I live in Louisville, Kentucky, and you might know me as “The Hammer” if you’ve seen any of my commercials. I went to the University of Kentucky and University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law. I started my PI firm with my father Sheldon in the early 1990s, and I’m proud to say it has grown both in size and success. We have had over 80 cases with $1 million or more in settlements and verdicts, including a $10 million verdict in federal court and over $2 billion in total recovery. I truly learned what my clients go through back in 2015, when I was hit by a car and left with a broken neck, a TBI, and a long road to recovery. Experiencing that gave me a greater understanding and compassion for their situations and a drive to help as many injured and struggling people as I can. I am also passionate about sharing and growth for other attorneys, which is why I started the yearly Brain Trust Legal Group Summit to help attorneys grow their firms. The 2023 Summit in Nashville will focus on How to Build a Billion-Dollar Law Firm, and tickets are available at https://summit.braintrustlegalgroup.com. The Brain Trust Legal Group also runs four Mastermind groups where I work with 55 law firms from all over the country, and we have a Billion-Dollar Coaching program to help attorneys with growth training and accountability.

I am the son of a personal injury trial lawyer who made sure my pee wee basketball jersey was 33 1/3. Like most kids, I repelled from doing what was suggested and I never wanted to be a trial lawyer. After earning an undergraduate degree in Finance and Marketing from Syracuse University, I started working as a stockbroker’s assistant. I quickly realized Wall Street was not for me and I went to law school where my dad went, Brooklyn Law.

Upon graduation, I joined his firm and picked my first jury the day after I was admitted. I must admit, my dad was right, and I love the practice of law. After trying dozens of cases for 5 years, I went back to school for an Executive MBA where I used the program to workshop systems for a professional service firm. The systems developed permitted me to grow my dad’s firm from one office in one location and hour North of NYC to five separate law firms in four states with over 20 offices. Throughout the business expansion I always stayed close to the court room and still try catastrophic cases.

Professionally, I spend a lot of time mentoring and teaching. I frequently lecture on all aspects of trial and various trial lawyer associations. As a founding member of Trial School, I am actively involved in both the planning and presentation of continuing legal education programs. When not working I enjoy travelling, hiking, playing any racquet sport and just hanging out with my wife and three kids.

I was born in Easton, Maryland, the middle child of three brothers. Because my father was in the Coast Guard and moved around a lot, I never lived anywhere longer than two years until my senior year of high school. I floundered through dozens of jobs early on until I found two things that held my interest: writing and teaching. I spent about a decade working dead-end jobs and writing nonfiction books about film history. Then I finally went to college to get a degree so I could become a professor. My dual skills in writing and being a professor at University of Tampa ended up working well for my transition into legal marketing, where I started working with a company called Social Firestarter as the Creative Director. I still write books and scripts, and I even had a film made that premiered on the Hallmark Movie Channel called The Redemption of Henry Myers. I've written four nonfiction books, three fiction books, and too many articles and screenplays to count. My two current passions are: helping attorneys with their branding & marketing, and watching scary movies.
