He has been practicing for thirty years with a focus on litigation matters including probate disputes, breaches of fiduciary duties, contested guardianship hearings, business disputes involving contracts and unfair competition, construction disputes, shareholder and partnership disputes, as well as the defense of ADA lawsuits.
