Summary

I have been practicing in the field of personal injury law for more than 40 years. I enjoy the close relationships, which I build with my clients throughout the course of a case. I do my best to put my clients at ease and trust that they feel safe and secure in the environment we have created in our firm. I represent people who suffer personal injuries arising from all types of motor vehicle accidents, such as car, bus, truck, and commercial vehicles. Also, injuries from motor vehicle accidents arising from uninsured and under-insured motor vehicles. I also prosecute slip and fall cases against commercial property owners, supermarkets and big box stores. I also represent people who have been injured by dog bites. In addition, I represent people injured in the course of their employment. These are commonly referred to as workers comp cases. In addition, I defend people charged with any type of motor Cecile violations (tickets), DWI, possession of CDS and other maters handling in our state's municipal courts.

Fees
  • Free Consultation
    Telephone consultations are without charge. Personal injury and workers compensation cases are handled on a contingent fee basis of 1/3 in personal injury and 20% in workers comp. All fees in workers comp are subject to approval by a judge of compensation. In both personal injury and workers comp, you pay no fee, unless we recover for you. In other matters such as DWI, or when a client receives motor vehicle summonses, we may offer a flat fee or an hourly rate.
  • Contingent Fees
  • Rates, Retainers and Additional Information
    DUI & DWI, matters in New Jersey's Municipal Courts and criminal matters are not handled on a contingent fee basis. Matters not related to personal injury or workers compensation are usually handled on an hourly or "flat fee" basis.

Legal Answers
20 Questions Answered

Q. I would like to file a motion to seal records of a NJ Supreme Court/Appellate Division. Where do I file?
A: It's public information by law.
Q. When I was under the car, One of scissors jack suddenly broke down and my car came down on my arm.
A: The first question any personal urinary attorney will ask is-do you have the scissor jack. The reasoning is to determine if there is a product defect. This can only be determined if an appropriate engineer can examine it and determine why it failed. The 1st thing the product manufacture is going to raise is whether you erred in the way that you used it or set it up, so that's why maintaining possession of the scissor jack is imperative. It certainly would be helpful to have the receipt for the purchase, but it is usually not a deal breaker, because under our product liability law, the retailer isn't liable for a product defect, if the manufacturer is identified. It is also important for you to get medical treatment and learn how serious/significant your injury is. The take away: get medical treatment and consult a lawyer who is Certified by the NJ Supreme Court as a Civil Trial Lawyer, as soon as is convenient for you.
Q. My traffic court date has been changed 3 times. Since then I moved to NJ and need to change my license for work. Can I?
A: I would speak with a lawyer, who can contact the court clerk and prosecutor, and resolve your case and move it ahead on the docket with a guilty plea by affidavit, where there is no live court appearance.
