Legal Malpractice Expert 426934 NJ

Expertise Description

I have over 35 years experience as a practicing attorney and have expertise in the area of legal malpractice. Half of my practice is devoted to complex litigation and half to handling appeals. My legal malpractice work came as an offshoot of my appellate practice, as many potential appellate cases turn out to involve legal malpractice. My expertise includes breach of contract actions, warranty claims and insurance disputes, business litigation, complex high asset/income divorce proceedings, and consumer class actions. I also offer knowledge advice regarding disputes over fees charged by attorneys, experts, or forensic accountants. I have prior expert witness experience, including deposition testimony.
