He has subsequently received this honor numerous times. He was chosen as one of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers and the Top 40 Under 40 by the National Trial Lawyers. He has received numerous other professional awards and recognitions, but cares most of all for the results he is able to obtain for his clients.
