    TALLAHASSEE — The Florida Supreme Court on Thursday rejected the centerpiece of the 2003 medical malpractice overhaul, blasting the Legislature for creating an "alleged medical malpractice crisis" and concluding, in a 5-2 ruling, that a cap on wrongful death noneconomic damages violates the U.S. and...

    Most doctors are good wonderful human beings who help and don't hurt. However, if you harm someone, you should be responsible for the full measure of the harm you cause. The $250 cap was put into place more than 38 years ago. Let's raise it to reflect the rate of inflation. Let's also say asking doctors to pee in a cup is not a bad thing! Good docs should not be afraid of this change!

    "Trial lawyers and consumer groups are pushing a measure that would raise the cap on pain and suffering damages in medical malpractices cases from $250,000 to approximately $1.1 million. It would also require doctors to be drug tested and to check a statewide database when prescribing certain medications to clamp down on prescription drug abuse."

    It is time for a change! Sometimes $250,000 for pain and suffering damages is not enough in light of the damage. Take a minute and watch this sort video - a story from a medical malpractice victim. Thanks!

    My firm is a small boutique law firm that offers personalized service to all prospective clients. Because I focus exclusively on personal injury cases, I am extremely familiar with California law concerning personal injury and medical malpractice cases.  In addition to being involved in various bar organization, I was also nominated a “Rising Star” by Super Lawyers.  Prior to opening my own law firm, I worked for one of the largest personal injury and workers’ compensation law firms in California.  I have been practicing Law since 2000.  I am well known and respected by judges and attorneys alike in the Los Angeles Area.  As such I have the experience needed to assist you in resolving your disputes in court.

    I have helped individuals recover tens of millions of dollars to compensate them for their losses, including losses for personal injuries, lost wages and loss of future wages, loss of past and future medical expenses. I also have experience handling claims for wrongful termination, sexual harassment and business litigation, including breach of contract and fraud.

    When you or a loved one is injured in a car accident, slip and fall or are the victim of medical malpractice it is imperative to find an attorney with experience to handle your law suit.

    I am also a Rotarian in the Westchester Rotary Club.  I believe that Rotary’s motto of service above self is a part of my practice of law – helping injured victims receive the justice they deserve through legal process.
