Biography: With more than 30 years of practicing law, Gary has developed extensive experience in several areas of civil litigation. He has successfully defended clients in areas of premises liability, medical liability, mold and asbestos litigation, motor vehicle liability, eminent domain, as well as civil rights.

In addition to the hundreds of asbestos cases, trials, and arbitrations with which he has been involved since 1979, Gary has taken approximately 50 cases to trial before juries. His commercial clients have included manufacturers of asbestos containing products, construction companies, commercial businesses, and owners of vehicles in personal injury matters.
