I love diving into medical records and trying to find out what happened. I love helping my clients find closure to a difficult situation by providing answers they cannot otherwise get. I love the adversarial process of trying to find the truth through depositions and other means of discovery. There is nothing better than fighting for your client to receive the justice they deserve.
