Pro bono/Community Service:
This year I was asked to be an Expert Witness in a case in Chicago Dealing with the September 11th Victims Compensation Fund. I was honored and priviledged that the Special Master of the original Fund, Kenneth Feinberg, sent a two page letter on my behalf which basically served to qualify me as an expert in the case. It will go down as one of the highlights of my legal career. After I testified the claim was settled for a dollar amount which in effect would have made it one of the highest dollar value award for a death case in the first fund. For my services instead of a fee, donations in the amont of $5,000.00 each, were made on behalf of the family for whom I testified, to both the Uniform Firefighters Widows and Children's Fund and the Uniformed Officers Bravest Fund. I was honored to have been abled to make this $10,000.00 Donation this past Christmas.
He is honored to have been selected by his peers to the New York Metro - Superlawyers List for the past 4 years.
