“Having practiced law for nearly 30 years, and spending nearly half of that time working for insurance companies, before coming to Edelman and Thompson, I bring a well-rounded perspective to my representation of injured victims. Since I defended personal injury claims for so long, I know how insurance companies evaluate claims and what tactics their lawyers use. The knowledge I’ve gained from years of working on both sides of personal injury claim, gives me a unique advantage in handling claims for my injured clients.”
