As a Partner at MCB, John brings his substantial experience along with an unwavering commitment to client service. Keenly aware of the disruption that medical malpractice claims force upon his clients—as well as the accompanying intrusiveness into their professional and personal lives—John prides himself on being available 24/7 to guide his clients through the litigation process; providing counsel, answering questions, and addressing all concerns along the way. As a result, his clients are meticulously prepared for whatever they may encounter during the litigation process. Combining this client-focused approach with aggressive defense strategies, John has successfully represented medical professionals and institutions at trial throughout New York City and the Hudson Valley.
