarding their injury case, which can make a huge positive difference in the outcome of their settlement. I believe that everyone is entitled to representation, but just not any type of representation: effective representation. For every client I explain the cost, benefit, and client expectations for each step of the legal process. If and when we must go to court, I insure that my clients are prepared and armed with knowledge. As a result, they are usually at ease and rarely taken by surprise.
As a personal injury attorney, I do everything possible to reduce the stress and anxiety of my clients by being easily reachable by phone, email, or text. Injury clients don’t want to reach a legal assistant or a secretary—they want their questions answered promptly and by an experienced lawyer. If you call me, you will reach me personally, and I return all messages (via phone, email, or text) within a few hours. This type of client contact helps me know each person as an individual, not as a file number. After all, my goal is to find solutions for the person behind the injury.
