My Practice Areas


Ian accepts your personal injury case on a contingency basis, meaning, you don’t pay anything out of your pocket from inception to the conclusion of your lawsuit, unless otherwise agreed upon. For plaintiff personal injury matters, you never are presented with periodic bills for Ian’s time. Ian is paid by deducting a percentage from the recovery obtained. In the event recovery is impossible, you do not pay for any legal services, except, perhaps, the out of pocket costs, and sometimes expenses, for which Ian paid in prosecuting your claim. Examples of costs and expenses are mailing charges, outside photocopying costs, Court fees, and expert report fees. Invariably Ian will minimize these costs and expenses for the client’s benefit.

Should Ian secure recovery on your behalf, Ian is entitled to 33.3% of the proceeds, after costs have been deducted. The costs are always recoverable by Ian from the client, unless otherwise agreed.

For matters outside of plaintiff personal injury, Ian may charge an hourly rate to be determined on a case by case basis or upon a flat fee.

If you are concerned about not being able to afford legal representation, please call Ian and discuss with him your circumstances. He sounds intense, but is a nice guy.

Ian was born on a public holiday- Veteran’s Day, November 11, 1977 in Good Samaritan Hospital, Suffern, New York to loving parents, Wendy and Warren who went on to have another son Jason, who is a successful Cantor in Northern Virginia. Since Veteran’s Day was a public holiday, Ian enjoyed public school closures throughout his early years and has extended that tradition into his Firm, making Veteran’s Day his Firm’s first recognized holiday.

Ian learned from his early years. That fighting through physical altercation or violence was unacceptable. Rather, Ian fought through using his words, for words yielded an insurmountable amount of power which violence could never achieve. Underneath Ian’s sarcastic, strong and serious exterior is a thoughtful and compassionate man who vigorously fights for those who find themselves incapable of using words, or articulating messages in furtherance of their cause or in their defense.

For Ian, there is no separation between personal and professional life as an attorney’s job is a 24/7 undertaking. You can always expect from Ian an insightful and razor-sharp approach to any obstacle preventing a path forward. Particularly sensitive to the needs and unique attributes of minority populations, it is always better to have Ian on your side than against. For to those who perpetrate discrimination, victimization and marginalization against the less powerful, less funded, and less connected, Ian ensures a complete exhaustion of his efforts. Never being intimidated by the amount of money or resources an adversary may possess, if Ian believes his cause is worth pursuing, or that his voice must be heard, little or nothing gets in his way. The battle will be long over before Ian gets off the field. Call Ian up, get to know the guy.

Let him stand up for you, if you cannot stand up for yourself.

What To Do If You Are In An Accident

Useful Tips

  1. Do not move your body unless it is safe to do. If not, call for help.
  2. If you can move, take a few minutes to clear your head to see if you know what happened.
  3. Ascertain where you are, what time it is, and where you were going.
  4. Take notice of visible injuries that need immediate attention- bleeding, twisted limbs etc.
  5. Call the police/ambulance because it is crucial to memorialize the accident even if you were the only one involved.
  6. If someone else was involved, do you best to exchange pertinent information – complete identities, addresses, phone numbers, emails, and insurance information.
  7. Ascertain if anyone saw the incident. If so, obtain that person’s complete identity, address, phone number, and email.
  8. If you are on a worksite, or in a store or facility, report the incident immediately to the appropriate person or entity. Do not leave without a copy of the report.
  9. If you have a smart phone, try to take photographs of the scene, ie- address demarcations, instrumentalities involved in the accident, such as potholes, a broken bike, a defective handrail or snow and ice covered walkway.
  10. If you are in the slightest bit of pain, it is imperative that you leave the scene of the accident in an ambulance and be seen by the Emergency Room of the nearest Hospital. We understand that people don’t like hospitals, but immediate medical care is essential, not only so you can ensure your health and well-being, but to demonstrate that you sustained a real and objectively confirmed injury.
  11. Follow up on all of your medical appointments and obtain the proper documentation to remain out of work for the time the doctor or hospital staff recommends. Do not leave the facility without a letter.
  12. Most importantly, call Ian and tell him what happened. He’ll take care of everything else.
