He is a Partner and concentrates his practice on helping victims of construction accidents, trucking accidents, defective products and medical malpractice. In every case, Mr. Siporin tries to put himself in his client’s shoes. “I try to fully understand the extent of the hardships my clients have endured.

His approach has resulted in numerous multi-million dollar settlements and verdicts on behalf of his clients.
