Thank you for visiting my Brain Damage Blog. I am an attorney who dedicates his entire practice to representing those with brain injury. I have been authoring web pages devoted to providing information about brain injury since 1996, including: and its companion site:

I am an attorney with nearly 30 years of experience. I am a member of the Wisconsin, Illinois and Michigan bars, and handle cases throughout the United States. I have offices in Chicago and Sheboygan, Wisconsin. I currently have additional cases in such places as Ohio, Iowa, Arkansas and Connecticut, and have close affiliations with lawyers in other places, particularly New York, California and Pennsylvania.

My advocacy is not limited to legal representation of the brain injured, but also includes a daily commitment to education and advocacy. Our authorship of, The Coma Waiting Page, has brought information about coma to thousands of family members while they awaited someone to emerge from a coma.

I have long felt a mission to change the medical communities vision of concussion, and to that end, copyrighted the term “subtle brain injury” and its web page, in 1999. Currently, we are in development of a new advocacy mission, which I call Concussion Clinics, an effort to change the protocol for concussion care for average citizens to the daily monitoring that athletes get after head injury. See our You Tube videos on that issue at

I am a member of the Brain Injury Association of Wisconsin My service for the BIA-WI has included serving two terms on its board of directors and editing the association’s newsletter. I was also appoined by Wisconsin’s governor to the state sub-agency, the TBI-Advisory Board.

I am currently the Vice Chair of the Association of Trial Lawyers of America, Litigation Group for TBI.
