I litigate cases on behalf of individuals and businesses, from inception through trial, and in appellate and post-judgment matters. I also represent clients in administrative matters, as well as some transactional work and contract drafting.
Areas of Practice: commercial, personal injury, matrimonial, employment and general civil practice.
Fees: Free confidential initial consultations. Fee arrangements vary depending on the nature of the litigation, and are governed by each individual client's retainer agreement. In general, plaintiff's personal injury cases are one-third contingency; matrimonial, commercial, and general civil matters are hourly at a rate of $400 - $450 per hour against an up-front retainer; and employment cases depend on the facts of the case, ranging from full contingency, to full hourly, or a hybrid arrangement.
