Since 1996, Paul’s professional focus has been litigation of serious injury and insurance-related disputes. He holds a prestigious “AV” rating from Martindale-Hubbell©, demonstrating that his peers rank him at the highest level of professional and ethical excellence.

Since then, he has been privileged to represent good people injured by the negligence of others. Paul litigates insurance disputes, injury claims, cases arising from motor vehicle and motorcycle collisions, cases arising from dog attacks, and cases arising from property hazards or defective products.
