  • “I was very impressed by the firm’s thoroughness in pre-trial preparation and analysis of the factors of the case. Because of the depth of preparation and the skill displayed in addressing issues during trial, the firm was able to reach a successful conclusion, for which I am very grateful.”

  • “George – I was intimidated by the legal process and was very worried that the outcome would be grim. But after our first meeting, I was encouraged by your knowledge and confidence. Knowing that I had the help of an attorney like you made the process much more tolerable. In the end, I was completely satisfied with the favorable outcome you helped to reach. I am hugely appreciative of the hard work and competent defense by you and Richard. I would highly recommend your firm for any physicians involving in medical malpractice cases”

  • “George – I will never be able to express to you the profound impact your representation in this case had upon my spirit. I promise you that I will always be the doctor you made the jury believe I was. I also find that the experience with the trial and the jury, has made me more caring and thoughtful with people I meet in everyday life and less judgmental. I have the greatest respect for those members of the jury who supported me through the convolutions of this case, and I shall never forget them”
