How long have you worked at Monsees & Mayer? Within the legal profession?
Richard Miller, Daniel DeFeo and I started what was then known as Monsees, Miller & DeFeo in 1995. I have been practicing since October of 1981.
What inspired you to pursue a career in the legal industry?
I always wanted to serve in a profession that helped people. And I have always had strong speaking skills, so law seemed a compatible profession. Helping people has continued to inspire me.
What do you love most about your job?
Finding a way to help people who have suffered a tragedy have a somewhat better opportunity to adjust to their injuries and make the best of the financial impacts that invariably accompany such injuries.
If there was one thing you would want clients or future clients to know about the Monsees & Mayer team, what would it be?
I think we care more than many personal injury attorneys. It is a business, but we have always put the client’s needs above our own.
What would you say is the highlight of your career thus far? Highlight of working at Monsees & Mayer? Biggest accomplishment?
I have had some outstanding results in individual cases, but I think the biggest accomplishment is the global book of results for hundreds of, not just a few, clients, sizable results. The comparatively smaller result may mean as much to a client as someone whose injuries warrant millions of dollars.
Anything else you’d like to add?
Monsees & Mayer has outstanding people. I love working with them and clients can rest assured that everyone here has the very best of intentions to secure our clients the best, possible result.
