I am a former police officer with two decades of experience as an attorney and a litigator. My main practice area is personal injury claims and have represented many police officers for injuries they received either on or off duty. I am also a former Assistant District Attorney where I was also a member of the Motor Vehicle Homicide Unit. I have more than 150 jury trials, along with countless bench trials, motion hearings, arbitrations and mediations. See my full qualifications at www.InjuredPolice.com.
Receiving an injury during a police action adds unique elements that are not part of an ordinary personal injury case. For example, a cruiser accident isn’t just an auto accident, and resisting arrest isn’t like a barroom brawl. As a former police officer, I have the experience to understand the complexities of your situation that led to your injury. That’s why I’m dedicated to representing injured police officers and their families throughout the Commonwealth.
I also concentrate in the area of insurance coverage matters or more commonly called improper insurance denials. This concentration allows me to see past the initial denials of a claim for lack of coverage (alleging an exclusion applies) and getting my client’s compensated. I recently won a denial of coverage case, having taken the issue to the Supreme Judicial Court, for a police officer injured on duty.
Your matter will receive my personal attention and your telephone calls will be returned promptly. All initial consultations are free.
