I'm convinced Anthony Bourdain calculates every answer he gives for maximum trolling. A magazine once asked him what wine he liked, to which he responded: "Petruce." You know, the one that costs thousands per bottle and is impossible to find.

It's true: practicing law is hard, so let's just generally talk about other fun stuff. "There is no expedient to which man will not resort to evade the real labor of thinking.”

As is unfortunately common, the Court's preferences for the outcomes trump the fair, consistent application of principles.

Has corporate America and its lawyers become so accustomed to winning in the courts, so self-assured by judicial recognition of their “right” to manipulate elections and to quash consumer lawsuits with arbitration agreements and insurmountable legal standards, that one of the most profitable and valuable corporations in the world feels ‘the deck is stacked against it’ if a judge fails to give their self-serving assertions a round of applause?

It seems the total lack of scientific or medical evidence for their argument has forced ACOG to go from "ridiculous" to merely "wrong."

If a lawyer can't coach a witness on the record with the "if you know" objection, how can they demand to go off the record and do the same (or worse)?

Another day, another lawyer flaunting the wealth of their client as part of a threat. We who represent plaintiffs are used to this offensive garbage.

One of the biggest issues of our time: the fact that college is for most a rigged, overpriced game that leaves them saddled with debt with no improved prospects solely because the college failed to use that money to help them.
Rich students complete their college degrees; working-class students like Vanessa Brewer usually don’t. Can the University of Texas change her chances of success?

When I hear a defense lawyer complain about "good faith," I think to myself: "I do not think that word means what you think it means."

Story
Tagline
Personal injury lawyer who blogs and writes books about the law. Not shy about being a trial lawyer.
Introduction
I'm a trial lawyer in Philadelphia who represents plaintiffs in civil litigation, with a focus on catastrophic cases like birth injury as well as some product liability lawsuits like Actos and bladder cancer or vaginal mesh erosion cases. 

As a professional hobby, I write a law blog that discusses the issues that arise in the litigation and trial of personal injury and medical malpractice cases. 

I've co-authored one book on the law, a guide to civil discovery for Pennsylvania lawyers, and I'm working on another book about federal law.

If I'm not working, I'm taking my three young kids somewhere like apple picking or the zoo.

Bragging rights
Father of three, trial lawyer, published author and blogger. Haven't had a good night's sleep in years.
